…that when I started this project I would find myself back in contact with some of my former students. Nor did I realise just how much impact I had on the school at the time. Here below are a few quotes and/or comments I have had in recent days.
“You taught me Mathematics in Form 2 & 3 in 1989 and 1990…you inspired me, sir, I am following in your footsteps. I finished a Diploma in Science Education at Bindura University, specialising in Mathematics. Once I get my results I will be a fully qualified Maths teacher. You played a very important part in my life”
“Rarely do you find someone still making efforts not only to connect but to be pro-development about an area. We are the outcomes and outputs of a legacy you left since educational development is not a one-off event.”
Others remeber a borehole & water suply project I set up, or a library using one of the classroom store rooms where we had a local handyman put some shelves up for us.
It is very rewarding to be remembered for the work done so long ago, it seems I left a legacy without realising it! I will include other comments too in the future. Thank you to those who have been so encouraging towards my endeavours thus far.
