About Us

Our Vision & Mission

To produce a generation of leaders and role models for Mitchell’s Plain. To give deserving students with potential access to tertiary education; so that they will in turn become active role models in Mitchell’s Plain.

Our History

After Trevor Manuel was deployed as African National Congress MP to serve the Mitchell’s Plain constituency in 2009 he engaged with community leaders from the area about their greatest needs, and the decision was taken to focus on education and skills.

On Youth Day 16 June 2011 the Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust was launched at Spine Road High School.

In April 2010 the Mitchell’s Plain Education Summit was held at Glendale High School with over 800 delegates, including school principals, SGBs, councillors, universities, colleges, community police forums, community-based organisations and NGOs, SETAs, parents and learners. The Mitchell’s Plain Education Forum was established, and Minister Manuel committed to working with the community to establish the Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust, so that deserving learners could gain access to further and higher education.

On Youth Day 16 June 2011 the Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust was launched at Spine Road High School. The first bursaries were awarded to 15 learners from the Mitchell’s Plain matric classes of 2012, who received R10,000 each towards tuition. This was paid directly to the educational institutions.
