    GUTU –Utsinda Christian College, a private school located about 7km East of Mpandawana in Gutu held its first prize giving day on Saturday where Masvingo Provincial Education Director, Zedias Chitiga was the guest of honour.
    The event brought together several other dignitaries including Gutu Schools Inspector James Mahofa, Edmund Masanganise who is Chief Gutu, Gutu High school head Mirirai Mutanda and Headman VaTambire. 
    Speaking at the occasion, Professor Rangarirai Masanganise who is the director of the school said Utsinda Christian College's vision was to go international. He said the school should put Gutu District on the map.
    "Our vision is to be an internationally recognised school and to achieve this we shall work hard together. Students should be motivated and with hard work we can achieve all our goals," said Professor Masanganise.
    He profiled the school's modest but steady growth since 2016 when it was registered with the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education. He said the school had its first intake of seven students in the first term of January 2017 but this had steadily grown to 16 by the end of the year.
    The school which currently has nine teachers has Form One, Two, Three and Five classes.
    Speaking at the occasion, Chitiga said he was encouraged by the progress that the school was making and also commended Utsinda for embracing the new curricular which he said gave students exit skills or an exit profile.
    He encouraged the school to start income generating projects.
    "I am honoured to be the guest of honour at the inaugural speech and prize giving day at Utsinda. I encourage the school to establish income generating projects which are curriculum centred," said Chitiga.
    Addressing parents and students, the acting school head Zedias Marisa urged the community and parents to work together for the good of the school.
    "We all should play our part in building the school's legacy. For it to be internationally recognised, we need to work together," said Marisa.
    Marisa is however, going on study leave next year and he is going to be replaced by Daniel Machoko as the head.
    There were prizes galore  for the students and some of the outstanding students were Charmaine Charandura who walked away with 13 medals, Yvette Zirereza seven medals, Shumirai Mujongondi four and Blessed Mandaza with four medals.
    The best marketer award went to Tawanda Chikandwa who is a parent and Blessed Mandaza who is a judge in the Junior Parliament.
