KMF Junior Scholars are selected after they complete the recruitment process during their Grade 6 year. Up to 2014 we selected no more than 30 primary school scholars to become Junior scholars and aimed to accept 15 of these scholars to become KMF Senior Scholars. In 2015, out of 244 applications we selected 42 Junior scholars to accommodate the increase in applications of deserving young people. Our scholars come from a wide area in and around Cape Town, such as Mitchells Plain, Khayelitsha, Sea Point, etc.
Junior Scholars attend tutoring classes every Saturday, (except for public holidays, long weekends and school holiday periods) from 9h00 am until 13h00. This takes a huge commitment from the scholars and their families but the scholars are receiving vital information which assists in filling the gaps from possible poor education they received to date, as well as preparing them for high school and a higher standard of education than what they are accustomed to.
There are very strict rules attached to this programme, such as any scholar who misses more than 3 classes within the year without a valid excuse or having arranged it with the tutor prior to the tutoring session, or not doing homework for three times, is expelled from the programme. This programme does not only teach the children academics, but we also encourage and groom children to have persistence and to take responsibility for their own actions and their futures.
