The Ikageng branch also prioritises the well-being and personal development for our learners and tutors through various educational excursions.

 Excursion to the Engineering for Girls event at the North West University (NWU)

On the 24th of March 2018, the branch took 75 female learners with interest in engineering to attend the Femmengineering event held at the NWU over a weekend. We are happy to be cultivating young engineers at our branch and wow them with hands-on scientific experiences.

South African Responsible Gambling Foundation (SARGF) Awareness

In making sure our learners acquire valuable life skills information, through our partnership with Shine Solutions, they brought to our branch the SARGF to create awareness to learners on responsible gambling through a comic theatrical play. The hall was filled with laughter and joy whilst our learners also grasped useful lifelong education.

 NWU Mini Open Day

NWU invited our top performing 2018 matriculants for an interactive and hands-on Mini Open Day along with other top performing matrics from schools across Tlokwe municipality. This opportunity gave learners insight on the prerequisites for tertiary enrollment in various career prospects upon completing matric.

 Children Radio Foundation Dialogues

We have ventured into a new partnership with Children Radio Foundation (CRF) for the benefit of our learners to freely express and engage in community dialogues in a constructive way. This is through a local community radio called Aganang’s FM's "Ghetto Genius" slot for young reporters. A total of ten learners have signed up. We are proud to see our Ikamvanites taking active charge in making thought provoking, inspiring and youth centered programmes for their local community.
