    CHIKOMBA – CBZ Holdings limited chief executive officer Never Nyemudzo has donated 10 computers to Anglican Church-run Daramombe High at the school's speech and prize giving day held on Saturday last week.
    Nyemudzo who was the guest of honor at the function said that the computers were meant to support students in their studies. He said the Bank has a passion to see high quality education at the school.
    He went on to say that Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) have taken a centre stage at financial institutions, schools, home and at churches and therefore it is crucial to embrace the maximum use of them in schools.
    He added that in the education sector, the emergence and acceptance of ICTs have enhanced the advancement of higher quality education and therefore must be integrated in the curriculum.
    The emergence of ICTs has several advantages in that they enhance lower delivery costs, raises the level of education, enhances easy and fast teaching and learning processes and allows students to sample past examination papers, he said.
    He said CBZ feels obliged to partner those already embracing ICTs at schools. The Bank has introduced the Student Smart Cash Account to be used by scholars for paying school fees and parents can deposit money in their children's accounts.
    He urged parents to give their children space to choose the careers they want to pursue in life so that their choices become a reality.
    Students who took first and second position in individual subjects received textbooks whilst best teachers received shields and food hampers.
    Caroline Rukwava, a form 2 pupil received the overall best student award after she obtained several prizes at the event. She received a laptop from CBZ.
    The event was held under the theme "ICT learning and teaching for total education".
    Nyemudzo handed over the 10 computers to the school's responsible authority Reverend Fransis Mudzingwa.
    The function was also attended by the District Schools' Inspector, Emmanuel Kwenda who congratulated the school for attaining high pass rates.
    He warned students against early marriages as they may affect their future.
    Speaking at the function, the school head Kennedy Manzonza said by next year they want to consider and take ICTs as the only option and textbooks will be a second option at the school. He said in 2015 the school achieved a 92.5% pass rate  at 'O' level and 86% at 'A' level.
