OUR PHILOSOPHY OF LEARNING
Our heart-led, intentional education aims to guide our students, focusing on nurturing all aspects of the students’ development, so that they are prepared for the future.
At Legacy House, we want to make sure that both staff and the student body feels welcome, heard and understood.
Our staff will work proactively together to ensure the school is a place of acceptance and opportunity. We place great priority on building confident, empathetic and respectful human beings.
Legacy House is built on 6 pillars: Honesty, Kindness, Trust, Respect, Responsibility and Fairness.Legacy House in Plettenberg Bay is built on the belief that every child is important. Every child’s voice deserves to be heard; and every child should be guided to success
As educators who have more than 20 years of experience in both private and government schools, we have become concerned and disillusioned by a number of issues, such as:
Traditional schooling is not meeting the needs of our children, as they focus on the curriculum and not the child.
Private schools are often profit-driven with hidden costs.
Class sizes are problematic.
Teachers are not equipped, experienced or qualified.
Too many children are being lost in these systems.
