“Thank you for giving me an opportunity to gain work experience at Motherwell Centre. I have learnt leadership skills and how to react in a given situation. I hope to have the opportunity to return to Motherwell Centre to broaden my knowledge about the business.” - Lutho Thomas, Lawhill Maritime Centre Bursary recipient

Simon’s Town School’s Lawhill Maritime Centre was established in 1995, and introduces scholars to the maritime industry in their last three years of secondary schooling. The industry focused education improves the school leaver’s chance of finding employment. To date, more than 300 young South Africans have passed through the Lawhill programme, many of them pursing successful careers in the maritime industry, both ashore and at sea, while others have gone on to make their mark in other industries.

In partnership with Simon’s Town Lawhill Maritime Centre, Capital Land facilitates the sponsorship of a bursary for deserving candidates who originate from communities surrounding the shopping centres under their management.
