Started by Fr. Larry and Fr. Peter Doherty, with funds from the Salesian Mission, Belgium, the Bosco Study Centre caters yearly to approximately 300 students who have dropped out of the formal school system and wish to upgrade their academic subjects for the O Level Exams.
The Bosco Study Centre was originally set up in 1993 offering students the chance to ‘upgrade’ their end of school results, to fulﬁll minimum entry requirements for universities and colleges. In 2011 the centre also targeted Form 3 because there was a need to improve their examination grades and acquire credits so as to proceed to the next level of education. The Bosco Study Centre continues to offer low cost ‘upgrading’ courses in Maths, English, Biology, and Physics in Form 5. In Form 3 courses offered are English, Maths, Geography, Siswati, Religious Education, Science and Acc/Business Studies. The Centre offer IT, Secretarial and Accounting & Finance in Business and Computer Centre recruiting, in six to twelve month courses. All courses are recognised by City & Guilds, the Institute for Commercial Management UK and the London Centre of Marketing or the Association of Accounting Technicians. The Business courses have shown tremendous popularity, even in its third year and raised considerable attention in local newspapers and radio stations.
