A-STUDENT: Dilshaad

Last year, TLC achieved a 92 percent matric pass rate.

Top student Dilshaad Adonis, 18, who is currently studying Accounting at Stellenbosch University, obtained seven distinctions.

Yesterday, Dilshaad said shutting the school down would be a blow to Manenberg.

“It makes no sense, government can’t watch and do nothing,” she says.

“The Leadership College deserves contributions in order to keep the school open. The school makes a tremendous change in our community and what will happen to the learners currently at the school?”

A parent, who asked not to be named, says her child started Grade 8 at the school this year.

“Parents are worried sick as it would be difficult to get their children into schools now,” says the parent.
