MASVINGO – Victoria Junior was adjudged the best primary school in Masvingo Province in 2020 and will therefore be receiving education’s most esteemed prize; the Secretary’s Merit Award.
All roads lead to the school on June 28, 2023, when the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education Tumisang Thabela will hand over the award.
Vic Junior Deputy head, Oliver Machipisa confirmed the development in an interview with The Mirror adding that the handover of the award was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic that ravaged the world at that time.
Vic Junior is one of the biggest and most sought after primary schools in Masvingo with an enrolment of 1 637 pupils and 50 teachers.
“The Secretary’s Merit Award is a quality control and supervisory tool that recognizes schools of excellence as models that others should learn from,” said Machipisa.
Mutendi Primary scooped the prize in 2019.
