The Story of Blair Atholl Pre-Primary School
Thuto ke Lesedi. Education is light. The school started in a small building on Blair Atholl Estate in 1990, with the Grade R learners having to use a passageway as a classroom. In 2005, the school was moved to a new building. The new school now consisted of four spacious classrooms.
The Magic of Blair Atholl. Most of our learners are from single-parent households from surrounding informal settlements, farms and smallholdings. We pride ourselves on identifying, together with qualified psychologists, learners with special needs and refer them to schools that better understand their unique needs and challenges.
Empowerment brings pride. We are a privately-funded school supported by our sponsors. However, we do find it important that parents pay a small fee towards schooling. It helps give the parents a sense of pride in their children’s education.
