The Journey to MYP at SOS-HGIC

Rationale for transition to MYP

SOS-HGIC is committed to becoming a school that offers the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) for the two years prior to the IB Diploma Programme (DP) that we have offered since 1993. There are two related reasons for doing this:

  1. To allow us to focus on providing to our students the best possible preparation for the DP and beyond
  2. To create a coherent four-year academic education for our students with one consistent educational philosophy

The school needs to go through a process of candidacy and then authorisation in order to offer the MYP. Our application for candidacy will be lodged early in 2018, teaching will begin in August 2018, and full authorisation will coincide with our first cohort of students emerging from the programme in 2020.

SOS-Hermann Gmeiner International College

Principal's Welcome Message

Dear Friends,

I hope our website provides an effective window into the life of SOS-Hermann Gmeiner International College (SOS-HGIC). Through this medium, we would like to communicate who we are and what we do to prospective parents and all who wish to learn about our school.

Principal_MrOfeiSOS-HGIC provides a holistic and transformational education. The outcome of the education we provide tells the full story and serves as good evidence of its effectiveness. The foundations of the education process in SOS-HGIC is provided by the school's motto: "Knowledge in the Service of Africa" and guides the acquisition of knowledge and the necessary skills to be good enquirers, risk takers, and team players who communicate effectively and who generate innovative ideas and solutions to the plethora of challenges confronting our continent today. The knowledge gained by learners in school is put to use in the community, through our Creativity Action Service programme, while new knowledge is acquired in the process. Students put a lot of thinking into planning and executing their actions which develops in them critical thinking and problem solving skills useful in their future lives. In all their actions, they are guided by the principles of fairness, consider each action carefully and are always mindful of its consequences. Read More
