It is late July in Zimbabwe, winter time. For Pakati and many other schools it means one thing….

Form 3 Commerce students

I had this photo sent from Pakati by the Head, Mr Mugove Chifaka, earlier today

It shows Form 3 students sitting their Mid-Year Exams, this one taken during the Commerce Exam.

Form 3 is for students who are in their penultimate year, sitting their ‘O’ levels/GCSE equivalent next year.

Let’s wish them all good luck for these exams and for next year too!


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.
