GWERU - Talk of excellence and hard work, Lower Gwelo Adventist High School (LOGAHS) has done just that; recording an impressive 84 percent pass rate in the November 2017 'O' level examinations, beating their 2016 mark by three percentage points.
Their most outstanding pupil emerged with a whopping 16 straight As.
When contacted by TellZim News, deputy school head Jabula Sibanda said he was satisfied with the pace by which the school was progressing in terms of improving the quality of passes.
"We did well and our parents are happy especially those with children who are on top the list of our best performers. Our best pupil has 16 As and the runner ups have 15, 14 and 13 As respectively. We have managed to beat our previous pass rate of 81 percent and that is a sign of hard work on the part of our staff and pupils," said Sibanda.
The SDA Central Zimbabwe Conference, who are the school's responsible authority, said the perfor-mance was reflective of the excellence that all SDA institutions espouse.
The conference's education director, Pastor Lambat Ncube said he was proud of the pace that has been set by the school.
"We are pleased by the hard work that is being done at Lower Gwelo. Those results speak for them-selves but there is still a lot of more hard work to be done in order to make sure that the excellent pace is maintained.
"The other schools that we run as the SDA church have also done well at both 'O' and 'A' levels so this is a sign that both teachers and pupils are working hard. Most importantly, it shows that God is guiding all our efforts," said Pastor Ncube.local
