Njabulo Nxumalo 3rd Recipient of The Clive Hatch Education Scholarship

by | Jun 3, 2017 | Clive Hatch / Jeppe Scholarship


The Clive Hatch Scholarship is proud to confirm that Njabulo Nxumalo is the third learner from Mplumalanga to receive a scholarship to attend Jeppe High for Boys in Johannesburg.

Njabulo Nxumalo completed grade seven at the Robert Carruthers Primary School in Emalahleni at the end of 2016 and was then chosen to receive the scholarship.

Jeppe is the Oldest Public School in Johannesburg with a reputation for developing young men of character where the qualities of loyalty, honesty, integrity and friendship are considered paramount. The school is ranked amongst the top twenty High Schools in South Africa.

Clive Hatch established the Scholarship in 2011 by after he retired from active politics where he had served as the former Provincial Leader of the Democratic Alliance in Mpumalanga, a member of the Witbank City Council in 1998/99 and was then elected to the Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature serving for ten years, eight of them as Leader of the Opposition.

Throughout his adult life Clive has aimed to do things that will “help to make a difference” and now that he has retired from the corporate world and from active politics he has decided that the greatest opportunity he can offer is to provide a sound education for young people, he therefore established an education scholarship.

He outlines the scholarship as follows:..

“the Clive Hatch Scholarship Fund has been established to assist financially disadvantaged boys of all races from the Mpumalanga Province who despite difficult and challenging circumstances have shown a will to succeed once given an opportunity. Without this scholarship the scholar may never have had the opportunity for a quality education. He now has the chance to attend Tsessebe House at Jeppe High School for Boys which is considered to be one of the top twenty boys’ schools in South Africa”.
