Our Mission is to work with loving and dedicated teachers, provide learning materials of international standards in an attractive classroom environment thus giving the child the opportunity to explore and bring out his/her innate unique talents.
Our Vision is to be the leader in the provision of qualitative all round education for children based on Godly principles, in order for them to grow in wisdom and become responsible and useful members of society with a passion for excellence, honesty, hardwork, love for others and the fear of God.
Our Crest is made up of two colours: Green and Gold. Green signifies growth and life. Gold signifies heavenly streets. In the middle of the crest is an Olive Tree. The word of God says “thy children are like olive plants round about your table”. At the bottom of the crest is our motto “growing in wisdom”.
