The Department aims at providing equitable access and quality education to children and population of the Rulenge-Ngara Catholic Diocese. It is comprised of educational institutions including pre-primary centers, primary schools, and secondary schools, polytechnic (secondary and vocational training center) and in the near future the diocese is planning to have a teachers’ college, and university that will provide quality education and prepare enough teachers for the diocesan schools.
