Old Students Get Together to
Form Association: GOSA
FINALLY someone has spoken and taken the initiative. Zimbabwe is
currently faced with hardship affecting individuals, families,
companies and surely organsiations and institutes. For Secondary and
High School education, Zimbabwe's Highest secondary school is no
exception to this. The spiralling prices of essentials that once
used to be footed by the cash strapped government in conjunction
with the now almost defunct SDA (School Development Association)
means Goromonzi High is not the school that it once used to be.
Deteriorating facilities, diet, lack of reading and writing material
etc are seeing the standards fall.
With this view, former students have taken it upon themselves
to begin an Old Students Association. GOSA (Goromonzi Old
Students Association) as it has always been known is back.
An email chain has been in circulation and it appears that over 100
former students have already received this email chain and are
showing interest in this project.
From initial interpretation it appears that the driving forces
behind this email chain are DENNIS MAGAYA AND STANLEY CHIMBODZA, who
started off just trying to link up as old friends. Interesting to
note that one of Goromonzi High Schools most notable HEADBOYS,
LAWRENCE NYENGERAI has shown interest in this project as well.
Notably Dennis Magaya appears to be spearheading things and has
identified that ex students are resident throughout the world and
has called for people to organise efforts in the areas that they are
in. Identified locations are Zimbabwe, South Africa, UK, USA and
One former student Cosmas Chataika has shown his interest saying
we should put a trust fund to be managed by some reputable firms.
On the mailing list there are some guys working for audit firms
like kpmg. You want this project to have integrity because you
dont want people to have doubts as to whether their monies will be
put to good use."
What probably remains is for
meetings to be held where a Chairperson will be elected together
with a committee, otherwise such a wonderful idea will come to
