Two brand NEW high-tech classrooms

Gratton school is building two brand new high-tech classrooms

Gratton school is growing and in order to be able to offer more educational spaces we need more classrooms.

By the end of 2020, two classrooms with the latest technology will be built from scratch so that we can expand the school as planned from January 2021.

Students from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) have designed the classrooms. They are very nice and the project is being sponsored by Zulufadders main sponsor NutraQ, the students at AHO, as well as private sponsors.

Support from Rotary International

Earlier this year, we sent an application to the Rotary Foundation in Chicago to get technology equipment for the classrooms – and we got a YES! They are supporting us with $60,000 to buy iPads, electronic tablets, projectors, software, as well as support for teacher training. Three Norwegian Rotary clubs, as well as Rotary district 2250 participated in a matching grant with the Rotary Foundation.

Would you like to help us with this project?

We have to build the two classrooms before Christmas to get the money from Rotary. We are very well underway, but we still need some help to get to the finish line.

Please contact the Zulufadder project manager for more information

Applications open for 2021 – limited spaces!

Excellent Matric results

In 2019, our very first Matric class wrote their final examinations.

A lot of work and support had been provided to make sure that they do well. Many of our learners faced a variety of difficulties and challenges that would have held them back had they not chosen to work hard, believe in themselves and motivate each other.

It is with pride that we announce  that against all odds, our Matric class of 2019 achieved a 100% pass rate with quality results . They attained a 100% pass rate in English Home language, IsiZulu FAL, Physical Sciences, Business Studies, History, Tourism, Computer Applications Technology, Life Orientation and Mathematics Literacy an 83% pass in Geography, 80% in Pure Mathematics and a 75 % in Economics.

The school pays tribute to all teachers, parents, board members and most importantly to the learners themselves who have made us proud in our first attempt at Matric. It is our hope that besides these very good academic results, our learners take away so many other values that  the school emphasised  upon during their school years – critical thinking, honesty, diligence, gratitude, generosity and Ubuntu, among others.

We wish them the best in their future endeavors.
