Educational Tour (Heroes Acre)

The Grade Ones in a bid to embrace the Updated Curriculum on the topic Family and Heritage went on an Educational tour to the National Heroes Acre. Facilitation was done and brief history as to when, who, why and how it was built as well as the Heroes and Heroines that are buried there.

The Tomb of the unknown soldiers. The learners were highly delighted by the piece of art as well as the nation’s love in remembrance of those that fought and having name unknown.

 

 

Now we get to meet untie Peggy who gave an insightful history and background of the National Heroes Acre of Zimbabwe. She explained to us the names of those that were involved in the building of the shrine, the period that they took, why it was built and also the way it is maintained and secured. This helped the learners the most as they were so curious to know why people are buried there instead of kumusha and other cemeteries .

In the interest of the learner, we also looked at the Court of Arms with help of aunt Peggy who was well pleased with the responses she got from the learners who already had an insight on what it was and the meanings of the symbols.

 

We now go up the ladder as we reach towards the tower of liberty with aunt Peggy and the teachers

The tower of liberty. Up there you can get the view of the city in any angle.
