Junior Achievement Zimbabwe

A big thank you goes out to the College and our patron Mr Mandiki for providing us with the opportunity to be part of Junior Achievement Zimbabwe and organising the meeting with Goldridge College. To say the least, it was mind blowing, motivational and very engaging.

The theme set for 2018 being, “Take the future by storm”. Different speakers and representatives of Junior Achievement Zimbabwe highlighted different key aspects of the JA vision and provided much needed advice as well as giving us all a few pointers to help us prepare for the vigorous 16 week programme as well as the competition that is fast approaching. At provincial level, 18 schools(companies) will compete and three will proceed to compete with other schools in Zimbabwe, with one who will then be chosen to represent Zimbabwe in Ghana this year in December.

From team building exercises to presentations and well-planned games testing our ability to think outside of the box, we quickly learnt that applying that which we have been taught is no ‘simple task’. Running a business requires good leadership as well as team work.

As students representing Midlands Christian College we believe the seminar was a success as well as an important learning curve and hope to be able to rise up to the challenge and above all, take the future by storm!
