The newly appointed Principal of DUCE, Prof. Bernadeta Killian, reported to the campus this week and had a meeting with all the staff yesterday.

It was all smiles as she entered the New Lecture Theater where DUCE members of the staff were eagerly waiting to meet with her.

This time the theater was coloured with students from Chang’ombe Demonstration Secondary School who led the entire gathering to sing the National Anthem before the activities began.

Those students were impressive,’ the new College chief commented in an aside later. During the meeting, the Principal was introduced to DUCE community including the demonstration schools – pre-school, primary school, and secondary school.
