MWENEZI - G and N Secondary will soon commission newly-built boarding facilities that will put the privately-owned mission school among the best in Masvingo province.
G and N Mission Secondary School, located at Rutenga growth point, has made impressive strides of self-improvement since it was officially opened back in 2011.
The school has found favour among parents and prospective pupils in the province and beyond owing not only to its proximity to a main road - the Harare to Beitbridge highway -but to its remarkable record as a place where minds are nurtured.
With fresh-looking classroom blocks and other learning facilities, it is hard not to notice the school’s imposing presence in a place where no other educational investment of that magnitude can be found.
G and N school head, Blessed Chirove said the mission school had succeeded due to its uncompromising work ethic premised in the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church doctrine.
“It is upon that foundation that we have built and sustained a school which is famed not only for its excellent facilities but for its high grade academic culture too. We are guided by a strong desire to mould young minds and lay the foundation for highly rewarding careers for the children who pass through our hands.
“We have added state-of-the-art boarding facilities as part of our consistent commitment to the improvement of the learning environment. We welcome the first batch of children who will make use of these comfortable facilities,” said Chirove.
She said the school will soon upgrade to ‘A’ level so that pupils who complete their ‘O’ levels will be able continue with their education at a familiar environment.
Construction of ‘A’ level classroom blocks will be completed early next year while a spacious room has already been spared for use as a laboratory.
Outside of the classroom, pupils can enjoy overseas trips that the school regularly organises for research purposes and as a way of giving children first-hand exposure to the global village.
In Mwenezi district, G and N Mission Schools also run three primary schools while G and N Nursery School is located in Masvingo Urban.
