Teaching of science and allied subjects, often short of the required number of teachers, got a boost in Arusha this week after Form VI graduates started teaching as volunteers.

At least 68 graduates from St. Jude school, one of the high profile and charity funded learning institutions here, on Monday began a year of service and started teaching at various government owned schools.

“The majority of them are teaching science and mathematics, key subjects urgently needed for a prosperous future for Tanzania,” the School’s founded Ms Gemma Sisia told The Citizen yesterday.
