The school is set in the historic barn of the Sir Robert Stanford house in the heart of the village. Run by a core group of parents, the school is in the process of registering with the various education and social development departments, and is growing with the support of families in and around Stanford. A team of qualified and experienced teachers have developed the curriculum and programme with a focus on wholesome, creative and nature-inspired learning.

Okkie Smuts Primary School

There’s good reason for us being commonly referred to by locals as “the small school with the big heart”. Our small team of less than 15 teachers, who guide just over 250 learners through the all-important primary school years of life, do so with willingness, patience and a passion for teaching the next generation of leaders. We’re based in Stanford in the Western Cape and service learners from various communities in the area. What we lack in size, we more than make up for in knowledge, experience and a genuine love for our learners and their future.

Rural Education South Africa

Who we are Rural Education SA (RESA) is a program developed by the Fynbos Community Foundation. It is an alternative education model adapted for rural children. The Fynbos Community Foundation (FCF) was officially registered as an NPO in November 2012, although informal involvement in rural education dates back to 2005. The FCF has developed and implemented the Rural Education SA (RESA) program, to address the educational, social and vocational needs of rural children in South Africa. It is a pro-active intervention to address many barriers these communities experience in education. The ultimate goal is to equip our children to become self-sufficient, well rounded individuals. What we do: Establishment of Private Schools and Career Schools in rural areas that provides quality education, dietary support, sport participation, spiritual and social guidance, therapeutic intervention where necessary as well as recreational activities. The RESA programme caters for transport with 4 busses to and from school, provides nutritious breakfast and lunch and most importantly, provides rich and individualised educational, cultural and sporting instruction and assistance, in the lives of children who have not had the opportunity to access their right to a decent education. RESA Schools Fynbos Academy on Langverwacht farm 20km outside Stanford Hoopland Academy in Stanford Blouvlei Academy outside Wellington RESA Career Schools In 2017 FCF established two Career Schools for young people between the ages of 14 and 18 years of age where the focus is on both academic and practical development. This is a 4 year course where learners are enabled to qualify in preparation for entering the employment market, or equipped to engage in entrepreneurial activity.
