The students’ involvement in community and environmental projects is an essential part of our school curriculum. Our school’s motto for our outreach arm is: “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Our aim is to lead by example, to serve others, to respect other cultures and to contribute positively to society. We will be involved in reading schemes, numeracy and literacy training, art workshops and skills development.
We have achieved Eco School, Platinum status. We care about doing our part to advance the “green” movement. By using products that are environmentally friendly, we can lead by example and make our learners aware, from a practical view, how it is enforced. We have also introduced a formal recycling initiative into our school environment from the Executive Head’s office to the classrooms. Each learner, as part of a team, will have a turn to categorize and dispose of our clean litter which can be recycled. We educate the school staff and learners on which items of litter can be recycled and hope that the ideas will filter into your homes too.
Also envisaged is:
- Social responsibility & investment
- Establishment of an educational trust
- Mountain Cambridge School supports the following organisations: Ennis Thabong Primary, Lesedi House, CANSA, Rainbows & Smile, Hartbeespoort Animal Welfare Society, Ten Rooms School, Purple Pinkies for Polio Awareness & Dare to share
- Santa Shoebox project
- Jars of Hope
Our students will be responsible for the successful running of their own entrepreneurial ventures, the proceeds of which will be used for community development projects. Under the guidance of our mentorship programme we will nurture and develop our students’ business skills. This programme forms an essential part of our Personal Skills Development Programme.
