The Belgian Ladies of Charity have come from Johannesburg to visit the school. They are some of our most generous donors, especially involved in improving the wellness in the hostels.
31 learners of Grade 12 have entered today their final examination phase for the National Senior Certificate. Among them are 11 visually impaired or totally blind students. As a novelty for this year, those were using iPads and BraillePens to answer the question papers (for more information, visit our page about technology at the service of the blinds). The school offers variety of topics to choose from, as so many different ways to adapt the education to one’s preferences.
All the children were welcome for the festival of Saint Francis Catholic Academy on 10th of October. Diverse activities were organised such as jumping castle, jumping balls or swimming pool, as well as a second-hand stuff market and a toy lottery. We believe such events contribute to the family atmosphere in the school, emphasizing the proximity between learners and teachers. Special thanks to our supports, the Ladies of Charity and Rotary Club International.
