Masi High School

The students and staff of Masi High have had to overcome many hurdles, including the passing of one of their fellow students due to gang-related crime and an attack on the principal, causing him to leave. The High School is committed to shining at its former glory and bringing the pass rate back up to 84%. Masicorp and Masi Sports are essential in this developmental progress.

There are many distractions for teenagers living in a township and the choices they make will drastically affect their paths in life. Life skill training is of vital importance.
With that in mind, Rian Perry head of NPO, Community Cohesion, has agreed to a series of workshops for Grade 8s in their transition to the High School and for the Grade 11 and 12 learners in their transition to life after school. This is beginning in 2021. Their purpose is ”that all our citizens are afforded access to quality,

Rights-Based Therapeutic social work and psycho-social services so that they are able to realize their potential, irrespective of their socio-economic situation.” The perils of gangs, drugs, GBV and criminality will be discussed to assist the youth to make better choices.

Ukhanyo Primary School

Ukhanyo Primary School

Ukhanyo Primary, with its almost 2000 kids and 47 teachers, is an amazing energetic academic institution. Yet, up to 2017, it had limited sport and no field just one netball court.

The school is so special, having been born out of a very poor environment with high unemployment; it is a place of safety and adventure. Sports, as well as the school’s choir, tribal dancing and more recently chess club, give the learners an outlet of expression outside academics which allows them to flourish.

Children need an identity, a sense of belonging and a feeling of spontaneous invincibility one gets through sport. Sports can give the kids a glimpse of their real and unlimited potential, whilst also leading them away from gangs and drugs as they navigate those, sometimes, challenging school years.
