Open day

Some of the staff and students at the academy.

Eagles Rising Leadership Academy, situated on the historic farm of Elandskloof at the foot of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, is a sanctuary for students from disadvantaged communities. Students who have matriculated, and show leadership potential, are selected to spend a year on the campus, with the intention of inspiring, mentoring and teaching them. The academy is a non profit organisation, and was established in 2003. The staff is led by the chief executive officer, Bruce Jackman, and they not only mentor the students, but also live side-by-side with them. Eagles Rising will be having an open day on Saturday March 9, from 10.30am to noon. For more information, contact Shani Steyn at 081 576 3913.
