The overarching vision for Entabeni is to introduce an inclusive school life and multi-cultural learning environment for residents and their children. Those who school at Entabeni will learn skills that are far-reaching into life, with focus on sport, artisan trade, agriculture, hospitality and culture.
With development already underway, the Entabeni Campus plans to open its first phase of enrolment in 2020, for 120 learners ranging from Grade 8 and 9. This is just the first phase of the greater vision for Entabeni Campus and will even provide 60 boarding rooms for all the successfully enrolled pupils, as well as a number of rooms for teachers. This foundation stage is set to be operational within 2021 and run by one of the country’s leading educational institutions.
Phase 2 will follow in 2022 to 2023, where the Entabeni Campus will be able to accommodate 1000 students from primary school through to secondary school. Thereafter, Phase 3 will introduce tertiary education and create a learning eco-system that will set individuals up with practical skills and extensive knowledge to prepare them for the working world.
Entabeni Campus takes learning far beyond the classroom, allowing learners to live in amongst nature, as well as have the opportunity to be schooled ‘under the stars’.
