An electrifying atmosphere engulfed the Cricket Club venue for the 2018 Hwange Colliery School of Nursing Graduation ceremony as 97 nurses graduated amid pomp and fanfare. All this happened in full view of hundreds of guests drawn from all quarters of the town, district, province and the nation at large.

The event was more special for the entire Colliery family and the hospital in particular as the last ceremony was held in 2012.

In his welcome remarks, Medical Services Manager and Acting Managing Director, Dr Charles Zinyemba highlighted that as HCCL, the programme of training of student nurses is part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives meant to benefit all the citizens of Zimbabwe.

“The nurses training initiative is meant to benefit all the people of our beautiful nation. Let me stress that this programme is not for Hwange Colliery Hospital as some might perceive, No it’s for the country at large.”

The Guest of Honour at the event, HCCL Board Chairperson, Ms Juliana Muskwe pledged continued Board support to the School of Nursing.

“The Board will ensure that the hierarchy of the organisation, and in particular the hospital team led by Doctor Charles Zinyemba, is given full support to ensure the School of Nursing continues to play this critical role of training nurses as this has had a positive impact in the nation’s health sector over the years,” read part of her speech.

The Minister of State for Provincial Affairs (Matabeleland North) Honourable Richard Moyo also commended the company for the various CSR initiatives.

“Besides this CSR initiative of training nurses, I would like to also thank HCCL for the good Corporate Social Responsibility work the organization is championing within the district and province, most recently the resuscitation of boreholes in Zvabomakuyu. The area has perennial challenges of access to clean water,” he said.

In part of her remarks, School of Nursing Principal Tutor Mrs Linda Laura Moyo highlighted the positive developments that have taken place at the institution over the years.

“In my last report five years ago, the school was in dire need of modernisation of teaching learning equipment.

I am pleased to report that we now have Wi-Fi in the school, four desktop computers with another five on the way, and five laptops for each member of the teaching team, two LCD projectors, a new skeleton, new models of the heart, the eye and ear and several wall charts. We are most grateful to our Medical Services Manager who has made acquisition of these items possible,” said Mrs Moyo
