Doringkloof has been a parallel medium school since 1997, educating learners in both English and Afrikaans. Our school is known for its excellent academic record and we are strongly committed to maintaining high academic standards in a nurturing environment.
At Doringkloof we believe that school-based sport is an important part of your child’s overall educational experience. When children participate in sport, they benefit not only physically, but also socially and mentally. This is why at Doringkloof we focus on participation, and when we achieve it is merely a bonus!
It is our school’s belief that taking part in a cultural activity helps children to deal with both success and failure as well as to develop social skills and build new friendships. By performing on stage our children build confidence and become more sure of themselves; thus positively influencing leadership skills.
Thought for the week
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
