Mondeor Eco School opened its doors on 15 January 2007. It started as a small homeschool with only four students and one teacher. By the end of the first term, there were ten students enrolled. The owners then bought the current premises and re-opened its doors in May 2007. As of the beginning of 2018, we have over 450 learners enrolled from Grade RR to Grade 12. We follow the National Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) as prescribed by the Department of Basic Education.
The school was initially started because of the need for small classes where students could receive individual attention from teachers. At the same time, there is demand for an environment less stressful than in larger schools. Our school is located in a farm environment, emphasising our learners’ place among nature and animals, and a more holistic approach to teaching.
We continue to expand our facilities; focusing on professional and caring teachers offering learner-centred education in small classes, and developing our community’s appreciation for the environment.
