A very big THANK YOU to Schneider-Electric – the global energy specialists – from a very excited group of Ivory Park Ikamvanites as staff from Schneider-Electric spent the afternoon with our learners and awarded awesome gifts to our top attending Ikamva-KNIGHTS!

After a presentation on Schneider-Electric and some insight into the multitude of career opportunities available to young motivated learners leaving school, we heard from Schneider-Electric staff who shared their personal career stories and experiences in the working world.

It’s easy to see that Schneider-Electric is a company specialising in energy management as the energy levels grew quite palpably as awards were made for learners based on their levels of attendance over the past year.  Learners with the best attendance each received scientific calculators and a stationery pack in recognition of their commitment and dedication. Those learners who made the minimum 75% attendance criteria also received very cool stationery packs for their efforts too. 

What’s more, Schneider-Electric purchased Mindset teaching DVDS to help with revision across a range of school subjects in grades 10-12. These DVDs will be sure to come in extremely handy as learners try to get to grips with sections of the curriculum they are struggling with. We look forward to the queues of learners lining up to work with the DVDs as they seek to improve their understanding.

Once again… a very big debt of gratitude to Schneider-Electric for a memorable afternoon and for enabling us to recognise the dedication of learners who truly are ‘taking their future’s into their hands’.
