Potchefstroom Central School is an English Medium Primary School with ideals based on the Christian belief. We adhere to the traditions of the school, which have been upheld for many years, but in keeping with the spirit of change and advancement we acknowledge, and respect other religions and cultures. The motto of our school is “I Serve”, which incorporates the service of the school to the community, the Educators to the service of the holistic development of the learners, and the service of the learners, to show their respect for the school which will equip them with a sense of balance, a deep respect for others and a will to strive towards excellence.
We take great pride in our school and instil this into our learners. Educators have a high degree of professionalism and loyalty and pass this on to the learners by example.Read more
