The value in managing bursaries :
In partnership with Penryn College, Penreach is able to manage large-scale recruitment campaigns in different regions, ensuring the best chance of schooling success for a relatively large group of scholars. Due to its established operational, management and financial processes, Penreach can easily manage the social, logistical, academic, financial and other aspects related to scholar well-being and progress. Many schools on their own do not possess the additional capacity to ensure that children adjust well and are emotionally secure within their new environment to perform to the best of their ability. This is why the relationship between Penreach and Penryn College has enabled no less than 20 children to be enrolled on bursaries and scholarships over the past 2 years. The continued academic progress, leadership development and participation in sport and school life of these children is evidence of the success of the programme.
