Social services

ATS schools are not simply interested in the academic development of their pupils – they are not simply interested in the academic, sporting and cultural dimensions of the pupils’ lives. They are concerned for the whole child, within and beyond school, and to that degree ATS seeks to link with and support organisations that seek to educate, protect and sustain our children.

ZIMPACT
Many youngsters in school are allowed to drive but need to be reminded of their responsibilities in so doing. ZIMPACT is particularly concerned with one aspect of this.

CHILDLINE ZIMBABWE

Many youngsters in Zimbabwe face difficult situations including the fact that many parents are outside the country earning much-needed money to pay for their child’s education. Most ATS schools have a trained Counsellor within the school but sometimes it is helpful for youngsters to relate to professionals outside the school
