The Philip Pascall Chapel and Hall
Philip Pascall’s Gift to Solwezi

On Friday, 7th October 2022, Trident College opened its latest world-class facility to bring the people of Solwezi closer to each other. The grand opening event of the Philip Pascall Chapel and Hall was graced by government officials, representatives of First Quantum Minerals (FQM) Ltd, as well as parents of pupils that attend the prestigious international school.

The facility’s name is in honour of the contributions of Mr Philip Pascall, the retired CEO of First Quantum Minerals Ltd. The naming of the building acknowledged his work in the mining sector and the focus of his organisation on corporate citizenry in Zambia. Without Mr Pascall’s mobilisation of personal and company resources to create the impressive building, the facility christened with his name would not be standing today.

Representing the Vice President of Zambia Mutale Nalumango at the grand opening, Hon. Minister of Science and Technology, Felix Mutati, spoke of how the facility would benefit churches, schools, creative arts communities and the general public in the district for many years to come. He added how the government was pleased by the efforts First Quantum Minerals Ltd was making in the education sector over its more than 25-year existence in Zambia and applauded them for spearheading the development of the facility.

The Philip Pascall Chapel and Hall looks to establish a meeting point for FQM, schools and many other community groups based within the district in hopes that it will bring the community closer together.

Trident College is an international school based in Solwezi, North-Western Province. Founded by the Pascall family, the school’s vision is to build a multicultural community in Solwezi while ensuring that young Zambians and other international students can confidently occupy centre stage in a global arena.

Offering International Cambridge IGCSE and A-Level curriculum, Trident College boasts a 100% pass rate at A Level, 70% C+ Grades at AS Level 2021 and 78% C+ Grades at IGCSE as of 2021.

With an ideal boarding and day pupil environment for children ages 7 to 18, Trident College provides a conducive learning space with small class sizes and highly qualified multicultural staff members.

Trident’s multinational 250+ intake of pupils not only achieves academic success, but their dynamic range of activities also allows them to develop their growth in the areas of sport, music, drama, art, environmental education and leadership.

To allow more pupils to learn from our world-class school, Trident College, in partnership with First Quantum Minerals Ltd, is offering a limited number of scholarships to deserving pupils to undertake a 2-year A-Level programme at Trident College Solwezi, commencing in January 2023. Pupils with exceptional Grade 12 results are encouraged to apply for the scholarship to study A-levels that will empower them into the future and open doors to the top local and international tertiary institutions.

Expression of interest forms are available on the Trident College website.
