Dear Parents and Guardians,

As indicated earlier this week, there’ll be a meeting to discuss budgets for Term 1 2019 on Thursday 7 March at 6:30pm in the school hall and on Friday 8 March at 6:30pm in the Gateway High School hall. 

Please make every effort to attend or to be represented as we confirm the way forward for the school. 

Congratulations:

A huge congratulations to Elizabeth Msipa and Wadiwanashe Musonza who, through the National Athletics Association of Zimbabwe, will be attending the South Africa Champs. This is part of preparations for Africa Youth and Juniors Competitions which will be held in Cote d’Ivoire in April. Elizabeth Msipa has already qualified for this team, and it is our hope that based on his performance next week, Wadiwanashe can be confirmed into the team. We are very proud of them and wish them all of the best as they travel.
