    Gokomere High tops CASA choir competitions

    •    Masvingo Diocese dominates competition


    MASVINGO - Gokomere College proved to be a powerhouse when it came first in the tightly contested Catholic Secondary Schools Association (CASA) national choir competitions held at the school last Saturday.
    The competition was dominated by Masvingo Diocese which snatched the first and second position and then went on to have three schools in the first five with Mukaro High in second place and Silveira High in fourth.
    The diocese further proved its dominance of the competition when it ensured that it had four schools in the first 10 with St Anthony coming up at position 8.
    Some 27 schools from the country’s seven out of eight dioceses participated in the competitions.
    Gweru Diocese was the second most dominant after Masvingo also with four schools in the top 10. It had Shungu High at number 3, Loreto number 4, Serima number 6 and Regina Mondi at number 7.
    Harare had two schools in the top 10 with Kutama High at number 9 and Visitation at number 10.
    Masvingo Bishop, Sekuru Dixon Michael Bhasera and Gokwe Diocese Bishop Sekuru Rudolf Nyandoro attended the competitions. A few schools failed to turn up because of the harsh economic times.
    Masvingo Diocese and Education secretary, Fr. Walter Nyatsanza, who spoke at the occasion said the diocese was honoured to host the awards.
    “The Holy Mass that began the day set the right spirit for the competitions and everyone enjoyed the wonderful voices of our students. We are also appreciative of the Provincial Education Director, Zedias Chitiga who sent a delegation to support the event and to welcome all schools to the province,” said Rev Nyatsanza.
    He praised Masvingo Diocese for a wonderful performance
    Sekuru Nyandaro said the choirs did not just compete but they shared, encouraged one another and even uplifted the spirit of evangelization through singing.
    Last year the competitions were cancelled due to cholera.
    The Priest-in-Charge, Fr Vincent Muzenda was on cloud nine as Gokomere came first. He promised his choir a trip of a lifetime to a yet to be announce destination.
    Thomas Chimbangu from Mukaro was elated with his team’s performance.
