– Kgosi Leruo Molotlegi

A truly African school | Sekolo sa Aforika tota

Lebone II is an 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.

At Lebone II, every child is seen 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.

Ours is a school that encourages curiosity and experimentation while following the example of some of the best educational institutions around the world.

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.

“I think Lebone II is about building a nation, about giving back to the community.”
Mme Nhlanhla Phakathi, Setswana teacher.
