Ed-U-College is very much alive and successful on our premises at the corner of Smuts Avenue and Walter Sisulu Street. This year will be our 26th year in the field of education, and although we are not all that evident from the street, drive in through the main gate and you will see that we have enviable grounds with lovely lawns, big, old trees and beautifully equipped classrooms and a laboratory. We are a Combined Independent School operating under the leadership of two Directors – Mrs A. Lee and Mrs K. Jacobs.
Our soccer field was once upon a time the bowling greens so you may imagine the quality our players enjoy. And that’s not all! We have a computer centre & laboratory. With our excellent matric pass rate, more and more parents want their children to attend a school, which has been modest in the past. With an enormous influx of new pupils from all over the province and a dedicated staff of 36 accountable and highly experienced teachers who are determined to do their very best to prepare the young people for their future, Ed-U-College will go from strength to strength!
Every year our school is overwhelmed by parents who want their children to attend our school. Sadly many of these parents wait too long and we have to turn them away. To avoid disappointment, please register from 1 September 2014 so that you are assured your child has a space for 2015.
We offer classes from Grade R to Grade 12 and extra classes in English, Maths and Science on Saturdays at our “Saturday School”.
Ed-U-College follows the CAPS of the Department of Education for all grades and tuition is through the medium of English. NCS, GET and FET is implemented in the applicable grades. Provision is made for Matriculation Exemption and Senior Certificate. Students are provided with a list of required textbooks and stationery which are available from a local supplier. Ed-U-College pays special attention to students who fail to reach their full potential by teaching correct study methods.
Our school is equipped with an alarm system and has a permanent security guard on the premises as well as a safety fence. Our learners engage in various cultural activities such as drama, arts festival and choral events. Sport is an important part of education and we offer mini cricket, netball, soccer and Inter-house athletics. Our learners also have the opportunity to partake in our “Fun Days” and educational trips. An “Entrepreneur’s Day” is an educational, fun day where learners are able to apply their knowledge in creating their own businesses with the help of specially trained educators.
Guidance and vocational guidance are provided on a continuous basis as part of the school program. A qualified councillor is available when required.
Interested parties should collect a registration form from the school office, complete it and pay the registration fee applicable. The learner’s latest results and a copy of the birth certificate should be attached.
