Central High International School Urges Stakeholders to Invest in Arts

By Steven Godfrey Mkweteza

Principal for the Blantyre based Central High International School, Nishant Mishra, has called on the stakeholders to take up a leading role in supporting arts from the grassroot levels to ensure sustainability.

Speaking during the art exhibition which the school organized at Jacaranda cultural centre in Blantyre on Saturday, the school’s head teacher said arts need to be fully supported as there is a great demand for artworks around the world.

Mishra noted that pupils should develop an interest while at the tender age just like other successful countries.

“Arts has social economic potential to both the artists who participate and the country as a whole. Therefore, this is our efforts to give more to arts as we want to grow and unearth talent at the grassroot levels,” he said in an interview.

Mishra said his school has now taken a new direction on art, by giving it more attention and space.

“We have now revamped our art department which was in a mess in the past to boost its morale,” he said

A teacher at the school, Prudence Dziopani said she was overwhelmed with the response that the event attracted.

“This shows that people are interested in arts, hence, a need to be fully supported to bring about success,” she said.

Among others, the art exhibition saw students from the school exhibiting artworks alongside pieces by established artists such as Andrew Missing and Peter Chikondi.

At the event, which was spiced up a performance from a Blantyre based Goma Nyondo, the students also staged a production that excited people.

Themed “Recycle, Reduce, Reuse for Better world “, the exhibition attracted a good audience.

“I am impressed with what has been shown around this room today. This shows that the school put much emphasis in inspiring students on arts.

“Students are here showcasing superb artworks and creativity,” said Jones Mlumbe, an audience from Zomba district.

The exhibition, which was the first of its kind, was organised in partnership with Art Malawi in a bid to support the clean up project for Mudi river.
