The joy of growth


By Samuel Malasa Banda

 At times, it is hard to appreciate the grace and love of God when all things seem to be in place. When one’s dreams and visions seem to fall in place, many forget the tough rides that were taken and God’s grace and intervention.

Hence, months since the inception of our Cornerstone Christian High School, we are appreciating God’s provision towards the running of the institution.

In its two years of operation, our school has set a model for education in Salima district: a beautiful school campus, well-behaved students, inspiring teachers, daily Bible devotions and many other admirable aspects that make CCHS outstanding.

What’s so special about our high school?


Many institutions are providing education in Salima district, but our school is taking the top spot because of its holistic approach to education.  As the school  Principal Chikondi Elvis Chabakha points out:

“It is a great to be a part of movement that is flowing in the blessings of God.  For example just the ability to see transformation in the lives of a few of our students is always inspiring.  I believe, education should always be holistic.”

Form two (10th grade) student Vellina Kamtsokwe says she loves Cornerstone because of its Christian stand:

“I underwent the Cornerstone After-school program when I was in primary school, and when I heard that Cornerstone has opened a secondary school, I knew that the quality education and Christian standards that were at the ASP would also be found at CCHS, so I did not hesitate to enroll as a student”, says Vellina, “and true to my thoughts, “CCHS has helped me build my identity and purpose in Christ”.

Come September 2018, our high school will be enrolling its third cohort of students. This is great news as it means preaching the love of Christ and providing better education to an increased number of youths.

But we have a challenge…

Our school needs a Science laboratory and library.  Our Science teachers are hard-working and always improvising when in need of some apparatuses, the need for a laboratory cannot be improvised.

Currently, our students use the second block as a library but since in September another group is coming, it means the improvised ‘library’ will be occupied by the students.

We believe that in line with quality education there is a need for a good laboratory and library.

Our students are excited about their school campus, it is certain that they will be more excited with a beautiful science laboratory which will enable them have a practical feel of the theories they learn in class.
