The children of today find themselves in the middle of an ever-changing world and through mutual support the school and the parent can contribute towards the successful education of your child. It is our aim to form children in such a way that they will become well-balanced and responsible citizens in society one day.

our school's history

The oldest available documents state that the school was founded in 1895. The first children were educated in the hall of the Dutch Reformed Church. In 1907 the school was placed under the control of the Stellenbosch School Board. By 1910 the school had grown to a total of 29 pupils and 2 educators of whom one was the principal, Miss Swart. In 1916 Miss Joubert was appointed the new principal. By 1919 the school experienced a shortage of space so an old horse shed was added to provide room for the pupils.

In 1920 they applied for land to erect a new building. The building contract was signed in 1925. This building is situated in School Street and today it houses the municipal offices. In the early 1970’s, after several prefab classes were added, it became evident that a bigger school was much needed to comply with the needs of the fast growing town. In 1977 the Department of Education began with the building of the present school which was officially opened on 9 September 1980.

The royal blue and light blue represents the sea and sky respectively. The yellow represents the intellectual growth and potential of our youth, while the white background is indicative of the purity of the youth.
