Our academy doors may be closed due to lockdown measures and the global health pandemic, but our e-Learning Portal is wide open for teaching and learning. We aim to deliver effective learning experiences across all Forms. Online learning does not replicate onsite learning, but we are delivering high-quality instruction through a combination of videos, audio and guided notes. Students submit homework and assignments online and teachers reciprocate with marks and reports, also online. Parents can also monitor progress and communicate with the teachers via the e-Learning Portal.
We offer a comprehensive learning environment that is conducive to positive educational outcomes. Given our small class sizes, we are well positioned and equipped to give each student that personal attention that they might need. All our focus is on bringing out the best in each student. Their success is our success. The school is open to Form 1, all the way up to Form 6. It is a mixed school with 86 students in the 2020 academic year. We follow Zimsec and Cambridge curricula.
Our work requires experienced leadership and a teaching body that is suitably qualified to teach. Thankfully, we had a wonderful team of experts led by our distinguished Principal, Mr. Elias Kutadzaushe. The ration of students to teacher is 1:6,6 therefore meaning that forever teacher, we have 6,5 learners. This is one of the lowest ratios in private schooling. The teacher is not inundated and can as such provide that personal attention.
Our goal for 2020 is a 100% pass rate across all classes. This can be achieved, though the advent of the coronavirus does indeed have an impact on the education system at large. However, this will not cause us to rethink our targets. We will soldier on and work with the commitment required to overcome the obstacles ahead. This requires that we as a school, partner with all parents and guardians to ensure each student works hard both at home and at school. This smart partnership is more imperative now than ever before.
Target Passrate for 2020
Students are often rewarded for academic performance, achievements in sports and for good behaviour. Recognising these achievements boosts self esteem and confidence in students. Such recognition should also be acknowledged at home.
Attending class and being attentive to the teacher’s instructions is what learning is all about. The dynamics of education are such that the student, the school and the parents / guardians must work together to ensure good attendance and performance in class. After all, this is what we all want!
