Join Bizschool and get an attitude

“We equip you with an attitude, so you can be the captain of your destiny”, said Lebogang Mashabela, BizSchool programme coordinator (lebogang@bizschool.org.za – 072 7790016) who came to present  “Bizschool” to the Grade 12 at St Mary's, on Sept.21. Bizschool is a 2 weeks program from November 29 for Matriculants who don’t have plan for next year or just want to get some tips how to become “highly effective individuals”.
You’ll get rid of the exams stress with a three-day camp in Magaliesberg (29.11 to 01.12, transport is provided) with 59 other youngsters. Fun is included !!! Then,  all of you will attend a 10-days programme at Gibbs Institute (Rosebank  02.12 to 11.02) : life skills, career counselling, finance and IT, public speaking and communication (email etiquette, etc), workplace relationships and entrepreneurship (theory and practice, by making a business plan and selling your stuffs at the Jozi Food market and Market on Main). 

 Next year, a mentor (professional) will make sure that you put “your plan” (studies, business, etc) into practice.

”I gained confidence. Before, I could not speak in front of everyone. I also learned to work as a team and how to enter business”, said Tshegofatso Buthelezi, one of the 3 students from Alex who came to St Mary's to explain what experience she gained by attending  Bizschool. Lebogang Kekana  “learned how to listen to people and wait before talking, how to do a business plan”. “I did not know anything about business, now I know the basics”, added Molatelo Mabotsha, who had also to overcome his fear and “jump from a bridge” during  camp.

 Cost of the program : R900 . If your family cannot pay this, you can still apply and indicate what contribution they could afford. If you are attending St Mary's class, send me an email if you need an application (valou.hirsch@gmail.com ) and bring it back to St Mary’s by October 12 – Or email directly Legogang as anyone can apply – check : www.bizschool.org.za
