This will enable us to acquire an international status as a Microsoft Certified Testing centre, a development which is going to enrich our students, parents and the surrounding community” added Mr Oswald.
Speaking to the school’s ICT Teacher, Mrs Chipadza, she was delighted by the school’s continuous efforts to capacitate its students with critical digital skills such as IC3 Digital Literacy, International Computer Drivers License (ICDL) and now a wide range of Microsoft certifications.
