Female lecturers from public universities have tipped secondary school girls in Machinga on how they can excel in their education.

The lecturers from Polytechnic, Chancellor College and Malawi University of Science and Technology met the girls in Liwonde at an interface meeting organised by Campaign for Female Education.

Almost 100 female learners from Mpiri, Puteya, Machinga, Liwonde and Mbejere secondary schools were enlightened on the different careers offered at the public universities.

A polytechnic lecturer, Gertrude Sitolo encouraged the learners to work hard and avoid situations that would put them in danger of dropping out of school.

Sitolo who is a Dean of students at Polytechnic said “performance is the only yardstick for one to be selected to university and those with MSCE of less than 20 points have more chances.”

Machinga district councils Director of Education Youth and Sports, Yobu Makina described the interface meeting as a very important event for girls to explore their career path.

One of the learners, Alinafe Symon said the interface meeting inspired her to work hard and achieve her dream of becoming an engineer a reality.
