The purpose of the SAHETI Alumni Association is to foster a spirit of loyalty and to promote the general welfare of the school. The Alumni Association exists to support the school’s goals, and to strengthen the ties between alumni, the school, and the greater community.
Over the past few years, the SAHETI Alumni Association has continued to expand its efforts in reconnecting with alumni from all decades. SAHETI now has over 2,300 alumni living in all four corners of the globe; working in every type of profession imaginable. Being an Alumnus/a offers the benefits of accessing a network of career professionals and mentors; social development activities such as fundraisers; and most importantly, remaining true to your roots and in touch with your Alma Mater.
The Alumni Association is currently involved in approximately 10 events annually (and growing) including networking opportunities, alumni sporting events, Careers Day, reunions, and of course, our fund raisers. All are designed to allow alumni to stay in touch, network and have a good time. The Alumni Association has a presence on Facebook, Linkedln, and lnstagram where you can get the latest news on what is going on with the association. The SAHETI Alumni newsletter is available twice a year and showcases the reunions, fundraisers as well as the achievements of our alumni.
We continue to support the case for giving to the SAHETI Alumni Association. Through monetary donations or volunteerism, the generosity and commitment of alumni makes a real difference in the experiences accessible to SAHETI pupils, which only helps to grow SAHETl’s reputation as a leader in education.
The SAHETI Alumni Support Fund was established by our dedicated and passionate alumni committee members: a fund dedicated to helping children of Alumni who are in financial need, remain at SAHETI. Our SAHETI Alumni Committee members have one main goal, and that is to make a difference in a child’s future at SAHETI, and they put much time and effort into achieving this worthwhile cause.
It is important to note that the SAHETI Alumni constitution states that: “an ‘Alumnus’, ‘Alumna’ or ‘Alumni’ shall mean a student/s who attended or graduated from the school”. This means that Alumni include all children who have attended SAHETI at some point and not only those who have matriculated.
We invite you to get involved in your own way- the possibilities are endless. Don’t hesitate in sharing any ideas you might have. Whether you have time to serve as an alumni committee member, come back as a Careers Day speaker, attend an alumni fundraiser, or assist with your class reunion. Nominating a fellow alumnus/a, to be featured in our newsletters and social media platforms are also ways to stay connected.
Send us your contact details today, so that you can become a part of the network.
Thank you for your continued support to the SAHETI Alumni Association. If you have any comments or suggestions, we would be happy to hear from you.

Dear SAHETI Alumni,
Founded by a bequest in Cecil John Rhodes' Will, the Rhodes Scholarships have been awarded since 1903. From that date, nearly 1000 young people from across Southern African have been given the opportunity to further their post-graduate studies at Oxford University thanks to the Rhodes scholarship programme. Internationally, the Rhodes Scholarships are regarded as the oldest and most prestigious global scholarships; and are awarded to high potential scholars from 30 regions around the globe. The scholarships are for post-graduate degrees at Oxford University, which is ranked consistently as one of the top universities in the world, and offers magnificent opportunities for post-graduate studies.
Entrance to Oxford is highly competitive, hence the scholarships are awarded to academic high-achievers, who show leadership ability, moral force of character, empathy, and a commitment and desire to impact positively on the broader community.
100 Rhodes scholarships are awarded internationally each year, ten of which are allocated to the Southern African Constituency (comprising 9 scholarships for South Africa; and one scholarship for a student from Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia and eSwatini).

Please click here for the information for candidates.
Applications close 15 August 2019.
To our SAHETI Alumni, if you are a high-achieving young graduate, you may be a potential Rhodes Scholar. The Rhodes Scholarships are inclusive and generous, covering most of the graduate's expenses in Oxford (including tuition and College accommodation fees, a monthly stipend, one return air flight, assistance with visa and health care costs, and superb wrap-around support).
