Lucky (Siyakha Excellence Program, Gauteng, 2016)

Posted by Cathy Hastie on

Lucky attended our Siyakha Excellence Programme in Gauteng in 2016. Lucky achieved in such a way that he can only be destined for great things. He shot the lights out in both Mathematics and Physical Science in obtaining 97% and 93% respectively. We have no words to describe how proud we are of him and can only say that his hard work definitely paid off. We have heard from Lucky and this is what he had to say...


"I am Sibongiseni Lucky ... and one of the learners to be fortunate enough to have been a part of the 2016 iSabelo Excellence Learning Program. I am currently doing my third year BSc Industrial Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand.

It all started when a classmate and I were chosen to be part of the program while doing matric, little did I know it was an opportunity for me to go beyond what I knew academically. The program provided us with an opportunity to excel as well as expand our knowledge in Mathematics and Science (and Accounting for those who were doing commerce). The learning program provided me with a platform, an encouraging and challenging environment with the opportunity to develop my Mathematical and Science skills to analyse, alter, adjust as well as solve problems as a free self-thinking individual. It is through iSabelo that I finally came to realise my true potential, because of the outstanding tutors. The program gave us a home, that is a place to explore and grow academically. I'm grateful to the iSabelo tutors who created a free, challenging yet mind building learning atmosphere for us. I personally feel I wouldn't have achieved an A+ in both Maths and Science without their assistance and I'm grateful for that.  The fortunate are those who get an opportunity to be part of this program. One of the most blessings I got was a sponsor I did not apply for. After my Matric, the iSabelo program provided me with a Siyakha Education Trust bursary. It is through the program that today I'm proudly a Siyakha bursar. To the iSabelo Program, I will forever be grateful."
