The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason but no morals. We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character that is the goal of true education.”– Martin Luther King Jr.
I would like to welcome you to Siyafundza Private School, Siyafundza English Medium Preschool and to our website for a look at the diversity of opportunity and range of experiences our students receive.
Siyafundza Private School is dedicated to the saying “Arise and shine” with the glowing rising sun in our logo as a symbol which dispels the darkness of ignorance, giving equal education for everyone who becomes part of this institution. In all we do we are “Driven by a passion for excellence” which is our motto.
Every effort has been made to assemble a strong diverse team of teachers and support staff to give our school the strength and unique flavour that will distinguish it as a school of choice in the area. Our aim is to assist all students to achieve their potential as well as focusing on defined knowledge and skills objectives. We strive to develop attitudes and values which best equip our children for life and for active and productive participation in society. To disseminate knowledge with a difference” is our prime goal. I am privileged to have excellent Educators who not only impart knowledge within the perimeters of a set curriculum but also focus on molding and shaping our students personalities to be team players by instilling a healthy competitive spirit and imparting problem solving skills. We focus on outcome based learning and most importantly, assist our students in understanding the importance of ethics and moral and human values that will contribute positively to the growth of a community and society in general.
To achieve these aims, we maintain a safe and open environment where clear and frequent communication with you, the primary educators, is essential. To do this we have an open door policy which means that, following the usual protocols of making appointments, we are always available to discuss issues and matters which may impact on your child’s overall performance.
Siyafundza embodies mutual respect in a caring environment while enabling students to achieve personal success and move with confidence into a world of endless possibilities. Teaching, we believe is an art and every teacher needs to be an artist. This art can be best provided by a teachers’ endeavor to satiate the curiosity a student. The technological and pedagogical innovations lead us towards greater learning outcomes.
I am particularly thankful and privileged to be surrounded by a dedicated and service minded management team, committed teachers, supportive parents, and of course, a great group of students that always seem to make our efforts supremely worthwhile. I am excited for the opportunities for much learning and growth that await us here at Siyafundza Private School in the forthcoming years, and I am confident, as always, that our greatest strength lies in our commitment to the bigger community we serve and to the crafting together of a shared vision.
