A former student writes…

From Ruth Chidora, to me on facebook…

I was a student at Pakati since 2002-05, I gained more experience through hard working of my teachers. There are four teachers that I will never forget, to mention them are Mr Katonha my science teacher, Mr Mushaninga my history teacher, Mr Kusotera my maths teacher and Mrs Katonha my Shona teacher, she was very strict with girls. These teachers taught me if you want to achieve in your life you should work hard. At our school, our stream was both good in sports and in classes. l luv my school because to be what I am today is from that school. Our teachers inspired us to study hard to be a better looking in future. My Shona teacher always said to me (Chidora pauchapedza form yako panenge pasisina when l grow up l want to be teacher or doctor and etc coz unenge wafoira).
