  • Overview

Gifford High School is a government owned boys only high school in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The school was founded in 1927 as Bulawayo Technical School led by Mr P.H. Gifford and four teachers, with an enrollment of about 39 pupils. [1]

High school status was achieved in 1931. Since 1953 it has been located on Matopos Road, just adjacent to Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) Show grounds. In 1962, it was renamed in honour of its founder. The school's motto is Hinc Orior which is Latin meaning "From here I arise" or specifically "from these beginnings my formed mind springs". The school's major rival is Milton High School. [1]

Gifford junior debate club has shown to be the one and only truly working club in the entire school as it is constantly winning debate and public speaking competitions. [1]
