As the first blog post of this new year, my team and I are proud to welcome all of our parents, scholars, partners, students and alumni to the start of a new decade and an exciting and inspiring new leg of the SBF journey.
We start the year energised and motivated to realise our vision of well-rounded and goal-oriented individuals who will contribute positively to the future of South Africa and become citizens of the world.
It gives me great pleasure to say that I believe we’re on the right track: the quality of the results achieved to date speaks very clearly to this.
100% SBF Matric Pass Rate
91% of Matrics achieved 60% aggregate or above
27% of Matrics achieved distinctions (80% or more)
Within the SBF offices, much of 2019 involved developing new strategies on how we can best serve our scholars to achieve academically and grow holistically. The completion of an intense corporate restructure sees us with a reinvigorated sense of purpose, a fresh team of talented leaders, a new-look website and an evolved brand identity underpinned by the notion to always ‘Embrace Your Potential’.
The lens through which we engage with our scholars and evaluate success throughout their SBF journey, is expressed through our SBF Branches of Family, Integrity, Celebrating The Unique, Nurturing Well-Being and Cultivating Grit.
It is no coincidence that the theme of family is central to our organisation. It is a key aspect of our day-to-day operations and is the foundational element of the relationships we develop. We’re always cognizant of the important role individual families play, and are immensely grateful to them for their close participation and involvement in our shared journey at every stage along the way.
Essential to these success stories are the relationships we have with our partner institutions and corporates. What we do and what we hope to achieve is only possible through our shared commitment to our beneficiaries and their potential to shape the future.
We look forward to growing our network of partners who realise the importance of our mission of changing lives and communities through quality education and holistic support.
Thank you to every individual and institution that has contributed to the achievements thus far. We are thrilled and humbled to have you walk alongside us as we take this bold step into a new year and a future filled with possibilities.
