SCHOLARSHIPS AND BURSARIES – TRANSFORM TO PERFORM

On the occasion of our School’s Founders Day today, 15 March and in keeping with the WCED’s Transform to Perform strategy, Bergvliet High was proud to launch its new Community Scholarship and Bursary Funds. The two funds cater for different donor types and for different learners.

At Bergvliet High School we believe that a first-rate education equips children for life. It opens minds and worlds: children discover and develop their talents, interests, and aptitudes, to become the most productive members of their communities, and highly valuable contributors to society. At Bergvliet High School, we commit to educational excellence so that our learners can soar and be their best – in their future careers, as community leaders, and in their personal lives. We respect and value diversity in our community school. It reflects the richness of our society. It makes us stronger.

Some of our learners come from challenging circumstances: junior schools with class sizes of 50 or more children, under-resourced schools, and challenging home circumstances. These exceptional children, full of promise, talent and grit, cannot transcend these constraints on their own. In order for them to perform we need to transform their lives. We need your help to do this.

Let me tell you about our two funds.

BERGVLIET HIGH COMMUNITY BURSARY FUND

The Bursary Fund is open to applications from any Bergvliet High learner who is in financial need and who requires some kind of financial support in order to be able to attend Bergvliet High. Academic strength is not necessarily required in order to qualify for a bursary, but the learner must show a proven commitment to their education by having a good record of behaviour and participation in the sporting and/or cultural activities of the school.

The Bursary Fund does not require a long term commitment as is the case with the Scholarship Fund. Donors can contribute any amount to the fund, no matter how small. This income will then be pooled and used to support these learners in need. Donors are encouraged to see this as an opportunity to “pay it forward”.

BERGVLIET HIGH COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP FUND

The Scholarship Fund is aimed at those who excel academically and who will be accountable for their academic results while they are benefiting from the scholarship. It is a 5 year commitment by the donor for payment of the recipient’s full school fees from Grade 8 to Grade 12.

A scholarship to attend Bergvliet High School builds a secure foundation for these marginalised children. A scholarship allows them to flourish. A scholarship makes them equal to their peers and allows them to imagine, and instils in them a sense of hope for a brighter future. A scholarship is an investment in their lives, their communities and in the richness of the school community at Bergvliet High School.

We are extremely grateful to our current donors who have co-developed this model over the past 5 years and who have already seen the value of their investment in the learners of our school. We look forward to partnering with you.
