At College, the pursuit of academic excellence forms an indelible part of our culture. We are equally aware that our role as a leading academic institution need not be limited to College alone. Education plays an invaluable role in community-building – and so we aim to extend our ethos to schools around our community.
Many students traditionally encounter challenges in the fields of Maths, Physical Science, and English. These subjects are also critical to development and academic success. There is also a skills shortage in the scientific and mathematical fields – and programmes like these serve South Africa at large in growing these abilities in learners and teachers.
The Khanyisa team is alive to the fact that the educational needs of our community are not limited to school-goers. As such, Khanyisa ‘s initiatives are evolving to include adult and online educational opportunities. Maritzburg College provides the educational resources and tools to help children and adults from around the country – and the world – to develop their skills.
The course materials created for the College Moodle and webinars support digital learning. College is partnering with local businesses and enterprises to offer training in Pietermaritzburg and surrounds. This includes working with the MCOBA network, who generously give of their time in support of this worthwhile project.

“Being part of Khanyisa was an incredible experience. I learnt new tactics of tackling the subject through my phenomenal facilitator, Mrs Mthembe, which enables my learners to obtain 100% pass rate in English and two subject distinctions.”

“The Khanyisa programme helped me improve my marks from level 2 in Mathematics and Physicals and level 6 in English. In all 3 of these subjects, I saw a great improvement. Mathematics went up to a level 3, Physical Science to a level 4 and English to a level. I’m grateful to the programme for assisting me.”
At College, we are proud of the work Khanyisa does in service to our community. Education empowers and these initiatives have the potential to change lives and make a difference to our communities.
