    Speaking during the official launch, Dr Tizora hailed Dewure for moving with the times. He said that as an old giant, Dewure, one of the oldest boarding schools in the country has been investing a lot in upgrading  its facilties. He said the renovations that happened at Dewure must happen in other schools.
    "Today, seeing these science labs, I am glad to say that Dewure High will never be relegated to the class of fallen giants, the school continues to build on past successes, and uses that as a ladder to step into the future," said Tizora.
    Tizora donated an alarm in the ICT laboratory and also promised that he will provide a cooling system in the science laboratories.
    The distinguished guests at the ceremony were Gutu District Schools Inspector James Mahofa, Chief Munyaradzi and Reverend Zebedee Togarepi who is the responsible authority for Mashoko Schools.

    Reverend Togara said now that there were computers for everyone in the school, students should stop focusing on pornographic material and concentrate on their school work in order to achieve good academic results.
    "I am humbled by the support that we are getting from our stakeholders. It was like a joke when Mr Matsa asked me on what he could donate to the school. I was overcome with joy when he said that he would donate 40 computers. As a school we feel that our hard work is now being rewarded," said Mahwehwe.
    Priscilla Machaka, a science student said she was elated by the developments in the school as pupils were now learning from a very conducive environment.
