About Lebone II College

Lebone II – College of the Royal Bafokeng was established by former Kgosi Mollwane Lebone Boikanyo Molotlegi in 1997. He came from a long line of powerful ancestors who dedicated their lives to the Royal Bafokeng Nation and were committed to uplifting the Bafokeng people.

This dream has been pursued by the present kgosi, Kgosi Leruo Tshekedi Molotlegi, who has a passion for realising excellence in education for the Bafokeng people in this region and beyond.

Located in South Africa’s North West province, Lebone II is a leading independent preparatory and secondary school for boys and girls from South Africa and the rest of Africa.

What makes Lebone II unique is its heritage, its service to the community, and its approach to education. Lebone II aims to provide the inspiration, education and opportunities that positively influence the Royal Bafokeng Nation and, eventually, the world.

“I think Lebone II is about building a nation, about giving back to the community.”

- Mme Nhlanhla Phakathi, Setswana teacher

Lebone II is a school rooted in an extraordinary African culture, the Royal Bafokeng Nation, and positioned towards a global future. It is a school that encourages curiosity and experimentation, while following the example of some of the best educational institutions around the world.

Lebone II is a research-driven school, where high-quality learning programmes are developed in line with international best practices. Simultaneously, our curriculum subscribes to certain national norms, enabling us to stay closely connected to our approximately 60 Royal Bafokeng partner schools. We also serve as a resource for many other schools in our community. There is a dire and urgent need for improved rural education in South Africa, and at Lebone II we have a very real opportunity to make dramatic and positive changes in this area.

“There’s a sense of belonging here. If you belong, you’re happy and you can be yourself.”

- Petra Marais, Principal, Lower School

English is the medium of instruction at Lebone II, although Setswana is given equal status as we understand the critical importance of learning early concepts in the mother tongue. The language of instruction from Grade 4 to Grade 12 is English, with Setswana being taught as a second language. The school is affiliated to ISASA (Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa). It is a school of independent thinkers and achievers that has the feeling of home. This is why so many graduates wish to return, either as teachers or in other roles, to contribute both to the school and the nation.

Part of our community | Re maloko a morafe wa rona

At Lebone II, we talk about community. To us, community represents our past and our future, and the place where our learners and educators meet. Community defines the Bafokeng Nation. It is through both forward-thinking and awareness of the role of the Bafokeng within both South Africa and the world that the Bafokeng exist as they do, and these attitudes have shaped Lebone II.

We designed our school to take on the shape of a village, where departments are defined as neighbourhoods and the space between them 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.

Our values, as a part of the Lebone II community, are very important to us. They shape the purpose and reality of our school.
