Welcome to HBIS & chelo!
CHELO stands for Children of Hout Bay Education and Learning Opportunity. Established in 2007, this bursary programme facilitates the inclusion of students from previously disadvantaged communities of Hout Bay into HBIS. There are currently 11 students, from PYP1 through to IGCSE1, enrolled at the school, who are supported by the CHELO programme. While HBIS, through IES, donates over R1 million per year to cover these 11 bursaries, CHELO offers the bursary students and families at HBIS the crucial mentorship, educational equipment, extra-murals, stationery, school uniforms, homework support and workshops they need.
Most of the funds for this programme are raised by private sponsors or donors in conjunction with our highly anticipated annual fundraising event to be held this year on Friday, December 6th 2019.
Through CHELO, the families who attend our school and wider community recognize the importance of providing educational opportunities to our new South Africans – our future global citizens. As South Africa transforms, we have an obligation to help our youth, both the haves and have-nots, walk with each other to better understand the cultural, economic and personal diversity in our neighbourhoods. I sincerely hope all students, parents and staff commit to playing an active and ongoing role in the CHELO Programme.
