The Government Chemical Laboratory Authority (GCLA) has presented awards to the best students and teachers nationally who have excelled in Chemistry, Physics and Biology Form Four and Form Six for 2018.
Speaking at the presentation of the awards yesterday in Dar es Salaam, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children, Professor Mabula Mchembe said that the awards provide scope for students who love science subjects and later find experts who will serve the nation.
Professor Mchembe said that GLCA will continue to offer the awards in addition to studies as they have recognized the subjects are interdependent.
He also said that due to Tanzania’s involvement in the middle economy GCLA in collaboration with colleges to start making laboratory items and that potential is possible.
Professor Mchembe, urged parents and encouraged students to love science subjects.
He said that students should be encouraged to love science subjects but in addition to encouraging in school there should be equipment to practice.
“Schools should have all the basic equipment to help students do well and be aware of what they are being taught and not students learning in the classroom without actions while relying on students to know by hearing they need to see what they are saying.
“We have entered the middle economy so the competition is fierce. Students need to study hard, more practically in having experts who are competing in the job market.
“I commend the students who study science subjects as they are given priority on loans as they encourage students to love those subjects” said Professor Mchembe
