The Victory Park Adult Education Centre is a satellite school for the City Deep Public Learning Centre and has been facilitated by De La Salle Holy Cross College since 1985.

Grade 11 learner, Alice Markham said 170 students attend the classes to further their education.

They are hosted every weekday from 6pm to 8pm and from 9am to 4pm on Saturdays. Classes cater to those who have challenges completing their education from Grade 1 to matric level. Many of the students go on to further their studies.

“The centre also offers classes that help learners gain practical skills, including sewing, ancillary health care, SMME business management and early childhood development,” said Markham.

She added the centre consists of a team of 10 teachers who’ve dedicated themselves to teaching for two hours at night.

Their aim is to create a supportive and effective learning environment for students. Education’s free for learners from grades 1 to 11 and Grade 12s pay a R100 registration fee, with an additional R100 per subject.

The low price ensures that those – who would not have been able to afford it – would have an opportunity to enrol at the centre.

Victory Park Adult Education Centre principal, Francis Mabunda said he is very proud of the students.

Their aim is to empower, motivate and enable students to prosper in their chosen careers which he believes will contribute effectively and efficiently to the economy.

De La Salle Holy Cross College’s Debbie Harris said the centre is doing exemplary work to help those who have been given fewer opportunities to advance themselves and are expecting another year of excellent results.

“We are so inspired by these hardworking students and our contribution and support reflects our school motto: Be First That You May be of Service,” said Harris.
