Vredelust Primary welcomes you as co-partners in the education of your child. We hope that your involvement with our school will be a rich and rewarding experience for both you and your child.

It is not only your right, but also your privilege to participate fully in your child’s education, hence the “open door policy” enabling you to discuss any matters about which you may have concerns. I do not guarantee instant answers, but certainly a sympathetic ear.

We also invite you to participate fully in the activities offered by the school by means of the Governing body and Parent Teachers’ Committee. May Vredelust Primary contribute richly in preparing your most valuable asset for his/her role in life.
