BULAWAYO MEMORIES

Girls College


Girls' College is an independent, day and boarding high school for girls in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The school was founded in 1983. In January 1983, Girls' College opened with an initial enrollment of seventy-five Form One pupils and six teachers with Ross Fuller as the headmaster of the institution. The school is located at what was the Queens Court residential hotel, which had closed down in 1982. The Ross Fuller Hall was opened in 1991, surrounding residences were bought and turned into hostels. A building across the road from the main school premises was acquired and named Palmer House with the purpose of establishing commercial classes.

The badge
It features a central crossed crosslet in red (an insignia which forms part of the coat-of-arms for the City of Bulawayo). The school motto, “Our Hope Is Constant In Thee”, found underneath the crosslet, affirms the school's Christian basis. Above the crosslet are three interlocking gold-coloured amulets which are symbolic, on three different levels, depending on the context in which one wishes to view them. It symbolises the teachers, pupils, and parents; or the academic, cultural, and physical aspects of the school; or the commercial, industrial, and educational professions which co-operated to establish the school.
