MOKOPANE – A new era has dawned in education in Limpopo on Tuesday, 2 May, when learners of Mokopane Destiny Academy (MDA) moved into ‘The Cube,’ a state-of-the-art school building which encompasses the latest international design trends in educational facilities. The school will be hosting an Open Day on 23 June.
The official opening will be held on 19 May 2017. Keep a look out in the press for our next ‘OPEN DAY’ when interested parties will be able to view the new buildings and find out more about the school.
“We are creating an environment where we can prepare our learners to lead productive lives,” says MDA principal Fred van der Merwe. “Our aim is to invest in the future of these learners to enable them to make a difference in society from an early age.”
The new building is situated at the Resource, Equipping and Training (RET) Centre on the corner of Geyser and Fourie Streets in Mokopane. While security and access control ensures a safe environment, the school will now be able to expand threefold.
The school was founded in 2006 by Ps. Thomas and Minda Marshall from Destiny Alive Family Church. “To have our own school here at the RET Centre is a dream years in the making,” says Thomas Marshall, adding that the school is part of a vision to continue to make a difference in the lives of Mokopane’s youth.
“This is only phase one, long-term plans are underway to expand further and to continue investing in the education of this town,” he says, adding that we, as a community, have a responsibility to equip our children to live life and not just to make a living.
MDA has ten qualified teachers as well as several teacher assistants and offers education for Grade 1-12 along with additional programs to improve reading (Lab-on-Line) and mathematics. The new building will provide learners with a media centre and science lab to further their knowledge. The school also offers sports, including soccer, gymnastics and MiniChess to ensure well-rounded learners.
MDA has also introduced the Cambridge international senior qualification, making it the only private school in the Mokopane-area to offer this sought-after curriculum.
“As a school which follows Christian values, we will continue to work hand-in-hand with parents to enable children to make a difference in their community,” says Van der Merwe. “Cambridge qualifications have a proven reputation for being an excellent preparation for university, employment and life beyond.”
The school will be hosting a special Open Day on 23 June 2017. For more information or to make an appointment to visit the school on the open day, please MDA during school hours on 015 491 2049 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
