St Clements Alumnus Asks School To Revert to Old Uniform

SCOBA President Moses Nkandu Addressing the gathering

FORMER pupils of St Clements Secondary School in Mansa have castigated school management for changing the pupils’ uniform which the institution has had over forty-two years.
St Clements Old Boys Association (SCOBA) president Moses Nkandu said ever since management changed the school uniform, the institution has lost identity.
Nkandu said the traditional school uniform constituted a black trousers and white shirt before it was recently transformed to brown trousers, cream white shirt and a neck tie.
He argued that the school management’s decision was not justifiable saying it lacked adequate consultation.
Nkandu demanded that their concern be considered immediately before the school completely loses its traditional identity.
The association has also pledged a set of uniforms for all the pupils should the school management consider their concern.
“If the school management reverts back to the old school uniform, we will definitely provide the first set of uniforms as a way of reducing the burden on pupils’ parents and guardians,” he said.
He added that it was in the interest of every former pupil of the school to have the old uniform maintained.
SaintAnd school acting head teacher Charles Mutale disclosed that the uniform was changed because it was too common among the basic schools.
Mutale said it was hard for the management to monitor pupils’ behaviour and activities as it was difficult to identify them especially outside the school premises.

“You are the stakeholders of this school and your concern must not be forsaken. However, it does not only take my administration to create school policies but also the board. So I will forward your concern to the board for sound consideration,” said Mutale.

    mr Mutale aka Cheke please let all the pre-schools, primary schools and secondary schools in Mansa change their attire to black and white for all we care but allow ST CLEMENTS to remain black and white. have you asked yourself why all these other schools are changing their uniforms? maybe they want to emulate ST CLEMENT’S because of it’s moral and educational dominance in Luapula and Zambia as a whole. Charles Imiti ikula e mpanga and even though we left the institution years ago, we still are as united as ever and it is for this reason that we want our identity not to be changed.!!!
