Leadership Club

On Saturday 15 Feb 2020, the Leadership Academy welcomed 32 grade 10 learners from various schools in KZN to its Youth Leadership Development Programme at Al Falaah College.

The aims and objectives of the programme are:

  • To develop 21st century leadership skills in our youth
  • To create the desire in our youth to serve humanity
  • To develop a sustainable model to train leaders                       

The programme is in its third year and these learners joined another 60 learners. The workshops were held on Saturday mornings at Al Falaah College.

The programme commenced on 1 February 2020 with a workshop for the matriculants, and the topic was Personal Resilience. Our guest was Mrs Tasmi Bodhanya who related her inspiring journey from a life-threatening accident to recovery. This was the only session planned for the matriculants to afford them time to concentrate on their studies.

The Orientation Session was held on 15 February 2020 where our guest speaker was Mr. Abdullah Verachia from the GIBS Business School. His topic was What is happening around us: The numbers that are changing our context. This was followed by teambuilding activities for all the learners and ended with a presentation by Dr. Shamim Bodhanya on Leadership as Poetry.

Due to Covid 19, all contact sessions were stopped. Dr Shamim conducted two virtual lessons with the learners, one in August and one in September 2020 and the topics were The World of Covid 19 and Futures Thinking and Foresight.

A highlight for the programme was when Adam Mohamed, a learner from DHS, scored 100 percent in the National Computer Programming Olympiad. He also excelled in his studies throughout the year and with his excellent matric results secured admission to Harvard University.

The coordinator of the programme was Adv. Mahomed Vahed.
