A scholar’s journey with the Spirit Educattion Foundation doesn’t simply end once their high school career and scholarship is over. All graduating matric scholars are enrolled in the Spirit Foundation Alumni Society and longitudinal tracking is ongoing via social media, meetings and functions. The Alumni Society exists as a channel to create networking opportunities and encouragement amongst the alumni, as well as opportunities for the alumni to provide mentorship and passing on of skills, knowledge and encouragement to our Spirit Education Foundation scholars. While a Spirit Education Foundation scholarship is not one that needs to be paid back, past scholars are encouraged to support the Spirit Education Foundation in some way in the future, in honour of the opportunity of the good education that they have received. The Alumni Society recognises that every past Spirit Foundation Scholar has something of value to give – whether it be their time, ideas, network connections or financial support. With over 400 scholars enrolled since inception in 1994, the Spirit Foundation Alumni Society is a powerful base of Spirit Education Foundation champions, and is something for our scholars to aspire to after completing their schooling.
