In response to the opportunity to provide quality pre-primary education for under-resourced communities, St. Peters Church opened an ECD facility. In January 2012, twenty children aged 3-4 from disadvantaged backgrounds became the first class of iThemba School.
By 2016 we had 60 children in our care. The school is situated on the edge of Fish Hoek, close to both Masiphumelele and Ocean View. It is run by a team of qualified teachers, mostly from Masiphumelele. iThemba School is committed to staff training and development and is providing staff with opportunities to access professional qualifications relevant to their work. Our trajectory is to develop into a primary school for our children to feed into.
iThemba School is registered with the Department of Social Development, and with the Western Cape Education Department as an ECD independent school offering Grade R. We are registered as a Non Profit Organisation : 146-451 NPO
