About Groote Schuur Primary

Head of School’s Welcome,

At our small, English medium school,  our Principal Mr Valentine Nefdt and his staff strive to provide a safe, nurturing environment for all the learners.  We believe an all round education of sport, academics and culture is key to a successful schooling career. Respect, kindness, honesty and integrity are the pillars on which we stand, in our purpose to encourage our young ones to become successful members of society.

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a loving, kind and supportive environment for all pupils.

We have a holistic educational approach which will enhance optimal growth, mental, physical, social/emotional and spiritual spheres.

We value each pupil’s unique personality and talents.  We value diversity of race and culture as a gift.  We value synergy, tolerance, trust and respect for others.  We want to inspire academic excellence, critical thinking and creativity, principle-centered values, good relationships and open communication. We want to establish individuality and service to others, an awareness of the environment and an understanding of societies needs.
