Nonica Paidamoyo Mutsvangwa Foundation Donates To Haig Park Primary School
To make a legacy is to give birth to a change that breeds a special feel towards those that one meets and breeds an impact.
On the 24th of June this year representatives from the Nonica Paidamoyo Mutsvangwa foundation visited Haig Park Primary School where they made their first donation of ten Chess Board Games, as a way of celebrating and remembering the late Nonica Paidamoyo Mutsvangwa who played the game with excellence and passion.
According to Curtly Gwindi, the foundation spokesperson, Nonica Paidamoyo Mutsvangwa foundation was founded under unfortunate circumstances after the loss of Paidamoyo in a fatal car accident, so it was after her untimely death that enabled them to start the foundation so that her legacy lives on he went on to say this donation is the very first step or rather the birth of the organization.
“She was an avid Chess player who contributed immensely to the chess fraternity and we remember her legacy because of that, more reason to donate the boards to Haig Primary,” he mentioned
The Haig Park Primary principal, Mrs. Mbayo, remarked that they are so grateful to be among some of the schools to receive such donations from the organization. ” Such gestures hardly come by, chess is one of the biggest games in the school, and this is a confidence booster ahead of the upcoming schools’ Chess tournament that they will be participating in.”, she said.
Referring to the late Paidamoyo she said it is the norm that people don’t want to talk about the deceased but it is for the good things that she was known for that will make them continue talking and praising her even though she is no longer with us.
The school chess patron, Mrs. Mbayo, could not express much about how happy they were as a club and school pertaining to the donation they received from the organisation.
“This donation has made the job easier when it comes to training the game and it’s going to be enjoyable to the children playing now with these enough resources since they were left with only four chess boards out of 55 players, as the players are coming from the ECD up to grade seven classes,” she mentioned.
“The game helps the kids to be disciplined as it is played in total silence and requires maximum concentration,” she added.
The foundation is not going to end with Haig Park Primary, they will be moving to other schools because they want to make everyone feel special which is what the late Paidamoyo wanted to make everyone feel special. They are even planning to take it up a notch by introducing the Nonica Paidamoyo Chess tournament.
