“49% of all learners who start Grade 1 drop out of school before reaching Grade 12”
SALT established the Finishing Strong Project to break this trend to provide financial, motivational, and educational support to students who strive to complete high school in the Dunoon/Milnerton area.
The main aim of the Finishing Strong programme is to provide extra educational support. Senior pupils benefit from Saturday tutor workshops, while junior pupils receive mid-week tutoring support.
Financial support is important in equipping students with the appropriate tools and resources, including uniforms, stationery, and access to internet/textbooks. This is where Managing Director, Mike Russon gave the kids at SALT a boost in learning by donating an amount of R 43 450.00 for tablets to be purchased to enable the kids access to online learning.
