A Pioneer A-level class of 2016 pupil of Eastview High School, Precious Bhiri, is now regarded as the school academic doyen, as she scored 15 points; History A, Sociology A and Literature in English A in the November 2016 Zimsec examinations.
The soft spoken Precious said she attributed her success to hardwork, discipline, dedicated teachers and faith in God.
“As the pioneer A-level crop of students at Eastview High School we were subjected to extraordinary challenges of setting high standards in all our school’s important facets that called for a focused, serious, disciplined and results based scholar. I am glad I have excelled and hope my fellow student successors should at best strive to break this record or at worst achieve a similar score,” said Precious.
Precious’ guardian Ms Madiro expressed joy and was pleasantly surprised by her niece’s achievement.
“This is a stunning performance and we are overjoyed as a family. Quite frankly, this is a precious moment for us to have a girl child from a humble background attaining such wonderful academic results”.
On what contributed to Precious’ impressive performance she said; “Well, Eastview High is undoubtedly behind this milestone achievement. When we registered her for Form Two, we were inspired by a newspaper story of a girl child, Mazvita Ndawana, who attained first position at national level in three Science subjects in the Cambridge O-level series at Eastview.
Apart from this, Precious is a disciplined and God loving child. Once she starts on a desired programme she diligently stays the course. We have always impressed on her that life is not about where you come from but invariably it’s about where you are going. Important decisions should be based on this philosophy,” quipped Ms Madiro.
The headmaster of the the school, Mr Cleopas Pedzisa said; “Precious’ excellent performance is a good omen that our newly established A-level division is set for a bright future. I am elated to witness my students’ academic success. I am relieved that all our effort was not in vain. My congratulations and good wishes go especially to Precious and her family, students and teachers of my school for a job well done. We hope our current crop of students shall emulate Precious’ excellent deeds.”
Other top notch performers include Ropafadzo Masora who attained Divinity B, Literature in English C and Sociology B, in November 2016 A-level Zimsec examinations and Ighodharo Osagiede who got Mathematics B, Business Studies B and Economics B in the Cambridge A-level November 2016 Examinations.
Eastview High School is no stranger to a league of schools that produce whiz kids. A couple of years ago another pioneer O-level pupil in the November Cambridge Examinations O-level series, Mazvita Ndawana clinched first position nationally in three science subjects; Mathematics, Geography and Biology.
She was rewarded with three invaluable certificates for attaining top positions in outstanding Cambridge learners in Zimbabwe, sponsored by the British International Examination council board in collaboration with the British council and the Joshua Nkomo scholarship fund.
Mazvita defied the commonly held societal belief that the girl child plays second fiddle to her male counterpart in matters pertaining to outstanding performance in science subjects at school.
