Making the circle bigger
Next year will be a special one for the LEAP learning community. For the first time ever we will have more than 1000 students across our six school campuses schools, as LEAP 4 reaches complete high school status and Grade 8 is integrated into all LEAP schools.
Extending the LEAP intervention from four to five years has been tested at LEAP 6 in Ga-Rankuwa this year with spectacular results. The extra year has allowed us to identify and address students’ academic challenges earlier, enabling them to achieve better outcomes through the rest of their school career. It also gives us an extra year of intervention to help students grow and develop as responsible citizens and agents of change in their communities.
All this adds up to more young people and communities served through the LEAP learning model, reducing our cost per student without compromising on the quality of teaching and learning. And of course, the more young people who have access to a quality education, the more future leaders we can produce and the greater the benefit to our society as a whole.
If there is one appeal I could make, it is that young people must take it upon themselves to ensure that they receive the highest education possible so that they can represent us well in future as future leaders.”
– Nelson Mandela from the documentary Mandela in America, 1990
You can help us reach more young South Africans with all the potential but none of the opportunity. R35,000 funds a student at LEAP for a year, transforming a young person’s life forever.
It’s the season of giving right now, what better gift than the gift of a good education and a decent future?
