Challenges Faced Over the Years in Running of the School
Rendered Zimbabwe dollar useless led to depletion of essential resources, textbooks, stationery, sports equipment, no maintenance work and closure of bank accounts. Made collection of revenue (fees & levies) meaningless. Introduced culture of not servicing debts.
Introduction of multiple currencies is a blessing to those with access to forex and a nightmare to those without, servicing of debts (fees/levies) still a big headache. Provision of essentials resources, textbooks still not affordable.
Unwarranted Political Utterances
(Fees and levies) Have made collection of fees and levies a very difficult task. The spirit of sacrifice by parents/guardians appears to have melted away.
