The academic year 2022 for Western Cape schools started on Wednesday 17 January, 25 nervously excited Grade 8’s officially began their high school journey as Spirit Education Foundation scholars. We welcome each of these special young people into the Spirit Education Foundation family. Within our group of Grade 8’s of 2022 we have 8 scholars at Claremont High, 2 scholars at Westerford, 3 scholars at Norman Henshilwood High School, 1 scholar at Wynberg Girls’ High School, 1 at Bergvleit High School and 2 scholar at South Peninsula High School, 4 at Cape Academy of Maths Science and Technology, 3 at Reddam House Constantia and 2 at Pinelands High School. We are grateful to the Horwood family, the NOW Fund, Crew for a Cause, Suzako Holdings as well as private donors from Warwick Wealth and one of our Alumni Agape Thamar for the for the generous sponsorship towards the school fees, academic support, and care of each of these fine young scholars.
Not only do we wish the Grade 8s who are embarking on their journey well but we commend and wish our 23 bright and motivated scholars, the Spirit Education Foundation Matric Class of 2022, a year that will set them up for success and future education dreams that they have. Apart from the pressures of matric, many of these scholar’s form part of various portfolio committees or hold other leadership positions within their schools. We wish that them every success as they walk the final year of their High School journey. It feels like just the other day that these scholars were starting their high school journeys, and here they stand, leaders and role models within their school communities. We are proud of them all and not to mention looking very smart in their matric uniforms!
