The Dimension Data Saturday School
We’ve always known that our country’s tomorrow lies in the hands of the youth of today. Over 21 years ago, we started our flagship Academic Accelerator – The Dimension Data Saturday School, which aims to empower the youth through education.
This initiative has seen great success with the programme’s grade 11 and 12 learners achieving a 100% pass rate.
When I was nine years old, I decided I wanted to become an accountant. And not long after that, I decided I was going to become a chartered accountant and work in finance. Well, that’s my short-term goal. What I’d really love to do is to become an entrepreneur and start my own real estate company. I want to invest in fixed property and eventually I want to own my own block of flats.
In high school, this felt like a distant dream of mine, but thanks to my principal, Shakes; my teachers, and the Saturday School, I’ve started to believe in myself more and more. The Saturday School really changed my life. It improved my average marks by at least 20% since the end of grade 10, helped me secure seven distinctions, and moved me one step closer to making my dreams a reality.
