Mrs Ashra Norton explains how The Leadership College strives to develope Leaders of the future and teach values through respect and confidence. Ashra Norton is the founder of the school.
As a resident of Manenberg she attended the Silverstream Primary and High School. When she completed her schooling career, she applied to university to complete a degree in Pharmaceuticals. However, because she came from a very poor background, her parents did not have the funds to send her to complete her course. At the time the government only gave bursaries to coloured and black students for teaching.
M. Saliegh Richards, a Grade 11 leader at The Leadership College Manenberg, departed on Sunday the 20th September 2015 to compete for a spot at one of Belgium's top football clubs. M. Saliegh is an avid sportsman excelling in sporting codes such as Soccer, Rugby and Athletics.

On the 4th September 2015, our leaders embarked on their second Interfaith Camp to Bloublommetjies Camping Site in Wellington. The camp seeks contribute to the alleviation of religious prejudices and promoting religions embracing and leading harmonious lives. Our leaders were accompanied by Mrs Davidson. They form part of an organization called the Cape Town Interfaith Initiative. The schools which form part of this Initiative is Herzlia, Spine Road High School, Rylands High School, Oude Molen Technical School, Langa High School and Garden Commercial High School.
On the 2nd September 2015, TLC participated in the Regional Eskom Expo for young Scientists at the University of Cape Town. Our Head Boy Lonwabo Nkonzo and Abdus-shakoor Kippie both received bronze for their project and Glen Mpho Makhoba received a gold medal along with the award for the Best Male Project. Amongst the competition were 44 other participating schools including Bishops Diocesan College, Rondebosch Boys High School, Wynberg Boys' High School, Herzlia, Herschel Girls High school and many other top schools in Cape Town.
Despite the fact that TLC competed with the lack of resources at their school, they managed to get the above mentioned awards. Glen Mpho Makhoba will represent the school and also Cape Town at the Science Festival taking place in Johannesburg in October 2015. Thereafter, students will be chosen to represent South Africa at the science expo abroad.
