Nestled in the leafy suburb of Emmarentia, Emmarentia Primary School is one of Johannesburg’s best -kept secrets. Established over 60 years ago, our school offers quality education, small classes and a variety of sporting and cultural activities.
In our tranquil learning environment, old fashioned values combine with modern techniques to ensure every learner has a solid foundation for success.
Diversity of thinking and respect for others are encouraged in the classroom and on the sports field.
Our motto ‘Goodwill’ extends to all who enter the school’s portals. The atmosphere of nurturing acceptance ensures a steady platform from which children can explore their world.
Small classes ensure academic excellence in all subjects. Creative thinking and problem-solving skills are encouraged. Confidence is enhanced as learners work on projects individually or as members of a group. Language support and Mathematics enrichment programmes are two of the ‘added benefits’ at Emmarentia Primary School.
From the moment one is welcomed at Emmarentia Primary School, the school’s warm friendly atmosphere becomes apparent. This is because family is important here. Parents are encouraged to be involved in their children’s education. Events and activities that foster family life are encouraged and, because of the small size of the school, everyone knows each other.
A wide variety of sporting and cultural extramurals are offered. Our learners enjoy cricket, swimming, soccer, netball, tennis and athletics. Entrepreneurial skills are encouraged from an early age.
Visual arts and creative writing are encouraged at all levels both during class time and as extramural activities.
