This fund enables us to provide the Brescia House School education from Grade 8 to deserving girls with academic potential from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.
This is a permanent investment fund from which interest are paid annually to support specific development projects of the School. The fund's principal asset base (the total of all contributions) remains intact and grows through sound investment and additional donations. Contributions to an endowment fund are truly gifts that keep on giving. Because an endowment fund offers a permanent source of income, it’s a smart, fiscally responsible funding strategy.
This fund is an annual bursary, available to a Brescia Alumnae’s daughter who is in financial need and meets the School’s entrance criteria, to attend Brescia House High School.
Educators are our most valuable asset as the Brescia education experience is enriched by our teacher’s passion and commitment to their practice. We honour and respect this sentiment by offering various staff development programmes and opportunities to our teaching faculty. This includes further training, the latest ICT resources and Global Education exchange programmes.
This bursary is offered to selected past Brescia House School girls who would like to study teaching full time. Their studies will be paid for at an institution of their choice and after final qualification they will work at Brescia House School for an equal number of years that tuition was paid for.
Our objective is to assist selected student teachers in completing their teaching qualification together with hands on practical experience as an intern teacher at Brescia House School. Our educational focus will be in Mathematics, Science, and the Foundation Phase. Successful candidates will have their studies and books paid for and receive a small stipend. They will also be absorbed into the school community with access to all our resources including academic support and mentoring. The students will assist with academic, sporting and cultural activities.
The objective of this fund is to assist learners with incidentals costs, including (but not limited to): uniforms, books and school tours.
