Dominican Convent High School, an all-girls elite day school has expelled eight Form Six students for breaching the school’s drug policy.
In a statement, the school headmistress Sister Kudzai Mutsure said the students breached the school drug policy whilst at a leadership camp in Nyanga last week.
“I write on a sad note to notify you that the 8 girls we had put on suspension pending Investigations on an incident that took place at the 2023 U6 leadership camp which was held in Nyanga from the 12th to the 15th of January, have been excluded from the school with immediate effect. The disciplinary committee exercised all principles of procedural fairness and found the girls guilty of violating the school drug policy,” said Sister Mutsure
She said investigations are ongoing to weed out more culprits and urged parents to be more vigilant and be aware of their children’s activities.
“Investigations are still ongoing and we will not hesitate to weed out any more culprits to sanitise the school space.
“I appeal to parents to be more vigilant and active by refining their parenting skills and being aware of their children’s activities as our investigations show that the pervasive behaviour started at home,” she said
