Vision and Mission

We are an independent school with a flexible curriculum. 

  • Christian school:  We are a Christian school with a no compromise policy.  Teachers and learners can live out their Godly principles and faith in a safe environment.
  • Every child has a calling from God and we help them discover their abilities, talents and gifts. We help children grow into successful adults to give South-Africa and our world new hope.
  • International Education: Cambridge Curriculum, Montessori techniques, CAPS for Afrikaans.  We follow an international curriculum so learners may advance their studies abroad.
  • 21 St Century approach to education

We believe in communicating with universities / colleges to prepare learners for their careers. Specific career guidance.  We believe that learners must acquire skills they will need in their studies and career / business.


Merely preparing learners to pass a test is not enough.

Assessment and teaching in the classroom must occur on the same level.  Learners are prepared to apply their skills with confidence. At Minkateko school our focus is learner centered individual education.  Each child learns differently and this need has to be met in the classroom.  We believe in working together with our parents and always carry our student’s best interests at heart!


Security guard at gate all day long.
