Education

The Steve Biko Centre education programme:

  • Develops curriculum drawing on the legacies of marginalized individuals and communities to promote diversity
  • Advances school reform by encouraging community participation in school governing bodies as well as capacity building and leadership training for both school administrators and learners
  • Sponsors a secondary school debate series, which serves as a platform for promoting youth participation in local, provincial, national and global policy dialogue

One of the vehicles through which the Foundation transmits this information is its Legacy Classes. These classes can be booked upon request by teachers and principals. Each class, which is run by an SBF program officer, is specially tailored to meet the needs of the visiting students. Since the launch of the Centre on November 30th, over 3,868 learners have gone through this program.

Another key element of the Centre’s educational program is the library and educational resource centre. Since officially opening the Centre, the Foundation has recruited a well qualified and respected individual in the field of library science to establish the facility. To achieve this, the librarian is currently procuring 10,000 titles for the facility and assessing software to support its operations. Once the library is fully functional, the librarian will turn his attention to mounting a collections campaign to build the archival component. Our Education programs extend to Sports Development which includes the Steve Biko Schools Tournament.
