Children are our Mission

  • Our aim is to teach our children great character traits which will brighten their future.
  • The six main characters are being a good citizen with responsibility, caring and respect for others, and
  • Be a child that is trustworthy and fair.
  • With being a good person comes good education and a VERY BRIGHT FUTURE!

    “Treat others the way you want to be treated.”

Tuck shop

At the beginning of each term, a list with names will go out asking parents to donate R60 for tuckshop supplies. Twice  a year each child will have a turn to make this donation. The teachers will purchase the required supplies they need in order to make “lucky packets” for each child. Every second Wednesday the Pre-School have their tuck-shop day, therefore each child is required to bring R5 to school in order to receive their “lucky packet”.



ALL teachers at Hermitage House School have an open door policy, and are willing to see parents. Please make appointments with teachers after school hours, should you wish to talk to your child’s teacher regarding a certain topic or concern.
