Inception

As part of The Walk Centre’s wider plan to enhance opportunity in Hilton through education, Alex and Patricia’s next vision was to construct the Walk Centre primary school, which the pre-primary school students will attend after graduation. A new independent feeder school would enable the Centre to avoid having to pay for eight years of school fees at nearby government schools whilst maintaining its core values and mission statement. The Walk Centre primary school would offer free education to children from the Hilton slum, whilst subsidising the running costs of the school through modest fees paid by children from wealthier backgrounds to create a high-quality, highachieving centre for academic excellence. This would also avoid relying on external organisations and donors to fund the school, ensuring it will become a self-sustaining educational institution.
