Community

As a Non-Profit Company Silvermine Academy is committed to the lift-as-you-rise principle. We believe that wellbeing comes from generosity and investment in our local communities and the natural world. This principle applies to our students, our natural setting and the people around us.

Our Community and Environmental Pledges for 2022

Support owl conservation

In support of our logo's inspiration we pledge to donate R10 of every branded item sold to owl conservation. We have also adopted an Owl for it's rehabilitation period.

Plant every tree we print

We pledge to plant a tree for every tree we print. Using a special calculator we are able to get an accurate number of trees we owe. We will then propagate that number of indigenous trees and plant them in the area.

Go grid-lite

As of 2022 we will be going Grid-lite. This means that 2/3 of our electricity will be generated by solar panels around the school. Combined with inverters and batteries we will have a stable power supply even during load shedding.
