My learning experience was by no means conventional throughout my five years at St Cyprian’s School. Being taught by strong, independently minded teachers encouraged me to think differently about the world. In addition to being inspired by teachers, I was nurtured by warm and loving friendships throughout my schooling at St Cyp's. These women continue to ground me to this day.

It's not a fallacy that St Cyprian’s School teaches not for school but for life; not for time but for eternity. The holistic approach to education did not only focus on academics, but also on the soft skills which exposed us to various people and situations, and in turn equipped me to seamlessly navigate spaces and situations post-high school. My time at St Cyp's was a truly global experience, something I'd liken to a junior United Nations, as I sat in classes with friends who came from around the continent and the world, and who had various perspectives on ideology and practices which we often shared, embraced, disagreed with, and were encouraged to form our own opinions of.

The five years I spent in St Cyprian’s were the best of times. For me, it was a love at first sight that did not disappoint. It lived up to its vision of “teaching not for school but for life; training not for time but for eternity”. During my stay, I was privileged to meet, learn from, interact and live with brilliant minds. It instilled in me a sense of respect, responsibility, tolerance and a spirit of excellence that continues to guide all my pursuits. I cannot imagine a situation when the St Cyprian’s ethos will not be applicable in my life and work.

There is no doubt that St Cyp’s has made me who I am today. Beyond the school curriculum, St Cyp’s exposed me to people from different parts of the world. It taught me tolerance and acceptance. I am a self-assured and confident woman today because St Cyp’s never put limitations on us because we were young girls.

UCT student

As a young, coloured, Muslim girl, St Cyprian’s School was a whole new environment to me. However, I never needed to change who I was to fit in because the school prided itself on creating strong, independent, unique women. It gave me the tools to understand the world outside of the classroom and I have continued to use these skills in all my endeavors. This school allowed me to think more openly, accept more widely and understand more deeply and it is something I am constantly grateful for.
I matriculated in 2013 and I am currently in my final year at UCT studying a Bachelor of Business Science in Finance.
