“It is commitment which enabled us to gather here not just to celebrate the achievements of our learners, but also to give due regard to our values and morals which these awards exemplify as enshrined in the updated curriculum.
“To those of you who have received awards of excellence, I say well done and to those who didn’t, I say you too can be leaders if you work hard.
“Due to unwavering support from the School Responsible Authority under the spiritual leadership of Mambo VaStebloni P, the government of Zimbabwe, business stakeholders, teachers and parents the school is excelling academically.

“As a result, learners are engaged in various practical learning areas and real-life assignments that will enable them to be self-sufficient. Since the school is located at the headquarters of the church, learners are also equipped with values and attributes that will inculcate the spirit of unhu/ umunhu/ ubuntu in these modern youth.
“This have gone a long way in reducing or totally eradicating drug abuse, promiscuous behaviour and many other anti-social behaviours that are affecting youths of today.
