SACS Opportunity Fund

SACS Junior is committed to transforming the racial demographic within our school.  The Opportunity Fund aims to offer at least one place per year to a deserving boy from a disadvantaged background, whose family would otherwise be unable to afford a SACS education.

The fund currently supports 8 boys at the School. Our first three candidates completed their Junior School career successfully and have settled in very well at SACS High School. In the 2017 financial year, the Fund received significant contributions from individuals and corporations alike.

We are always extremely grateful for any donation to the Opportunity Fund, no matter how small. For example, a debit order of R100 a month helps us to provide a daily Tuck Shop meal to some of our bursary holders.  These financial contributions, along with the existing Bursary Fund and the support from the PTA, go towards the following:

  • School fees
  • Academic Support
  • Uniform: We will be able to kit out our current bursary holders with uniforms and/or sports kit where necessary. This is something which gives them a great sense of pride and belonging.
  • Swimming lessons if required
  • Transport to and from school and sporting events
  • Camps:  The Grade Five boys attend a 2 day camp in first term, the Grade Six boys go on a three-day camp in the first term and the Grade Seven boys go to Durban for a week in the second term. The fees for these camps are not included in the annual school fees.

Apart from the financial support, the School also offers its counselling services to the bursary holders and their families. The School Psychologist, meets with the boys on a regular basis to assist them and their families with the adjustment to the new environment. The SACS Education Support Unit also monitors each boy’s academic, social and emotional well-being on a continuous basis.


In support of the transformation agenda, SACS received a very generous gift from the Hugo-Hamman Trust which has established scholarships for boys from disadvantaged backgrounds.  One scholarship is now available per year for a boy in each year from Grade R through Grade 7. The Hugo-Hamman Scholarship will be offered to South African boys who are in terms of current definitions black, or whose parents define themselves as either African or Coloured, or more generally, “people of colour”.

Scholarships are based on need and therefore will be offered to deserving cases where, without outside financial support, the family would be unable to send their boy to SACS.        

When the boarding school re-opens to boys in every year, the scholarship will include the costs of boarding. Limited boarding places are currently only available for boys in Grades Six or Seven.  


Applications are open for applications for the Hugo-Hamman Philanthropy Grade R Scholarship for 2019 and should be made by the end of March 2018.

Applications for bursaries in other grades may be made and will be considered based on whether further funding has been made available to the School. These applications should be made by 22 June for consideration during the third term.

All Opportunity Fund managed scholarships are allocated on the basis of availability, merit and financial need.
