JuniorTukkie Africa and International Chapter

Another interesting initiative of the JuniorTukkie (JT) Office of the Department of Enrolment and Student Administration is the establishment of a footprint in Africa and internationally to give deserving students at educational institutions from all over the world the opportunity to share in the benefits of the JuniorTukkie programme but also to provide JuniorTukkies in South Africa the opportunity to experience student life in these countries.

 

The vision is two-fold:

  1. To establish a dynamic relationship-building and enrichment programme to identify and invite deserving students from other countries to benefit from the JT programme’s vallue-added activities in order to prepare them for successful transition from high school to a tertiary study environment.
  2. To empower current JT members by exposing them to similar enrichment programmes offered in other countries and to provide them with the opportunities to attend and experience these programmes first-hand.

 

Negotiations started with the following partners:

 

School of St Jude and St Constantine's International School

During a recent visit to Tanzania, the School of St Jude and St Constantine's International School in Arusha indicated their willingness to establish a formal partnership with the JuniorTukkie programme. They undertook to send some of their learners to the JuniorTukkie Grade 11 Empowerment Week to be held on the Hatfield Campus from 27 June to 3 July 2015.

 

National Society for High School Scholar (NSHSS)

An agreement was recently signed with a USA representative of the National Society for High School Scholars (NSHSS) to support our JT initiatives.
