The two construction projects will run concurrently.
The vision was mooted way back in September 1997 at the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of ZRP High School, where Cde, Dr Chihuri declared that the work of constructing the school will not be complete until a chapel was constructed.Back then, he had mandated the late School Board Chairperson, Dr Paul Tangi Mhova Mkondo to ensure that the construction of the chapel remained an active agenda on board meetings.

Pupils at ZRP High School in Harare have a reason to cheer. Their school celebrated 10 years of excellent existence. The High School is one institution of elementary learning that grows from strength to strength and no wonder why its pupils have permanent smiles implanted on their faces.
They had one more reason to smile for as they cheered their band extolling the virtues of a green country, on the day the school commemorated this year’s National Tree Planting Day. It was three weeks early, but by the time the national day itself arrived on December 6th, the children were well into their Christmas holiday; so they had to mark the day early before the schools closed. It was on this day that the school opened its orchard just behind the dining hall, and it was here that various fruit trees like mulberry, orange and the national tree for this year – Mukweshangoma – were planted.
