SEVERAL gr. 11 learners of the Maths and Science Leadership Academy (NCP) were hosted at the Harry Oppenheimer House for a job-shadowing programme on 27 and 28 June.

The learners were identified by De Beers as top learners from previously disadvantaged communities. The programme formed part of the mining company’s initiative to support the government’s national agenda which emphasises the importance of the youth in establishing a prosperous future in South Africa.

The high schools that were represented were Homevale, St Boniface, Floors, Kimberley Boys’ High, Vuyolwethu, Tetlanyo, Dr EP Lekhela and Northern Cape.

The learners spent time at the Big Hole with De Beers and did team building at the Hunger and Thirst Foundation. The programme also involved job shadowing and the World of De Beers, which focused on the business environment.
