The Zimbabwe Open University Harare Regional campus took part in this year’s tree planting exercise when they planted 100 trees at their ZOU Campus in Hatcliffe on Wednesday, 6 December 2017.
Acting Harare Regional Campus Director, Mr Clemence Mabaso, Works Department Director, Ms S. Jeye and other ZOU staff members graced the occasion, a brain child of the Students Representative Council (SRC).
Speaking after the tree planting exercise, SRC Secretary for Internal Affairs and Publicity, Melusi Nhengu said this was a move meant to teach students on how to preserve nature as well as the University’s part of their social responsibility programmes.
Geography students who attended the event suggested to the leadership that they should come up with a Geography club which will then keep on monitoring some of these projects that they would have started.
Nhengu added that they were very happy as SRC because this year’s attendance figures doubled from last year meaning that ZOU students were embracing the importance of preserving nature.
Speaking at the same event, Harare Regional Campus Student Advisor, Mr Taurai Nyatsanza said the Regional Campuses had a number of activities lined up this month to enhance ZOU brand visibility.
