SPARK Schools

A South African school offering affordable quality education is using its network to continue living Mandela’s legacy


The youth have always been the ones that change South Africa and since SPARK Schools was born in 2013, thousands of South African youth have the opportunity of creating positive change while being able to access high quality education at a fraction of the cost!

And now the progressive SPARK School network have launched their own Charity initiative for Mandela Day – 100 BOXES.

SPARK Schools 100 boxes

It’s a great task, but with YOUR help, it will hopefully create a massive impact on our communities and country!

This year would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th Birthday and SPARK Schools’ aim is to fill 100 large boxes with items we often take for granted. Things like basic food, clothing, educational or sanitary items that will be given to struggling Scholars, the Elderly, Orphans, the Homeless, the Abused, Public Servants and Animals in distress.

“We want as many people as humanly possible to join in and donate what they can – big or small.

If you live in Johannesburg, Pretoria or the Western Cape, find out where your nearest SPARK School is, pop by and drop off what you can. The official Drop-off Day is on 18 July, Mandela Day, but the donation boxes will be available at each school until the end of July, so get those donations in!”

Join SPARK Schools this July in celebrating the spirit of Madiba and donate something this Mandela Day. #100BoxesForMadiba

SPARK Schools is a network of private primary schools that provide high-quality education at an affordable cost.

“We believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed academically and to develop holistically. We are united in one mission: Every SPARK scholar should have the opportunity to go to university and to enter a career of their choice.” Our combination of traditional classroom teaching and technology-based learning in our Learning Labs allows our scholars to achieve globally competitive academic results.”“Our scholars perform well above national average for their grades. Data from each child’s technology-based learning is fed back to the teacher, allowing them to cater to the child’s individual needs.
