Message from the Principal

At Waterfall College, we believe that what we do every day makes a difference to the children in our care as they approach the final phase of their school careers. We work daily to create an environment of Christian values and ethics where they can thrive in academics, technology, sport, culture, leadership, service and outreach.

Principal Jeanette van der Merwe

Welcome to our school! I look forward to meeting you and your family personally at our campus in Hillcrest.

These are exciting times for our school as we have been part of the creation of Waterfall Schools, sharing the iThemba Campus with Waterfall Pre-Primary and Waterfall Preparatory. The past three years have been a whirlwind of activity on campus and we particularly look forward to the completion of our new classroom block, scheduled to be open by the end of 2019.

Waterfall College chooses to be one of the South African schools that continues to strive for excellence as an educational centre. We want to play a role in uplifting education in South Africa, by equipping all our students with fundamental skills – skills that are learnt from our teachers that enable our students to go out there and to make a difference.

I am grateful to our hardworking teachers for the enormous effort they put into their teaching and into the hours of additional administration required to maintain our IEB quality standards via IQAA evaluation and our accreditation with Umalusi.  Your children will experience teachers with a level of subject specialist expertise and experience that is exceptional, and this is a key reason for choosing Waterfall College.

We love what we do. We are creating a future together as a remarkable educational centre of excellence catering to individual student needs. While we are proud of our school, we continue to value humility, hard work and respect for others. We invite you to come and talk to us.

Yours sincerely

Jeanette van der Merwe
