A truly South African school | Sekolo sa Aforika Borwa tota
Lebone II is a South African school with a royal heritage, grounded in Setswana culture and shaped by a consciousness of our African context. It is in this spirit that we celebrate difference, and are proud of a student and staff body that is truly diverse.
What makes us unique is our Royal Bafokeng heritage, our service to the community and our approach to education. Lebone II aims to provide the inspiration, education and opportunities that positively influence the Royal Bafokeng Nation and the world.
Our learning environment is dynamic, innovative and creative. We equip our students with the skills, tools and mindfulness necessary for them to complete their academic careers and make a positive contribution to their communities, South Africa and the rest of the world.
A holistic offering | Re neela thuto e e akaretsang tsotlhe
At Lebone II, every child is known and taken care of. We focus on all aspects of our students’ well-being, combining academic excellence with a comprehensive cultural and sporting programme, as well as pastoral care. Our excellent teaching and boarding facilities further enhance this, and the school allows children to learn, live and grow in an uplifting environment.
Achieving academic excellence | Dithuto tsa maemo a kwa godimo
Lebone II is a research-driven school where high-quality learning programmes are developed in line with international best practices. Ours is a school that encourages curiosity and experimentation while following the example of some of the best educational institutions around the world. We are focused on achieving excellence and our alumni have a strong track record of success. Lebone II’s staff members are an exceptional group of experienced education specialists dedicated to improving education in our school, community and country.
Our values are essential and enduring guiding principles that define how we treat others and the life we wish to create. | Melawana ya rona ya botlhokwa e e re kaelang, e re lemosa tsela ya gore re tshole ba bangwe jang; le ka botshelo jo re batlang go bo aga.
Our values shape the purpose and reality of our school. We not only communicate them – we live and teach them. In addition to equipping our students with skills that will provide them with a solid academic foundation, we teach them our values to foster a sense of belonging at Lebone II, where they support and have respect for one another and the broader school community.
An inspiring campus | Lefelo la boithuto le le nonofatsang
Our school was built to foster a sense of community. We designed the school to take on the shape of a village, where departments are defined as neighbourhoods and the space between is communal and social. We believe that everyone at Lebone II belongs with us and can be uplifted by us, and we welcome them compassionately.
Part of our community | Re maloko a morafe wa rona
Lebone II was founded to inspire, uplift and serve our local community. We have an opportunity to improve the education landscape in and around Phokeng, and we serve as a resource for other local schools. We’re keenly conscious of our impact on our community, and our students and educators are deliberate in initiating community development and outreach programmes that ensure we help our community and remain in touch with its needs.
A home at Lebone | O na le legae mo Lebone
Lebone II College’s boarding facilities are a home away from home, for students from Grade 7 upwards. Our apartment-style boarding houses provide students and staff members with comfortable living and communal spaces, and students enjoy a structured, supervised and safe environment to complete their education. Lebone II is not a traditional boarding school – there’s a concerted effort to ensure that students are appropriately engaged through sporting activities, and community and environmental initiatives. The boarding houses have committees, spearheaded by the students, that oversee sporting, academic, cultural and community service activities. These activities, which include trips, form part of the boarding schedule that students adhere to over weekends. We place a high importance on community service in particular, to sensitise our students to the needs of their society.
