admissions to settlers' park pre-primary school pietermaritzburg
what do you need to know in order to apply to settlers’?
With effect from 2019, we have changed the starting age for new learners. Your child should have turned 12 months before the start of his/her first year at
Settlers’, and must transfer to a primary school in the year that he/she turns seven.
Our medium of instruction is English.
To ensure the health and safety of all our children, you must produce your child‘s Clinic / Road to Health card to confirm that all statutory immunizations have been administered. A copy of this will be kept at the school.
Settlers’ is officially a Christian school and maintains sound Christian values. We celebrate Christian religious events such as Easter and Christmas, which are part of our teaching programme. Children of other faiths are welcome at our school. Our rich cultural and religious diversity is celebrated in a theme which recognizes and embraces “Our Rainbow Nation”.
