inspiring-critical-thinking-through-the-arts The Zenex Foundation sponsored the attendance of 55 enthusiastic Grade 12 learners from 13 schools across the country at the National Schools Festival in Grahamstown. This was the learner component of the National Arts Festival where learners spent four days from 12 – 16 July 2015, immersed in various manifestations of the arts and the English language. The Schools Festival is a valuable learning experience for all learners in terms of the exposure to English Literacy and the arts.
building-evaluation-scholarship-and-capacityThe Zenex Foundation hosted a one-day Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) conference on the 2nd July 2015 at the Glenhove Conference Centre, Melrose. The conference was one in a series of conferences, held in partnership with Stellenbosch University and the University of Cape Town. Zenex is interested in promoting evaluation amongst stakeholders and increasing the pool of evaluators.


The Zenex Foundation commissioned a research study in 2013 to analyse various projects and initiatives that support school development, and teaching and learning in South African schools. The research culminated in the establishment of an extensive database of close to 400 research reports, articles and studies on school interventions in South Africa from 2005. The database informed the development of a Decision-making Framework at the Zenex Foundation, which the Foundation applies to inform programme development. The research study included an analysis of:

• Academic scholarship on learner performance,
• School intervention studies in South Africa,
• Project and Programme evaluations, and
• Government and NGO sector programmes.
