Complement Message: In Dr. Chawira’s assembly yesterday, we celebrated World Compliment Day. This was the takeaway from his message;

This day the College appreciates you for exceptional uniqueness designed for a good purpose. Psalm 139:14. 

Keep complimenting because your words may be the only pillars of strength that someone is pulling themselves up to stand again.  

Benefits of compliments:

1. Build relationships 

2. Improve communication 

3. Motivate people 

4. Boosting self- esteem and self-confidence. 

Tour Updates: Rugby tour is fast approaching, we encourage parents to settle any outstanding fees. A reminder to the parents of all those in the touring team of tonight’s virtual meeting – 5:30pm. 

We are also leading up to the cricket and hockey tours, more details to follow.
