The team behind the journey

Our team is part of a larger School belief that quality education should be accessible for all deserving students.

We all play a role in our mission to secure funds for bursaries. With a shared commitment to creating opportunities and fostering talent, we work to ensure financial barriers never stand in the way of a student’s dreams. Join us on the Road to 2035 and change a life, one bursary at a time.
