. . . from 16 units to 10 As
Harrison Tauro C Corpus Christ High —
THERE is a popular adage that says sometimes you have to be cruel in order to be kind. The adage is reading perfectly well for me and my colleagues at Corpus Christ High School after Zimsec confirmed what we already knew, that we are just good at what we do.
During our four years at this school, we used to dislike the school’s strict disciplinary code and the way the teachers will zoom on each and every pupil.
For me in particular, 16 units at Grade 7 was not the type of results one could be proud of and I would sink my head whenever people started talking about results.
But four years later I can proudly display my achievements, fruits of a four year intensive program of hardwork and dedication.
When I reflect back in 2013 when I joined Corpus Christ High School in Kuwadzana 3, I do not regret the decision my parents made to enroll me there for my form one especially considering my Grade 7 results.
Many thought I was done with. Little did they know a shocker four years down the line was awaiting them. When I received the news that Zimsec Ordinary Level results were out, I did not worry much. It was time to reap what we sowed and we knew we had planted well.
I knew, together with my schoolmates, that we had passed; what with the guidance we had got from Corpus Christ. What we only wanted was a confirmation.
Having set for 13 subjects, I was happy to pass all of them with flying colours – 10 As and 3 Bs. Although I failed to get 13 straight As I am happy that the 3 Bs showed that I am human after all and now the challenge is to put in more work in Advanced Level to make sure this time I get distinctions in all my subjects.
I was also happy to be told that together with my colleagues in the sciences department we narrowly beat competition from the Commercials and Arts classes at our school after we got 97 percent pass rate. I also congratulate my Corpus Christ colleagues among them Darlington Mabaya who got 10 straight As and Roy Tsanyiwa who got 8 As and 1 C.
Special mention goes to the administrative team of Mr Marowa, Mr Ruzvidzo, Mr Zirabada, Mrs Dube and the man of God Pastor Mukanhairi.
We say to you, as we prepare to enroll for our Advanced Level we will this time take your strict adherence to the disciplinary code with a positive mind as we have now seen that this is a way of helping us instead of punishing us needlessly.
Bring on those long tutorials now, they helped us and I am sure they will help us in Advanced Level. We want to break the records set by the previous groups.
