Recognition of Academic Excellence – CIRCLE OF EXCELLENCE

The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation congratulated St Stithians Girls’ College on being recognised as a Circle of Excellence school for 2015. The Circle of Excellence schools are selected according to academic performance on a 5 year rolling period (2010-2014).

The Foundation invests in a long-term legacy of greatness through inspiring and developing individuals who will become high impact responsible entrepreneurs. Every year, the Foundation selects the best and most ambitious Grade 12 student and first year university students from Southern Africa and offers students the exceptional Allan Gray Fellowship. The Fellowship includes comprehensive tertiary education financial support as well as mentorship and entrepreneurial mindset development.

We are extremely proud that our 2014 Head Girl, Rufaro Sithole, was awarded the Allan Gray Fellowship at the end of last year.
