our mission


MRP Foundation Schools is a holistic education programme that focuses on four key areas: parent and community involvement; school management and leadership; learner development and educator development. The model is designed for learners to unlock and develop their full potential through quality education including: Physical Education, Maths, Science, English, Life Skills and Environmental Awareness programmes. 

By partnering with school leadership and management, educators, parents, the community and learners of each school; the programme aims to sustainably transform schools, prepare learners for the future and empower school management and educators. The model is active in selected primary school and high school clusters from low-income communities across South Africa and to ensure the sustainability of the programme, holistic elements are introduced in annual phases. 

You can implement Physical Education in your schools. Download the Physical Education Manual to learn how.
