Sasol Inzalo Foundation announce its partnership with John Orr Technical High School to create an academy of excellence

The Sasol Inzalo Foundation has partnered with the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) and John Orr Technical High School on a ‘Schools Improvement For Excellence’ initiative.

The project will offer excellence in teaching and learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and beyond, thus delivering school leavers effectively prepared to succeed and excel in education, training and employment in world of work.

According to Mpho Letlape, managing director, Sasol Inzalo Foundation, the principal of John Orr Technical High School, Mr J Venter, was concerned about the decreasing credibility of technical education and in April 2010 approached the Gauteng MEC for Education for assistance in repositioning the school to its former glory.

At the same time, the GDE was on a drive to improve the performance of education institutions in Gauteng, and was looking for partners for an initiative of this magnitude. Such an initiative is in line with the Sasol Inzalo Foundation’s goal of significantly and sustainably improving STEM education.

“With this in mind, the John Orr project was brought to life. It is a well-governed, effectively managed, cost effective educational institution that will embody a model for adaptation and replication. We are proud to be associated with the John Orr project” says Letlape.

A further goal is to make the John Orr a hub for non-students of the school, from an extended catchment area, in preparing them for further studies by offering parallel out of school programmes, targeting talented youth with potential.

Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return and cost reductions. Words such as "believe", "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "seek", "will", "plan", "could", "may", "endeavour" and "project" and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements.

By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 on Form 20-F filed on 12 October 2012 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
