School of Hard Knocks uses rugby to help young people improve their well-being and make better choices when it comes to risky behaviour, education and their career paths. For school children at risk of dropping out of mainstream education we offer weekly life skills through rugby coaching and mentoring. Their philosophy is to offer emotional support and physical challenges to develop learners inner resources so that they grow in their ability to self assess, manage their emotions, and make better choices when it comes to education, risky behaviour and their career paths.
Support is offered for up to three years to improve behaviour, attendance and attainment. SOHK’s schools programme is a 2 year intervention, working with groups of around 20 pupils from G10 through until they finish G12 and complete their matric. The pupils will be chosen by the school and will typically be the ‘hardest to reach’ young people. We will work with them for half a day every week, delivering rugby training, classroom sessions on career paths and mental health experts will deliver weekly 1:1s for each pupil.
