Greenacres Private College


Greenacres Private College is located in Meyerton, just off the R59 Johannesburg- Vereeniging Highway.

The school was founded in 1999, and opened its doors in January 2000 to Grade 8 and 9 pupils. 2003 saw the first Grade 12 pupils matriculating.

We are registered with the Gauteng Department of Education and the Independent Examination Board. At Greenacres Private College we recognise that each pupil has his/her own potential, and we strive towards developing that, creating a positive atmosphere in which effective learning can take place, remembering always that learning is fundamentally connected to a pupilⳠintrinsic motivation to seek meaning in his /her own world.

Greenacres is governed by a Board of Control which works closely with the academic staff to ensure optimum efficiency and maintain high standards in and out of the classroom.
 

Mission Statement

As a school, our first priority is the children who have been entrusted to us by their parents; we must provide each child with the best and broadest education of mind, spirit and body, so that they may face up to the challenges of life with both fortitude and enthusiasm.

To do this we work within the framework provided by the Department of Education, striving always to add enrichment thereto so that our pupils may be able to avail themselves of all the educational opportunities offered both here and elsewhere in this changing world.

A most important partner in education is the parent, and liaison and co-operation between parent and school is vital for the overall development of the child; this must be a relationship of mutual trust and respect so that the child may flourish in a nurturing atmosphere both at home and at school. Our pupils must realise the responsibilities of good citizenship and support the community in which they live and learn.

Staff members will be encouraged to develop professionally so as to offer pupils the most up-to-date educational theory and practice.

We will strive to provide a working environment in which both pupils and staff may perform their tasks comfortably; to this end we will maintain in good order our school premises and ensure both the cleanliness and the safety of our grounds and buildings.

We will always encourage the pupils to realise the validity of the school motto.
