About Our Logo

The Valued Citizens Initiative logo was designed by learners from Ikageng Primary School, the first school to be part of Valued Citizens Initiative’s endeavours.

The colours used in the logo are those of the South African national flag. The reason for the use of these colours is to express our pride in being South African citizens.

The yellow circle symbolises the unification of the nation and also portrays the never-ending spirit of Ubuntu.

In the centre of the logo are two colours - red (left) and green (right), shaped to form a heart. The heart expresses the need for caring, sharing and most of all LOVING.

The red coloured figure on the left represents parents. The green coloured figure on the right represents educators. The blue figure in the middle signifies a learner. Holistically, the logo emphasises how parents and educators are needed to facilitate the growth of children.

At Olievenhoutbosch Secondary School, the principal is grateful as she was used to have a tremendous drop out of learners just because they did not have access to this vital right to an Identity Document and some felt at risk as foreigners.
