JUST IN: ST IGNATIUS STUDENTS SCOOP AWARDS IN COLLEGE CAMBRIDGE DEBUT
Two outstanding St Ignatius College students have scooped Cambridge awards following stellar performances in the October-November 2021 examinations. The College introduced the Cambridge curriculum in 2020 with students taking maiden examinations last year.
Tendekai Bosha, scooped the Best candidate award in the whole of Zimbabwe in Design and Technology at AS level while Anesu Kafesu, scooped the High Achievement award in the world in Computer Science at A’ Level. Speaking at an event to honor the students held at the college today , deputy headmaster, Hatrick Chiwanda said the results are testament to the school’s premier academic prowess.
“The outstanding Cambridge awards program celebrates the success of learners taking Cambridge examinations in over 40 countries around the world. It is extremely rewarding to congratulate Cambridge learners and teachers that achieved tremendous success in the examination series. The results are a reflection of the enormous talent of students and teachers. The two recipients have shown that St Ignatius is a giant when it comes to education as we have produced some of the best performing students not only in Zimbabwe, but globally in our Cambridge debut,” he said.
Speaking at the same event, Kafesu urged students to follow their passion when choosing subjects to pursue at A’ Level.
“You have to enjoy your school work and make it not feel like work. This comes from picking the right subjects and loving what you do. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to chose the subjects that I really wanted at this school. I am also grateful to the teachers for their support which helped me do really well,” he said.
On his part, Bosha said the Jesuit proverbial AMDG (All for the greater glory of God) adage helped him to be the best in Zimbabwe. He rallied his fellow students to excel in their academic pursuits.
“All glory and honor belongs to the Lord, if it was not for him, I would not have achieved this feat. Praise be to God!. Any of you guys can do well with the right mindset, great learning environment and most qualified teachers that the school provides,” he said.
