Schools

The participation of schools is of utmost importance and applications to become part of the two year programme are subjected to a strict selection process. Successful applicants attend an information session and enter into a contract with the Media24 Rachel's Angels Trust. This ensures full support and a pledge to allow the positive influence of the programme to spread to the entire school body and its respective community. The commitment and support of the school's principal and senior management are essential for this to happen.

Schools newly entered receive empowerment shares in Media24 Phutuma Nathi and MultiChoice Welkom Yizani, while schools participating in repeat terms receive a decreased number of shares for each period.

Four new schools entered the 2012/13 cycle, and all excelled academically in the final examinations for 2013.

The Media24 Rachel's Angels Trust assessed participating schools and provided them with the development of predetermined skills. This included leadership training for principals, and personal development training for teachers (the Seven Habits of Highly Effective people, accredited course).
