The school had been having headmasters coming and going due to different reasons some of which are linked to problems with the other admin members who are always eying the top post. The deputy head Mrs Tsingo who is popular in lacking professionalism when addressing meetings using "kupata" meaning foolish, when addressing teachers.The pupils at this good school are given a feeding scheme. The SDC further on agreed to feed the teachers also. Instead of being a family of teachers partaking of the food, the Animal farm story of animals better than other animals exist which Mrs Chimutimbira who is in charge of the feeding and the other admin members (4 senior teachers, deputy head and head) enjoy food cooked for them in a separate pot through out the whole week while the other members enjoy beans and vegetables(sometimes cooked without/with little cooking oil) cooked for the pupils and sometimes beef is offered.
Feeding the teachers that was meant to help is now a tool used to show that some are important while others are less import thus the school is back to the colonial era where whites were esteemed better than Blacks. One teacher who refused be named for security reasons outlined that it is bad. Jw further on stated that the awards which are given to teachers when the exam results are out intrinsically motivate them and they work harder to achieve good results. May the admin review the above mentioned issues for the good of implementing the curriculum as a family.
