CENTRAL Province Minister Sydney Mushanga has hailed the outstanding performance of Kapiri Girls National Technical School after it emerged top of the best performers in the 2017 Grades Nine and 12 examination results.
The Government school was opened only five years ago but has consistently been in the group of top performers in Examination Council of Zambia (ECZ) examinations at both Grade Nine and 12.
The school has produced a 100 percent pass rate in two consecutive years since 2016 and was this year named the top performer in the ECZ exams at both secondary school grades.
Speaking at an award presentation ceremony for teachers at the school, Mr Mushanga said the pupils at Kapiri Girls Tech should be emulated by other schools across the country.
“The school has only been in existence for five years now but it is already topping the academic chart in the country due to the excellent results that it has exhibited in the past four years,” Mr Mushanga said.
“This is an occasion of joy for all as we have come together to celebrate this auspicious occasion and achievement.”
He said he was glad to note that the majority of the merit awards were in mathematics, biology, English Language and Civic Education.
Mr Mushanga said it was not easy for many Government schools to attain a 100 per cent performance and the excellence achieved by Kapiri Girls National Technical School must be properly recognised and appreciated.
Provincial Education Officer Jennipher Banda commended the teachers at the institution for setting high standards of performance for themselves and their pupils which had helped the school to out-do even the more established and esteemed ones.
“These teachers that have come here have transformed this school by setting, exceptional standards; and they are doing this even when they don’t  have staff establishment. The results are beating even old national schools,” she said.
Ms Banda said education was the most important weapon in addressing the challenges in communities and urged the pupils to always aim high.
School head Hildah Chilufya appealed to Government to offer bursaries to the best performers at the school including Besila Mabuku who scored the highest marks in the country at Grade Nine level.
