SOKO District’s central Town Hall space is buzzing with activity until Friday, 31 December 2021. Hybrid Schooling platform, Thought Africa has set up an interactive space which is the ideal place for parents – and kids of course - looking for more than just mainstream school.
At Thought Africa, thinkers aged 7 to 18 years are exposed to modern technologies, sustainable living practises and engage in a self-directed learning journey facilitated by teachers and Thought Leaders.
Says Joel Kaplan, Founder and CEO of Thought Africa: “SOKO District has many synergies with Thought Africa – both brands challenge norms and are dedicated to doing things differently in their respective arenas. It made perfect sense to launch our Hybrid School at SOKO District. What we offer is a mixture of online and in-person schooling. We promote 21st-century thinking skills, using technology and sustainable living. Some of our technologies include 3D Printing, Electronics, Robotics & Coding and in addition, we use Oculus VR technology.”

About SOKO District
You’ll find our first SOKO District space at the centre of all the action in Rosebank Mall. It’s the first of many come and what a good place to start – in the bustling heart of the Jozi. This location resonates with one of the SOKO District pillar principles of creating a regenerative space, a space that encourages constant movement towards fresh ideas.
We are 100% South African-owned, and we keep our carefully selected shop-fitting materials local as far as possible. Sustainable sourcing and recyclability also play pivotal roles in our processes – from our exclusive and patented mechanisms to our electronic and lighting systems.
Technology is a vehicle for improving the quality and sustainability of the community we live in. Our drive towards innovation – the continual hunt for solutions towards improvement – puts us in a unique position to supply SOKO District retailers with the best and latest technologies. Zero harm. Ecologically sound.
Each brand within SOKO District has a completely customisable space which means customers can easily find and recognise their favourite store. From a shop-fitting perspective, nothing goes to waste. Even shop branding is carefully recycled into stylish shopping bags after use.
