CHIREDZI-The deputy head at Chiredzi Government Primary School, Monalisa Marindo Zvenyika (65), has retired.
She has been a deputy at the school since 1995 and an educationist for 44 years since 1979.
Her farewell party was held at the school on May 26, 2023, the same day she turned 65.
Zvenyika told The Mirror that she is proud of her contributions to the school.
“I worked as acting head and deputy at the school. When I joined Chiredzi Government Primary School, it was not fenced and fencing the school is one of the notable achievements.

“I also facilitated the construction of two classroom blocks by Plan International and the drilling of a borehole at the school.
I facilitated the construction of the Early Childhood Development (ECD) block,” said Zvenyika.
She was born in 1958 and began her teaching career in 1979 at Mafura Primary School after completing her course at Bondolfi Teachers College.
Zvenyika later moved to Harare, where she joined Emerald Hill Primary School for The Deaf from 1982 until 1984.
In 1985, she joined Nyati Primary School at Buffalo range, Chiredzi until 1988, when she moved to Kyle Primary School in Triangle. She was then promoted to become deputy head in 1993.

She left Kyle in 1995 and joined Chiredzi Government Primary School in 1995.
“It was not an easy road and it required one to be professional, honest, hardworking and sacrificial in order to yield good results,” said Zvenyika.
During her 28 years at the school, Zvenyika worked with at least 5 headmasters, among them the District Schools Inspector (DSI), Petronella Nyangwe.

Nyangwe described her as a dedicated and hardworking educationist who was devoted to her duties.
“From the time I worked with Zvenyika I have known her as a hardworking and dedicated person who was devoted to her duties, she was someone whom you could count on and would find her at work,” said Nyangwe.
