    NESHURO - Mwenezi Government School recently held its speech and prize giving day and the highlights of the event were prizes for several students who were top performers at district, provincial and national level.
    The event was graced by Ishmael Chigaba who was the District Schools Inspector before his transfer to Masvingo regional offices. Cuthbert Chuma the school head highlighted the 'O'and 'A' level pass rates which have been constantly improving.
    Last year the school produced best 'A' level results in the whole district with a 100% pass rate. He also expressed the confidence that  'O' level results will rise to 50%  pass rate in the November 2016 examinations.
    Chuma noted that Mwenezi which has become a powerhouse in sports produced national athelets like Hardlife  Machira who made it to the COSSASA games held in Namibia this year.
    "The new education curriculum which places major focus on performing arts seeks to expose and develop talent at a tender age. In that vein the school has produced a Mwenezi Soccer team which is playing in division 2.
    "Our under 20 girls soccer, had commendable results after they made it through to the provincial semi-finals this year. Hardlife  Machira raised the national flag in Namibia after winning the 400m hurdles at national level", he added.
    Chuma however bemoaned the fact that the school which is one of the most well-known in the province does not have enough text books. He said it might be one of the reasons why 'O' level students are not doing well and the school is going to purchase some text books soon.
    Chigaba said the event was well organised and complimented the school  for ensuring that students were recognised for their good work in all categories.
    Some of the students who received prizes were:
    'O level 2015 results: Award Shumba 9As and 1C; Muzamani Chauke, 8As and 2Bs; Gill Moyo 8As, 1B and 1C.
    A level 2015 results: Tatenda Shoko 17 points; Tatenda Beta 14 points. In the sporting category was Hardlife  Machira who was awarded for being the national champion under 20 boys' hurdles.
