The announcement was made by the Minister President of the Federation, Rudy Demotte, during a visit at Minerva high school in Alexandra. our top Grade 12, Brillant Moyo, received the bursaries funding, in the names of all our learners (more pictures on Facebook page : Sizanani mentors)

The bursaries recipients will be chosen in January among the learners from Alexandra high schools who attended St Mary's Saturday classes on a regular basis. Priority will be given to those who did not get another bursary and who applied for Nsfas loan in time but did not get it (because of a shortage of funding). So if it is your case in January, please send me an email (email@example.com) : students in 1st year or above can apply for bursaries.
In 2014, we will also get 10 000 euros worth bursaries from the French company RATP (for engineering students) and a full bursary from South African businessman and sponsor of the Alexandra high schools project at St Mary's, Herman Mashaba.
