GOTS ready to spread its wings in 2022
You only grow stronger if you have endured tough times.
And the last two years have indeed been rough for many people and businesses.
Having survived two years of uncertainty, Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) International School is ready to spread its wings in 2022.
“The school is growing,” said co-founder Dr Veronica Shepherdson. “We have been around since 2017, and we are getting more and more enquiries each week.
“The last two years were tough, but we managed to retain our scholars, apart from those who moved overseas or relocated to other parts of the country.
“We have had minimal turnover with our staff as well. Those who left were due to medical reasons, or had moved out of state.
“It is this foundation that has stabilised the school and will help us to grow further.”
Dr Shepherdson said the family-like atmosphere at GOTS International School is another advantage as everyone helps out when needed.
Meanwhile, Dr Shepherdson said GOTS International School would start its Entreprenology programme next year.
“We realise the younger generation does not want to work for others. So, this programme will help teach them how to become entrepreneurs,” said Dr Shepherdson, who has a PhD from the International University of Entreprenology.
“It will be available to secondary scholars, and complement our ongoing FinancialSmart programme that teaches all our scholars about financial literacy.”
She said not all are cut out to be entrepreneurs, but having the right tools was an advantage – even if they go on to work for others.
