Welcome to Chisipite Senior School
Chisipite Senior School opened its doors in 1954 to cater for the students leaving the Junior School which was founded as a farm school in 1929. With 2 members of staff and 48 girls, Chisipite Senior School became the first inter-denominational private girls' secondary school in Central Africa. It is now one of the premier, multicultural girls' schools in the country.
Monash University Competition Winners
Monash University hosted a STEM based competition earlier this year. It was open to science students from schools around Harare wherein the pupils had to design robots to address local needs or problems. The winners this year were from Chisipite, St. John's and Hellenic, and the prizes won included ipad pros, laptops and ipads, which were presented by the Australian ambassador Suzanne MacCourt. Congratulations go to Gracious Chitenderu and Ruramai Zimuto for their inventive ideas which won them awards at this event.

What a wonderfully entertaining, enlighting and engaging evening was had at the Combined Schools Concert on the 15th of September. A very big congratulations to Mrs Di Wright and Mrs Nicola Seager for their hard work and dedication, which resulted in this excellent event.

Thank you also to our sponsors, our parents, and to you, the audience, for your ongoing support of Combined Schools.
How important it is for us to remember the theme of conservation which was so clearly and beautifully presented throughout the evening.
