The School of Hope is a place of learning where we value HOPE FAMILY TRANSFORMATION RESPONSIBILITY AND GIVING. We are education-junkies, sold out to breaking the cycle of crime, poverty and unemployment by giving every person the chance to complete their education. There is nothing more important that we can do for South Africa today!

December News

Meghan Martin (Centre)

Awards evening was an outstanding night of joy and tears: top achievers were awarded but we also said goodbye to the Matric learners. Meghan Martin, who was awarded school Valedictorian for 2011, made an unforgettable speech that encapsulated the transformation that took place in her during her time at the School of Hope.

The matrics have started writing their final exams for 2011. So far, they are reporting back to us with broad, confident smiles! 

The rest of the school was treated to an adventurous day spent on a 4X4 trail over roughest terrain! The day was made possible by Kobus Meyer and the Be A Blessing team in twelve 4X4's. They gave each of the 25 participants a goodie bag, took them strawberry picking and thrilled them with their adrenalin-pumping 4X4 antics!

School of Hope also has a new friend: head of the weather department and celebrity meteorologist Derek Van Damme. He has visited the school twice and led the morning devotions, much to the delight of all the students. Before he left, he answered some of our questions and threw in an accurate weather forecast. He was fun, informative and inspiring!
