Pakati – latest news…

The author has had some interesting news this week… a former student writes:

“I was speaking to the Head about how the computers arrived, how the sports shirts came to be there….”

“He was also talking about a new development – possible introduction of Adult IT classes for the community. I take this as a new and noble idea. It will help our elders to get the opportunity to learn about computer technology…”

“The discussions went on to the internet…the Head says it will be organised soon with help from the SDC (School Development Committee).”

Regarding the surprise promised on the previous blog post….there are a couple of things being discussed with several people. Not sure how they will be recieved, but you cant keep everyone happy, can you? The pic below is just a small hint of something…..


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.
