Shongamiti High School head, Andrew Svovera expressed gladness at the improved performance, by the results demonstrated resilience and a commitment to excellence on the part of teachers and their pupils.
“Our pupils did not get enough time with their teachers because of the lock down but I am impressed by what they have produced. Twenty points by a pupil at a rural school like us is not something to take for granted. We are really proud of the pupils and teachers,” said Svovera
He said the pupils had set a high bar and should maintain and improve the standard in order to put the school on the map.
