Today, Royal Schools includes 10 schools across five campuses, catering to over 4 500 learners and employing more than 200 members of staff. Former Royal Schools' student Refilwe Mekwa is a talented and hard-working young woman and the youngest in a family of three girls. In 2009, she moved from a small village to Pretoria to enrol in Grade 8 at Royal Schools' Princess Park College. Refilwe faced her greatest challenge in her first year, working hard to improve her English instead of speaking in Sepedi, her mother tongue. After school, she enrolled at Wits University for a Bachelor of Accounting Sciences, which she completed in 2016. She then went on to study towards a Certificate of Theory in Accounting at Wits University and is currently working as a Trainee Accountant at one of the big four auditing firms.
