2018 will be the third incredibly successful year of the groundbreaking Extra Term Initiative at Bishops; a component of the newly launched Hamilton Mvelase Bursary Fund.
This program sees a current Bishops family, an OD class group or organization support a boy from a previously disadvantaged background by paying one term’s school fees annually, for the duration of the boys college career.
Below you will see the breakdown of what that amounts to financially – this tax-deductible (Section 18A) contribution is therefore not a huge burden. Four OD year groups (covering the four terms annually) would easily be able to provide the fees required to give a deserving boy the incredible opportunities afforded by a Bishops education.
The donor (or donor OD group) will receive bi-annual progress reports from both the school and the beneficiary. A voluntary mentorship program is also in place and the donor and beneficiary families may be introduced at a meeting arranged by the school. We require funding for 8 boys for 2018.
