Chisipite Senior School in Harare has been forced to issue an apology after a video of female students singing obscenities went viral on social media. In the video, six girls can be heard singing a vulgar song, made popular by Dynamos fans, which celebrates unprotected sex.
The headmistress Lorraine Hill said “Thank you to all of those who have let us know about the appalling video that some of our L6 pupils made. The girls’ parents have been notified and share our disappointment in the pupils’ behaviour. The girls have been punished and regret their actions.
“This was not a war cry or in any way sanctioned by the school but an isolated incident involving 6 pupils. This is not an accurate reflection of our school culture and community, a sentiment shared by our parents, alumni and pupils. We thank you for your support of Chisipite,” Mrs Hill added.
Chisipite Senior School is an independent, day and boarding school for girls in Harare. It has 75+ academic staff and 750 girls are enrolled. Of that number 150 girls are boarders. The school opened in 1954 to cater for students who had finished their primary education at Chisipite Junior School.
