... top performing pupil attains 22 points
GWERU - Chaplin High has once again cemented its record as a school of academic excellence, with a clear 100 percent pass rate in the recently published ‘A’ level results.
The top performer in the latest ‘A’ level results attained 22 points in science subjects.
Speaking to TellZim News during an interview after the release of the results, Chaplin High head Rosemary Marufu said the school will continue working hard in its quest for better results.
"I am proud to be associated with such learners and teachers who have done us proud. It is because of their hard work that we managed to attain the 100 percent pass rate in most of our subjects.
"I am also glad that the school is producing remarkable students who have represented the school well on the world map. We have four pupils who scored high; 15, 19, 20 and 22 points in Arts, Sciences and Commercials. Previously, we used to dominate in Arts and Commercials but this time, sciences have joined the train,” said Marufu.
She said despite the Covid-19 pandemic, pupils and their teachers exhibited team spirit and hard work.
"We have stayed strong despite the challenges we have faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I am proud of both our learners and our teachers for this achievement in the face of adversity.
“We could not afford virtual learning platforms for all our learners as the facilities are too expensive for us and for the parents too. We encouraged self-reading and consultation among pupils," said Marufu.
She said that in the recently-introduced practical subjects, students also attained a 100 percent pass rate.
"We attained 100 percent in practical subjects for which our students sat for the first time, and these include crop sciences, sport management, technical graphics, physical education and mass displays.
“I urge every other class that will sit for their examination starting this year to follow suit. As Chaplin we are the best and we will continue to do everything with honour and integrity just in line with our motto," she said.
