The team had a meeting with the Headmaster Mr. Muhomba and the Careers’ Counsellor Mrs. N. Ntuli where among other issues; they discussed tertiary education study opportunities for students in the US. Mrs Priester noted that Zimbabwe is the 8th largest African country sender of students to the US for tertiary education.  She stressed that it is critical that students use their education to meaningfully contribute to the development of the African continent and Zimbabwe specifically.  Mr. Muhomba concurred noting that the education should also empower students to be creators of jobs (entrepreneurs) rather than being jobseekers.

During a tour of the school grounds and facilities, the team had a chat with Mr. D. Nyoni the CBC SAT Exam coordinator as well as Mrs. M. Mathe the Deputy Headmistress who is the Director of Academics.
