UBAMBISWANO - TODAY AND TOMORROW
Our programme has successfully ensured that we give our students opportunities and hope. We regularly review the programme to ensure we meet the requirements of our ever-changing world.
Areas of focus include:
Ensuring that the core programme is integrated with relevant technology, leadership and life skills.
Encouraging participation in sport, as we believe that sport plays an important role in promoting wellness and social cohesion.
Consolidating relationships with our feeder schools, the Department of Education and other partners.
We believe the success of uBambiswano is reflected in the success of our students. To this end, skills development and a focus on working towards tertiary education are critical to our programme.
