BGCSA’s core focus is
on academic success, and thus Power Hour (or 60 minutes of homework help each
day) is the cornerstone of the education programming. Design Squad Global, Reading Eggs, and other
programs compliment the homework help and tutoring the Club offers.
Soccer, basketball and netball provide Club Members with the
opportunity to develop fitness, a
positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the
environment and social and interpersonal skills. Our Arts & Culture programs are also
flourishing with drama and dance extremely popular.
BGCSA runs the Youth of the Year
helping young people become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for
participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs.
Club activities also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for
planning, decision-making, contributing to the Club and community and
celebrating the diverse, national heritage of South Africa.
