How do you walk a thousand miles? One step at a time. We believe changing our country, and making a real difference, are similarly daunting and yet equally simple – it starts with one child at a time.
One child at a time is our subsidy programme – aimed at offering disadvantaged children the gift of a lifetime – a living education at Ambleside.
Unlike most school Bursary Programmes, our qualification criteria for subsidies are based on need and attitude, rather than on an outstanding ability or talent. In this way, we believe that we are truly empowering our community, as opposed to compounding disadvantage, by awarding bursaries only to the very gifted.
Currently, there are 24 learners between the ages of 5yrs and 18yrs in need of financial aid in order to complete their school tuition. The basic annual school fees range from R24,500 (Pre-school level) to R39,865 (Grade 8-12) per annum. Monthly fees are from R2,385 (Pre-school) to R3,815(Grade 10-12) per month.
