The enrolment numbers at Matemwe are very high, this leads to classroom overcrowding, as a result the school facilities are overused leading to rapid depreciation. A dilapidated and neglected environment can increase stress levels and therefore impact negatively on concentration and retention in both the learning and teaching environment, learning in an environment where the roof looks like it can come down on the class at any time could cause an unease and anxious learning environment.
