*Saturday Star* Staff profile Pakati Secondary school – 11 (and final!) Mrs Mwaashidzana, Textile Technology & Design Teacher

The elusive Mrs Mwaashidzana!

Born: Chimanimani

Trained: Mutare Teachers College 2008 – 2010

Specialised in Textile Technology & Design, but I can also teach Food and Nutrition

I am now 8 years into service at Pakati Secondary School. Pakati is a good school, but I did not have resources to use especially in my subject.

I would work in my garden during my spare time. My favourite sport is volleyball. I don’t have much to say about myself.


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 spent the last 13 years as a Civil Servant in Bradford. I married a Zimbabwean woman & we have 2 sons.
