Partnership with Secondary Schools Arts Programmes

It is with notable excitement that when you want to keep learners in schools. You need to also promote the spirit of playing, creativity and cooperation.

  • Schools in Africa are filled with a burden to complete annual curricular and for their schools to out compete.
  • Whilst achieving this schools are forgetting that learners have created the hatred for schools. 
  • As they are now too focused on getting high marks.
  • When in a relationship there is no fun the relationship turns to a divorce.
  • That is why in middle and private schools they also have more extra mural activities which the learners in schools are participating in. 
    By doing so. They are encouraging the learners to enjoying going to school.
  • However, in poor or government led schools we see a different story.

The challenge with School Arts Programmes

Due to no leadership effort or an institution that is taking a lead in creating competition, excitement and performance. We have seen a huge drop in School Arts Programmes.

  • Southern Africa Youth Project is seeking to collaborate with business sector, local, provincial, district, national governments and international institutions to promote the School Arts Programmes.
  • We cannot do this without the support of individuals and institutions like yours.
  • Schools are continuing to see a huge drop in learner numbers.
  • At the beginning of Grade 1 we see over 100 million but at the end of the school grades we only see 90 000. That is 90% drop in the number of learners who remain in schools.
  • Southern Africa Youth Project has seen that learners in primary school turn to remain there because of the fun and excitement they have.
  • However, it is different on the higher grades. Where we see lots of homeworks and no extra mural activities.
