Meet the Meier family

Wingu has changed our lives for the better. It has brought a structured peace of mind to the schooling atmosphere and general household. We fell around from online school systems, to cottage style school going, to private tutoring, but all at vain.  Progress was slow, frustrations were high and costs were wasted. Wingu came as though it was sent to me on angel wings. Wingu gave my kids wings. To fly or not to fly is their choice, but Wingu taught them to fly high.

Meet one of our students, Neo Malapane, and why he loves online schooling from home at Wingu Academy

My favourite thing about Wingu Academy is the Clubs.  I have a passion for anime and would like to make my own anime one day. The live classes are the best place to be, but if you miss a class there are recordings.  The teachers are fun and actually help you to get through the work.”

Read the Cowley family’s Wingu story:

When schools reopened (after lockdown), he refused to go back. So my journey to find a good online provider started. I looked at MANY options, but found that Wingu was the most helpful in answering all my questions and it offered a curriculum that is strong and accepted worldwide. Having taught in British Curriculum schools for almost 15 years myself, I know the curriculum pretty well, so I knew what questions to ask to confirm that Wingu knew what they were doing. My son is currently doing his IGCSEs with Wingu and will go on to do his A-levels with them too. Wingu has been super helpful and accommodating to all of our requests. Subject content for the IGCSE is covered thoroughly and the children are given plenty of teacher feedback and support. The platform is easy to navigate and my son has been able to take control of his own learning”

Alexandra Cowley

Read how Wingu made a difference in the lives of the Senekal family:

We wanted to give our children)  the opportunity to study abroad if they wanted to and Wingu’s British curriculum was the best option for this decision. When we started researching the different online schools, we kept in mind that both my husband and I must work and needed a platform where we weren’t responsible for teaching, but where we could keep track of classes, homework, assessments, etc. A big concern was that towards the end of 2020 our daughter had become super anxious and started struggling with social interaction at her previous school, distancing herself from her circle of friends and self-harming.  

After researching other platforms, we decided on Wingu Academy, because It has online classes where there is interaction with a teacher, and the support structure that exists for students and parents.  In retrospect we can now see that Wingu’s set-up, teachers, and classmates were the absolute ideal option for our daughter.
