Gumbonzvanda High School’s dreamof establishing a boarding school received a big boost after Wedza South Zanu PF candidate Cde Tino Machakaire teamed up with the school’s development ambassador Dr Killer Zivhu for the construction of a boys’ hostel.
Cde Machakaire has already donated 250 bags of cement and other building materials towards the construction of the boys’ hostel.
Dr Zivhu who donated 400 bags of cement commended the school authorities and the local community for having worked tirelessly to ensure the dream of having a boarding at the school is realised and appealed to other stakeholders to support the vision.
The school, which started with bush boarding facilities and some students staying at a local shopping centre has moved towards establishing a full boarding school after having completed the construction of a girls’ hostel and ablution facilities for boys who are currently using a community hall as a hostel.
The school, which has an enrollment of 1 100 pupils of which 250 of them are boarders, has done well in both academics and sport.
Gumbonzvanda High School had an A’ level pass rate of 95 percent and were crowned NASH under 20 national soccer champions in 2015 among other honours.
