Pathway Private Primary School is a centre of educational excellence in the heart of Chitungwiza. We are proud of our 1:25 teacher pupil ratio. The institute was founded by Henry and Sabina Rungwave in 2009. It is run by a Board of Governors chaired by Mr Matthew Mbundire and a dedicated, professional management committee. This committee comprises of Ms C Gwekwete the Head, Mr C Mpandawana the Deputy Head Admin, Mrs H Chirisa the ECD and Infants Head of Department, Mrs T Kajokoto the Support Activities Head of Department and Ms J Kanyemba the Exams Officer.
Vision: To provide education which is compatible with 21st century needs.
Mission: We are commited to continuous satisfaction of the customers’ education needs whilst ensuring they realize their full potential.
The school is proudly occupying the number 1 spot in the Chitungwiza District following an astounding 100% pass rate for the ZIMSEC 2015 grade 7 exam.
The institute is also a registered Cambridge International School whose pupils sit for the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint.
We have classes from ECD, Primary and Forms 1 to 3.
We offer First World technology in the form of Brainchecker Technology. This is an advanced dermatoglyphics technique of revealing any individual’s genetic potential through fingerprints. A child’s potential career can be determined through this.
In today’s society, Computing and IT is fundamental in ensuring inclusive, personalised, enhanced and extended learning experiences. At Pathway, we believe that Computing / IT has an essential role in helping us to achieve these wider aims.
We have two dedicated Computer suites that are very reliable and up to date. We use a wide variety of software ranging from Authoring Systems, Desktop Publishing, Graphic Software, Reference Software, Tutorial Software, Educational Games, Math Problem Solving Software and Utility Software.
We constantly monitor the opportunities available to students regarding both hardware and software and this encompasses VLEs and free software for students when and where available. Our computer lessons are enhanced by the use of interactive screens which are installed in the lab. Much appreciation to Mr Gotamie, Mr Mavu and Mrs Jena in this department.

Pathway School Music Department
The Music department is a vibrant section that starts as classroom music lessons developing into a club that comprises of performing groups such as the Pathway School Choir, Pathway Marimba Band, Pathway Mbira Ensemble and Pathway Dance Group.
In line with the education curriculum, every child in the school takes music lessons which include theory of music, music appreciation, different instruments, oral skills, dancing, and music reading.
The department’s performing groups work under the guidance of Mr George Tamisai. The school choir, marimba band and the mbira ensemble participate in the National Institute of the Allied Arts every year and they perform really well. The Pathway Dance Group is the most decorated group as they travel and perform internationally with the recent trip to the Wales, UK for the Llangollen International Music Eisteddfod in 2014 topping the list. The group had pupils who also travelled to Uganda and Germany under the Chipawo organisation in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
