Andrew Cowling, Principal of Chengelo School presented the awards to the successful students at a special assembly that was held this morning at Chengelo School. The Mkushi District Education Standards Officer, Eness Shooba and Chengelo Trustees officiated at this ceremony.

 

Presenting the awards, Mr Cowling commended the students for performing exceptionally well nationally and globally. He said that the awards demonstrated the students’ hardwork and dedication to succeed academically and the commitment of their teachers.

 

He commented, “These five students this morning did not accept being ordinary –they aimed for exceptional. They set their heights high and worked hard for their goals.  This morning we celebrate what is possible.  You truly excel in life when you determine to always do your best –you create a mindset. You say to yourself exceptional must be my ordinary.”

 

Cambridge programmes and qualifications are taken by learners in more than 10,000 schools in over 170 countries and are recognised by universities and employers worldwide. Cambridge Top in the World awards recognise the success of learners who have achieved the highest standard mark in a single subject.

Ms Eness Shooba remarked, “It is extremely rewarding to congratulate the students and teachers of Chengelo School who have worked so hard to achieve tremendous success in Cambridge examinations. These results are a reflection of the enormous talent in Zambia, not only among students but also within the teaching profession.”

In 2014, Julu Nathanael Howard Lund, a lower Sixth-Form student at the time, received the Top in the World award for a 100% perfect score in Mathematics. He has now achieved a Top in the World award for the best results in Computing and credits his success to Chengelo School.

Julu exclaimed, I’m utterly gob-smacked to have come Top in the World again. I’ve always loved Mathematics and enjoyed Computing but never thought I was good enough in them to do as well as I have. The credit should really be given to the learning environment that Chengelo provided and particularly to my classmates who were always challenging me and giving me  opportunities to grow. I hope that Chengelo continues to be a place of spiritual, physical and educational support for many years to come.”

  2. Congratulations to These 5 Pupils and Chengelo School. I still cherish my Cambridge Overseas Division One School Certificate obtained in December 1964 Cambridge Syndicate Overseas School Certificate. Exam Riggers were not YET BORN ! Exam Papers came from Cambridge and Manuscripts were sent and marked THERE.
