Murray MacDougall School Celebrates 50 Years

Celebrating 50 yearsMurray MacDougall School in Triangle celebrated it's 50 year anniversary this past Saturday (19th November 2011) with a very extravagant evening. Lana Pinto and her team transformed the school and nearby sports field into a spectacular venue.

The entertainment commenced with the school Marimba Band and the Choir giving exceptional performances. These were followed by a wonderful poem written by the current Head Girl.

The headmaster, Mr A Gibson, welcomed the various guests, parents and past pupils with a brief history of the school:

  • The school opened in 1961 with fourteen children. It was initially housed in MacDougall's old workshop/wagon shed.
  • With fifty-one children, the school moved to a newly built house on Stanley Cooke Road in 1962.
  • By the third term of 1962, the school moved to it's current location. These were built by Triangle Limited and staffed by the government.
  • In 1978 the company decided to make the school private.
  • Mr Gibson joined the new private school In 1979.
  • Today there are 263 children at Murray MacDougall School.

Marjorie, who had been Head Girl at the school 25 years previously, shared a few of her memories and gave a toast to the school. The official proceedings were closed with a vote of thanks by Mrs M Marisa. However, with plenty of refreshments and a live band, the celebration went on well into the early hours.

The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of OZHippo Valley Estates Primary School in Chiredzi presented it's annual end of year play The Wizard of Oz to a packed audience this last Friday evening, (28th October 2011). Growing on the successes of previous productions, the show was a huge hit and a highly enjoyable evening. The wonderful colour coordinated costumes helped with the flow of the story immensely.

The fun commenced with a number of singing performances by Grades 0 to 4, entitled, 'All the Colours of the Rainbow' and included those songs we all learnt at school from Baa Baa Black Sheep (Grade 0) to Lily the Pink (Grade 4).

The Wizard of Oz was performed by Grades 5 to 7 and eloquently narrated by the colours Red (Tinopi Gorejena), Orange (Rumwisai Chiwasa), Purple (Tadiwanashe Kadziyanyike), Blue (Takunda Kurakaraka), Green (Tracy Simonsen) and Yellow (Zanele Siziba).

A violent storm very dramatically sweeps away Dorothy (Kudzai Chigerwe), Toto (Gabriel Mugari) and their entire house. Flying right across the stage, the house came crashing down in the land of Oz and right on top of the Wicked Witch of the East. The Munchkins and Glinda (Vimbai Mahungana) present Dorothy with the late witch's ruby slippers and set her on the yellow brick road towards the Emerald City.

It was agreed that the ZNCC will operate within the existing structures of the Chiredzi Business Forum. This means members of the Chiredzi Business Forum will also be members of the ZNCC.

Unfortunately, if you dont include an e-mail address in your EWAY Chiredzi Business Directory listing you will miss out on these opportunities. It's not cost effective for us to phone or visit your premises every time there is a query.

E-mail is the cheapest, easiest and most reliable method of making contact. That is why we have structured the Business Listing with an email link so people anywhere in the world can get in touch with you quickly and easily. The entire world is now a global market place.

Customers are always searching the internet for information, services and products such as yours. The question to ask yourself is, "if I am serious about business, why don't I have a web presence?" Lack of a computer is no longer a valid excuse. Many people are now able to access the internet from their phones in addition to the existing internet cafes.
