Friday 25 January saw the launch of the St Andrew’s College Academy. The Academy has been established to support 15 pupils from Nombulelo Secondary School to empower them academically. These Nombulelo Secondary School learners were introduced to the St Andrew’s College Academy on Friday.
St Andrew’s College Headmaster, Mr Alan Thompson, welcomed the learners and staff involved in the Academy stating the main focus of this Academy is “to enrich the academic results of those involved in the programme.”
St Andrew’s College Community Engagement Officer, Ncumisa Mzaza said: “Our vision is to establish a world class academic training environment in partnership with schools in Grahamstown East, which is sustainable and which will have a significant influence on Grahamstown’s English, Mathematics and Science matriculation results as well as University entrance acceptance numbers.”
The St Andrew’s College Academy has been made possible through generous support from Liberty and The HM Pitje Foundation.
