The lecturers at AIMSSEC serve as role models in schools in their quest to encourage the learners to pursue careers in STEM. AIMSSEC joined Masiyile High School in celebrating their Class of 2015. Located in Site B Khayelitsha in the Western Cape Province, Masiyile is one of the oldest schools in Khayelitsha, having an enrolment of over 1300 learners every year. The guest speaker for the valedictory function on this day was AIMSSEC lecturer Sinobia Kenny, who spoke to the learners about the importance of the mathematical sciences on the African continent.
She challenged and inspired the learners to defy all odds and run for excellence in their examinations and future dreams. MacDonald Chapwanya, also a lecturer at AIMSSEC, led the proceedings as programme director for the event. AIMSSEC supports the principal, Mr. S. Sodlaka, the school governing body and the entire staff with providing the learners with a platform to support people, build dreams and transform lives.
