Nandi Tshaliti’s dream of studying towards a business management course was made possible after Boston City Campus offered her a fully funded bursary.

Nandi was initially offered a bursary worth R20 000 but the institution has decided to offer her a fully funded bursary considering her academic qualities.

Dube said they have been offering R20 000 bursaries to the school’s children over the years and this year they’ve decided to increase the bursary.

“Nandi’s bursary includes everything she will require to study toward her three-year diploma, including all reading material,” said Dube.

“We have been working with the school for many years and we are proud of the quality of education they provide to their children.”

Nandi was assisted by her life orientation teacher and head of the school’s department, Marthie Brits to get this bursary.

Brits said Nandi came to her last year because she was worried about her academic future plans. Brits then promised to assist her.

“When she came to me she was in tears and she told me that she does not know what she’s going to do. I said I will try to assist her,” said Brits.

“I then spoke to other teachers and we approached Boston for assistance and here we are today – Nandi is going to fulfil her dream now.

“Through our relationship with Boston the institution offered our Grade 12 children free financial independent course to the value R2500,” said Brits adding even their teachers get training workshops at Boston for free.

When asked what this means to her, Nandi said, “It means the world because I was really worried what I’m going to do next year.”

Nandi was accompanied by both her parents Chide and Charlotte Zike who also said they are very excited about the news.

Headmaster Chris Mathebula said he hopes that this will motivate other children that hard work pays.
