THE Loreto High School student who gave birth and received post-natal care at the school hostel is set to return to class.
Last week, the Form Three student gave birth to a healthy baby in the school’s box room.
Before being moved to Silobela Hospital for additional treatment, she was assisted by health focal teachers, The Chronicle reports.
The incident was later reported to her parents, who transported her home to Gweru, where she is said to be in good health.
According to the school authorities, the 15-year-old transferred to Loreto High at the beginning of Third Term last year and chances are high that she was already pregnant when she enrolled at the Roman Catholic-run boarding school.
Information gathered by the Chronicle indicate that the girl is set to return to class in a month’s time.
Government policy is that girls who give birth are allowed to return to school and continue with their educatiion.
