Values and vision

SAHETI Primary and High School's vision is to educate and nurture world citizens, teaching them core values rooted in South African and Hellenic tradition to ensure they become independent, creative and critical thinking students possessing integrity and world awareness. The education at the school is values-driven and focuses on developing the strengths of students and instilling a love of lifelong learning and wisdom, resulting, the school hopes, in valued and responsible members of the community.

The school aims to enrich pupils not only academically but also in terms of respecting and appreciating the culture, history and all other aspects of Greek tradition. Blending a holistic approach to teaching with an encouragement of hard work and high standards set by high quality teachers provides a diverse and ultimately successful learning experience.

Teachers are supported by the school to further their qualifications, and a varied choice of the arts is also incorporated into the curriculum, resulting in the development of creative, academic and philosophical individuals.
