Teacher at Pakati since 2010

I enjoy life at Pakati Secondary School because it is simple. Expenses associated with life in urban areas, for example water bills and rent, are minimal at our school. There is plenty of land for the teachers to carry out subsistence farming and this helps us a lot. Life was made even better in 2018 when electricity was connected to the school. Furthermore, since our school is in the countryside, we enjoy seeing some nature, for example some mountains, rivers and even snakes, though they can be dangerous.


My name is Chris Walker, and between January 1989 and September 1991 I worked, through VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas), at Pakati Secondary School in Murehwa South district in Zimbabwe. I was a Maths teacher for 2 years, the Acting Head for the last 8 months there. I have also taught in Botswana & the UK, had 4 years working for VSO, and have been a Civil Servant in Bradford since 2005.
