OUR HISTORY FACTS

The School was founded in 1986 by Prophet Kobus van Rensburg with 20 students on the current site of the Old Drive-In Site just outside Stilfontein, North West Province.  The School was inspired by the need for Christian Education and to train-up a generation of Christian leaders in the local community of the KOSH (Klerksdorp, Orkney, Stilfontein, and Hartebeesfontein) area.

Apart from the previous government that wanted to close the school when it opened, the school grew steadily and before not too long in 1988 a need for a multi-raced school arouse.  At that stage it was not legal and was decided to have two separate school campuses.  When segregation was dissolved in the early 90’s the school moved to combine and became one of the few multi-racial schools in the North West Province. 

Since that historical time the school grew into one of the model independent schools in the area with a strong historical of non-racism and academic excellence.  The school is also still living out the original vision of training young people to become the leaders of tomorrow with a Christ-like character, and strong moral values.



At the school each staff member is committed to academic excellence and has the opportunity not just to impart education to the learner, but also life skills through a biblical perspective.  The school also wants to see students leaving the school after graduation which is well rounded in all areas of education.  This is reached by a well balanced curriculum consisting out of academics, culture and sport.

 The school also wants to create opportunities for the students to reach their full potential which is not based on any form of discrimination or economical income- class.  This can only be made possible by the constant support received by Spirit Word House.
