The national pass rate was 21% hence our school should be compared against that background.
At District level, Queen Elizabeth snatched first position while at Harare Provincial Merit Awards we received a second prize in the 101 to 200 candidature category.  Out of the 86 Harare schools, we were pegged at position 4.  You may agree with me, that is not mean achievement.  Zimpapers recognized this achievement by giving us an award as well as free three months Herald, Sunday Mail and Kwayedza papers.

The national ‘A’ level pass rate was 87%.  At both District and Provincial levels, the school toppled all schools in Harare.  What is more fascinating is that it was not just a mere hundred percent pass rate but it was qualitative material.  Each year our students qualify for Medicine and Law enrolment at the local University.  It is needless to talk about University recruitment in other countries.  Again, that kind of achievement cannot be underestimated.

The school had a general challenge of understaffing in the Science Dept.  ‘A’ level Physics and Biology teachers could not easily be found and that adversely affected our Science Department.  I am grateful the province recently gave us appropriate personnel this term.


Sport, Arts and Culture Report
Debate Club

Public Speaking
At District level, our Mitchelle Mutongwizo came third in the Junior Category while Sandile Gumede snatched second position in the Senior Category.  The latter represented the district at provincial level and hoisted the school’s flag high.  Because of the firm foundation given by the English Department, the school has a Junior Parliamentarian: Mitchelle Mutongwizo, an MP for Harare Central.

We also have Honourable Junior Councillors, Kamanda Charlotte and Ruvarashe Marimo – Project Co-ordinator.  Through their active participation, the school was given five bins by City of Harare, car plastic refuse bags and literature for the library.

Quiz Club
The team participated in the Tynwald Quiz Show on 28 June 2013 and obtained prizes for various subjects, Tag of War, Dance and Public Speaking.  On 18 September 2013 we won in the 25 – 25 Knowledge Check Point Show conducted by ZBC.  Daisy Tsikinye and Ruvarashe Marimo were outstanding.  ZBC promised to award a Laptop to the school in recognition of the school’s outstanding performance.

Literary Evening
Holding a Literary Evening has become a ritual in the school.  We experienced the best show ever on 28 June 2013.  The Upper Sixes showcased their talents in various genies of art.  The function was well supported by parents and school staff.  Parents who missed that function may purchase DVDs on that function and watch for themselves.

Basketball
The school is still a strong hold in this discipline.  Our Francisca Sekete still plays in the national team.  She also played for National Youth Games in Bulawayo as a Harare Pillar.

Badminton
The school is grateful to its performance.  We were awarded second position prize at Harare Provincial Merit Award Ceremony, having thrashed all other schools except one.


Korfball
There was an international Korfball competition held recently where South Africa, Zambia and Namibia participated.  Most of our students represented the Zimbabwean team and finally got silver medals.

Athletics
There was a remarkable improvement from that of yester-year.  Two of our ladies, Mupfapairi Naume Under 18 and Mukera Pamela Under 16 qualified for district competitions.  They encountered stiff competition later and paved way for other athletes.

Discipline
Generally, our ladies are renouned for acceptable behaviour in the school and outside.  We are pleased about that.  Our appeal to you parents is for you to instill and inculcate positive attributes to our dear children so that they would be able to fit in any community when they complete their formal education.  We are doing our best as a school and we sincerely request your support in this regard.

Drum Majorettes
One cannot resist watching them as they perform.  They have been invited to several functions and we marvel as they expose their talents.  We salute them.

Coming Soon.
