Schools should be institutions of hope, hubs of opportunity, places of belonging and vehicles of transformation and growth to their surrounding communities.
We want to see the rise of Strong Schools that can bring sustainable change to their immediate communities and the people they represent. We believe Strong Schools can inspire transformation: from downward spiraling generational cycles and a dwindling education system, to healthy, wholesome and hopeful futures for our society and our youth.
A tree is known by its fruit but to change the fruit, you have to change its roots. If we want our schools to produce good fruit like better quality education, learners with access to possibilities and opportunities for their futures, healthy and wholesome learning environments etc., we have to invest in its roots. The stronger the roots, the higher and better the tree can grow. A school’s roots are the support structures and the conduits that allow life to flow to the tree. We want to see schools with capable and inspired staff, practical and safe facilities and values that can transform lives and circumstances.
A school’s community can empower its school with support, investment and involvement and in return a strong school has the potential to transform its community by offering hope for the future.
