Based in Mabude Street, Excelsior Comprehensive School has been uplifting learners and helping them to develop through educational activities. The school was excited to learn that it will be receiving assistance from the Hollywood Foundation’s Back to School campaign this year, as many of the learners from the school come from poor backgrounds.
Apart from educational services, the school also offers learners leadership workshops, career exhibitions and extra-mural activities. The school has opened up about the challenges of teaching learners who often attend school with torn clothes. Many of the learners are orphans, and as such, they do not have family support or the finances to buy new school clothes at the start of the year. The Team from iBranch in the Eastern Cape visited the school on 10 February 2022, to hand over new school shoes and uniform for the learners.
NV Maqwelane, a representative for the school, thanked the Team for the visit and the new supplies, and added that it will make a big difference to many learners who do not own school uniforms.
