WATERFALL Preparatory School welcomed two new pupils to Grade 2.

Lungelo Zondi and Noluthando Mgenge have been awarded Focus on iThemba scholarships for 2017.

The iThemba Campus is the home of Waterfall Pre-Primary, Waterfall Preparatory and Waterfall College. The three-school’s occupation of the state-of-the-art Focus on iThemba classrooms and buildings will result in funding for this NPO in the future.

“The iThemba Scholarship Programme enables previously disadvantaged children from the surrounding community to attend Waterfall Schools from Grade 1 to Grade 12,” says Gavin Kruger, of the Focus on iThemba team.

He also spoke about the future of the scholarship programme, and how it would benefit children.

“Other than these two children it is expected that another six pupils from the iThemba Academy will be joining them next year,” said Kruger.

Lungelo and Noluthando have been at the iThemba Academy since their Grade R year in 2015 and live in the Embo Community and both have demonstrated continuous excellence in their academic ability.

Sue Sage, iThemba Academy principal says: “The progress of these two pupils can be attributed to their thirst for knowledge and excellent work ethic.”

In the words of Caitlyn Stevens HOD of Waterfall Preparatory School: “We are humbled and excited to have Lungelo and Noluthando join the Waterfall Preparatory family and we are dedicated to supporting both them and their families throughout their new journey with us.” - Supplied.
