MESSAGE FROM EDMUND BARKHUYSEN

Longacres Private School is an exceptional school established by Johan and Petrie Oettle; two people who have a passion for teaching and creating opportunities for children. Petrie established Seeskulpie ECD 16 years ago and has never looked back.

With the addition of Longacres Private School in 2013, the school has grown exponentially. Longacres started originally with only a Foundation Phase and was completed as a Primary school in 2017.

There was an even greater need for the learners and community, High school leg of Longacres Private School was added in 2018. The high school is currently functioning from grade 8 – 11 in 2021 and will welcome our first Grade 12 class in 2022.

As principal, it is a great privilege to be part of this unique independent school. We have an exceptional teaching staff that are extremely energetic and always ready to help others. The teachers show their passion in class as well as on the Sport and cultural fields. They always walk the proverbial extra mile with the learners.

Longacres Private School's character is based on a Christian value-system. However it does not discriminate against any other religious convictions. Discipline and self-discipline are the cornerstone of teaching and we believe that all learners, parents, teachers and the school community should base their lives on these principles.

Longacres Private School allows learners the freedom to progress within their own ability which helps us maintain an excellent academic standard. Learners are continuously exposed, to the latest teaching strategies. These strategies challenge the learners and allows them to develop their knowledge and skill levels.

With this strategy, we prepare the learners to accept challenges without hesitation. We believe that this will cause the learners to develop as a productive adult in the broader West-coast community.

Mission

The school maintains a holistic approach to the education and development of learners. This includes physical and academic development as well as the development of creativity.

Longacres is a diverse educational institution with a Christian ethos, but it also shows understanding and tolerance for persons with other religious convictions within its school community.

Our school ensures optimal growth and development through professional tuition and optimal exposure to quality cultural and sports activities which is supported by skilled and well-trained staff.

Goals for 2020

Our goal is geared towards exceptional performance. We want to increase the school's enrolment by developing learners holistically: physically, psychically and above all - emotionally and intellectually.

We want to establish a culture of excellence through the quality of our education.

It is our endeavour that well-prepared and well-equipped matriculants will leave our school at the end of 2022.

To promote and improve on the existing sport codes.

To allow the, already acclaimed, arts division to go from strength to strength. This includes: music, drama and art.

We will strive to develop Longacres Private School as a deserving educational institution which will be able to compete with the best schools in all disciplines.

Promoting self-esteem and leadership amongst our learners, teachers and parents will be a high priority.

We acknowledge, with humility, that the words of 1 Corinthians 13 should form the foundation of our educational commitment: “I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, I am only a noisy gong or clanging bell.”

Doelwitte vir 2020

Ons doelwit is om uitmuntend te presteer. Ons wil die skool se getalle laat toeneem deur leerders op alle vlakke te laat groei – fisies en psigies – dit sluit veral emosionele en intellektuele ontwikkeling in.

Deur middel van kwaliteitonderrig wil ons graag ’n kultuur van uitnemendheid vestig.

Dit is ons voorneme dat goed voorbereide en toegeruste matrikulante in 2022 die skool sal verlaat.

Die bevordering van sport in bestaande kodes.

Om die reeds sterk kunste -afdeling van krag tot krag te laat gaan. Dit sluit musiek, drama en kuns in.

Dit is ons strewe om Longacres Privaatskool as ’n waardige opvoedkundige instansie te ontwikkel wat op alle gebiede met die beste skole sal kan meeding.

Om dit as ’n hoë prioriteit te beskou om eiewaarde en leierskap onder leerders, onderwysers en ouers te bevorder.

Ons besef ook in nederigheid dat ons daarna moet streef om die woorde van 1 Korinthiërs 13 die grondslag van ons opvoedingstaak te maak : “Al praat ek die tale van mense en engele, maar ek het geen liefde nie, het ek ’n stuk klinkende metaal, ’n galmende simbaal geword.”
