Exploring the world through a microscope

Kefilwe Montshosi has always had visions of solving the biomedical challenges of the 21st century and had her heart set on doing a BSc in Biomedicine.  This is an extremely demanding yet highly rewarding qualification which requires high marks in Maths and Physics. Unfortunately Kefilwe just missed the required marks in her matric year at Hoerskool Jan De Klerk.

Kefilwe says “I had heard about UniHigh and their unique upgrade offering so I enrolled to redo Maths and Physics in 2016. The whole experience was amazing – from the facilities, the teachers, learner support, social life to the amazing canteen food. Best of all though is that my Maths mark improved by 23% and my Physics mark went up by 13%.
“UniHigh was my guiding light and helped me achieve my dream of exploring the world through a microscope”.

Kefilwe is now in her 1st year of the BSc in Biomedicine degree at the Pearson Institute.  We congratulate her on achieving her goal and wish her all the best for the rest of her studies.

UniHigh Girls go to Work

The Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day is a programme aimed at introducing girl learners in Grades 10 to 12 to the workplace and various career opportunities.

Adel Louw, Events Executive of The Maropeng & Sterkfontein Tours & Visitors Centre, invited 8 UniHigh learners to spend the day there with the hope of inspiring and motivating them to reach their full potential in the workplace when the time comes.

Our students had a fantastic time judging by their feedback…Mosa Moja said “It was one of the best days of my life, I learnt so much and am no longer scared of leaving school, am actually excited to go work now.” Michaela van Roon commented “We learnt so much and were treated just like employees, it was amazing.”

A very big thank you to Cell C & Maropeng Cradle of Humankind for hosting our girls.

UniHigh students up their ball game

UniHigh recently launched a new sport, action soccer, and the team is already featuring in the first league they entered. The 30-minute fast-paced game allows only four players on the pitch during play. Each team can have up to two substitute players. UniHigh’s team entered the Hillfox Action Arena’s Soccer League and with 13 matches played, they feature in the log’s top ten.

The eight players are in Grades 10, 11 and 12. Although the sport is not commonly found in many of Krugersdorp’s schools, the pupils had a great interest in participating.

We are planning to launch action netball this month and are also looking to expand the action soccer team to two teams in the league next year. Matches are played every Sunday afternoon and supporters are always welcome!

Shown here are Rob Franklin, Tshepang Mamashela, Bradley Humphries, Revvan Cocking, Reinhard Bester, Dean Lloyd and Tlamelo Madonsela – ready as ever to represent UniHigh at action soccer
