…Teachers receive tokens of appreciation
GUTU - The Roman Catholic Church run Mutero High School of Gutu last week rewarded its outstanding students and teaching staff at a speech and prize giving day that was held at the school.
The prize giving ceremony was attended by headmasters from other catholic institutions as well as sister schools in the district. Roman Catholic nuns and priests including Mutero Mission Father Superior, Father Vincent Hungwe also attended the function. Also in attendance and standing in for Masvingo Diocese head, Right Reverend Michael Dickson Bhasera was Diosesan Vicar General, Father Walter Nyatsanza.
Father Nyatsanza urged students to take what they learn in the classroom into the community saying the conservation of natural resources should take an integral part in the learning process.
"Not only should we conserve our natural resources for future generations but we should also ensure that the environment is clean.
"Harare used to be called the Sunshine City but look at what is happening today. You should take what you learn in the classroom into the community and educate others on the importance of keeping our environment clean," Father Nyatsanza said.
School headmaster, Severino Shiri, urged students who did not receive prizes to emulate their fellow students and make sure that they could be prize recipients in future.
"You have the ability to perform better and win the accolades in future. Do not despair but make sure that you strive to do better," he said.
Prizes were awarded to the best two students per class per each subject that is offered in the school's curriculum. The overall best student per class received an additional prize.
Vimbai Mutangiri was the best Form One student while Libertty Chingwetu dominated in Form Two. Donald Mboyi and Terence Gonyora outclassed other students in Forms Three and Four. Tanaka Tengawarima and Lewis Mukurumbira stole the honours in the Lower and Upper Sixth Forms respectively.
Teachers were also rewarded for producing quality results that met the expected target of over 70% pass rate in each subject at both Ordinary and Advanced Level.news
