Milestone Group of Schools has introduced a new approach to learning which focuses not exclusively on the 'naturally intelligent' pupils but extends the passion to even the 'not so bright' that other schools love to ignore.
Soon after the announcement of grade seven results, parents move from one town to another and from this school to the other in search of form 1 places for their children.
Experience shows that places at most reputable schools are to be secured first by those with 5 units (4 units before the introduction of agriculture as an examinable subject at grade seven). Those who did not perform to that level are regarded as a second option with a narrower chance of securing places.
This is however not the way of doing things at Milestone.
Located in Rusape, 43 km along Nyanga Road, Milestone is a Group A boarding school. Its proprietor is Molly Mfunya who wants to let parents know that their children can do better. She wants to defy the common practice of admitting only the 5 - 6 units cream by accepting those pupils with even 27 units.
This, she says, will be followed by the requisite nurturing of the pupils to produce out of them the desired results.
Mfunya believes every child has a capacity to learn and can do better if he or she is given enough attention and time.
Being a professionally qualified teacher, she believes that children should not be underestimated because each has distinctive potential and capabilities. All teachers at the school are challenged to develop the abilities of every child and to know how to nurture different forms of potential.
The school was registered to offer Zimsec and Cambridge exams from grade seven up to 'A' level. ECD classes are also available in the most enabling environment.
The school offers all sporting disciplines to complement the top notch leaning facilities available. This reporter visited the school and found primary pupils competing in a golf tournament at Montclair, fulfilling Mfunya's desire to mould a child who excels in class, sports or in both.
Milestone Group of Schools is a member of Zimbabwe National Chamber Of Commerce (ZNCC) and Mfunya was recently named business woman of the year 2016 - 2017 first runner up for Manicaland province.
"Don't hesitate to bring your child to Milestone no matter the results. We will work our hearts out to make sure that he or she produces the results that make you the parent proud. Good results should be a challenge to the teacher.
"Can we really call ourselves good teachers if we take only 'good' children? Is it not our job to produce the results we desire out of those who might not be naturally intelligent? Let us measure our capabilities with the number of the so-called slow learners that we help to become successful" said Mfunya.education

  2. If school prepares graduates for employment, but there are limited employment opportunities for unlimited graduates, it means that school prepares students for unemployment. This is why the conception that school merely prepares students for gainful employment is unacceptable.Summer camps for kids

  27. ABSTRACT - Educating the child has always been very important to parents. The Poro and Bondo Secret Societies were institutions where Sierra Leonean children used to undergo training among the Themnes, Kpa Mendes, Sherbros and Konos. These secret societies were very instrumental for the total development of the child. Both secret societies were social and educational institutions which helped to preserve societal norms and values; they served as institutions for higher learning. History reveals that there were no formal schools where children were educated. Parents sent their children to either craftsmen or have them in farms without learning any skills. The introduction of formal education started in the colony after the arrival of ex-slaves in the eighteenth century. This has brought about dramatic changes in the country's educational system. essay writing service

People get information about sex from different sources, and these may sometimes be contradictory and confusing. Sex education should help to clear most of the contradictory concepts about sex.

  48. Higher education in India has entered into a new phase with the invasion of foreign universities and increasing aspirations of Indian students. This has created a need to revive the pedagogical methods. But the question still remains, whether the teaching faculty are ready to accept these changes or not?

  49. Traditional college instruction is part of a well-established tradition that has remained fairly unchanged over time. A college professor is associated with someone who is a subject matter expert, likely to achieve a position with tenure, and have dual roles as an instructor and researcher. It is expected that they will be published authors of scholarly journal articles that have been peer-reviewed and contributed knowledge to their field. While this form of education and instructor still exists, there is another academic institution that has also been established and it is an online college and university. What is needed now more than ever is a new category of educator, one who meets the needs of students who participate in this modern form of education. Now is also the time for online universities to embrace this new form of instructors, those who can be called a Modern Educator. Education Data in the US
