Anderson Adventist Primary boarding facilities offer learners outside of Gweru the opportunity to attend the school while providing a positive platform for development through the early childhood years within a secure and structured environment. The facility houses both boys and girls in their respective dorms.
The administration and efficient running of a boarding inevitably depends on the close co-operation between the school, parents and boarding students.
The tender care for the learners at this age is key. The boarding facility has two deans, One for the boys and a Matron for the girls. The deans play the role of the parent in every regard during the stay of the learner at Anderson. The dean’s residence is housed within the dormitory to keep a closer monitoring of the learners. The parental role of grooming the spiritual, social, physical appearance and state is their main priority. The deans are qualified personnel with children at heart, their role to build character is the corner stone of the boarding facility, their aim is to groom a loving and a loveable Christian that will respect God and fellow mankind.
The girls’ matron acts in the office of the school nurse. She is a qualified practitioner in that regard with many years of service in health services. The health of learners is monitored and maintained. Specific health conditions are closely monitored and maintained as per requirement of the learner. In the event of ill health or minor injury of any learner, the school nurse will make the required assessment and prescribe the necessary medication. The common prescription drugs are available in the nurse’s office and will be administered accordingly. In the event of a health emergency the health care procedure will be administered and the parent will be notified See the link on health care for more information.
