Community Connection

 

As a proudly South African school, we actively connect with our local nearby community through our kindness initiatives, teacher mentoring and from 2019 the dynamic iThemba Scholars Programme. It is a core value of our team to help instill values of kindness and caring, as we believe you can make a positive difference no matter how young your age.

Annually we encourage donations towards our Winter Warmth Drive where blankets and pre-loved teddies are collected for the Pre-Schools which our campus-based non-profit organization, Focus on iThemba, partners with. In addition, our Principal, Paula Mason, shares curriculum ideas and teaching tips with these schools.

The life-changing iThemba Scholars Programme offers scholarships for boys and girls who demonstrate the potential to thrive academically to attend Waterfall Schools. The children are selected from the pre-schools based near to our campus partnering with Focus on iThemba. From 2019 we are thrilled that the programme has expanded to two scholarships at Grade 000 level. The Fund currently supports eight children from Grade 1 to Grade 4 at Waterfall Prep and collectively aims to support two new children annually. If you or your business would like the opportunity to facilitate life-altering change and contribute towards the fund please be in contact with Focus on iThemba, Donor Relations Manager, Tayla-Anne Goss at tayla@focusonithemba.org.
