Congratulations to uBambiswano alumnus Amukelani Manda for achieving excellent results. Amukelani was a student at uBambiswano from 2014 to 2017. She joined St Andrew’s School for Girls in Grade 10, where she has thrived for the past three years. Amukelani has not only shone academically, but she has also continued to give back to her community, staying involved with uBambiswano on Saturdays. Our students enjoy interacting with her and we are so proud of her. 

We wish Amukelani well in her future endeavours. We have no doubt that she can achieve anything she sets her mind to.

On Saturday 13 March 2021, we hosted an awards assembly to celebrate the achievements of our 2020 Grade 6 to 8 students. Our special guests were Dean Moodley, Sanele Dlamini and Biko Mlambo, who all come from similar backgrounds to those of our students. They shared their journeys of becoming successful pilots and how they overcame the challenges they faced along the way. Their talk was inspirational and so well received by our students and staff. The awards ceremony was such a heart-warming occasion, and has energised us all for the rest of this school year.
