School History & Information
Mandisa Shiceka High School was established in 1995 under the auspices of Kagiso Education Crises Committee and some educators who were volunteering their services. The aim for this establishment was to accommodate learners who could not be admitted to local schools due to the high rate of learners who were seeking admission. Furthermore the intention was to offer quality teaching and learning programmes.
The school was officially opened on the 6th October 2000 by Mr. Ignatius Jacobs, the MEC for education. Mandisa Shiceka High school is a public school under the Gauteng department of Education. It is named after the late Mandisa Shiceka who was a member of the Gauteng Provincial Legislature. Dr. V.K. Joseph was officially appointed as the 1st principal of the school on August 1998.
We have a Teacher / Learner ratio of 1:30 and our school quintile is 4. The school has ±60 percent of learners whose parents are not working. Furthermore another ±20 percent of parents who are working earn below minimum wage. This situation presents a challenge were parents are not able to meet the basic needs of their children. They cannot afford to provide lunch, in a form of food or pocket money for their children.
Ensuring high level of academic excellence through quality teaching and learning through maximum participation of all stakeholders.
Our vision is to make sure that learners develop certain knowledge, values and attitudes that will ensure that when they leave school their behavior will make them responsible and independent citizens that will be productive in a global community.
The school is consistently achieving good results for the past 10 years. We have been titled as having the best chess team for our district. We also have won a trophy and 2 football kits in the Silver Stars Competition for under 16.
