The Isithelo Project
The Isithelo Project is an opportunity to do something uniquely amazing. For 10 days we are changing the way the High School looks to center around each individual students own project idea. The results of this project will be shown at the Isithelo Exhibition.
The Zulu proverb: Isihlahla saziwa ngezitelo zaso means "a tree is known by its fruit". This is the inspiration behind the name of the project: Isithelo is the isiZulu word for "fruit". Our analogy is that through their Isithelo project a student will have the opportunity to demonstrate the "fruit" of their learning.
The Vision of the project is:
"Through the Isithelo project we will empower teachers and students. We will provide time, resources and mentorship. The community will embrace the belief that we all have the opportunity to do something amazing. Students will practice perseverance through the ability to investigate, design, create, take risks and tolerate failure."
