THE COUNTRY HOUSE SCHOOL STORY

Nestled in the serene suburb of Heather Park, George, at the foothills of the impressive Outeniqua Mountains, Country House School offers an enchanting learning experience. Located along the breathtaking Garden Route, our school is surrounded by pristine beaches, glistening lagoons, lush indigenous forests, and picturesque farmlands, providing a captivating backdrop for our students. The natural beauty of our surroundings is reflected in every aspect of Country House School, from our remarkable facilities to our nurturing environment.

Initially known as George Little Farm School, Country House School was established in 2014 within a modest wooden outbuilding. Over the years, we have transformed into a school that takes immense pride in its unique facilities, including a heated indoor pool and an indoor trampoline gymnasium. Additionally, we have created a haven for rescued animals such as goats, bunnies, doves, and tortoises. Our little farmyard has become a beloved part of our school, with students eagerly participating in caring for these animals each day.

Set in a peaceful countryside setting, our premises exude a calm and nurturing atmosphere. Our commitment to maintaining a low student-teacher ratio ensures that each student receives personalized attention and care, fostering close and supportive relationships within our school community. We prioritize the health and well-being of every child, emphasizing their overall development and growth.

Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of accompanying your child and family on this educational journey. At Country House School, we cherish every student as the apple of God’s eye, providing a holistic and enriching educational experience.

OUR MISSION & VISION

At Country House School, we specifically seek to:

Inclusivity

Lay a deep foundation of love
and reverence for our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ, while also promoting love for oneself and others. We are committed to fostering an environment that values and respects all religious beliefs and cultures, ensuring inclusivity and diversity.

Unique Needs

We believe in creating a
learning environment that is fearless and stress-free, we support critical thinking, creativity and foster a mind-set that there is no single correct answer or solution to a problem, promoting students to ask questions and thinking for themselves.

Morality

We place great importance
on instilling strong morals and a sense of awareness of others’ needs. We encourage students to respond with acts of kindness, support, selflessness, service, generosity, and compassion, utilizing their talents to make a positive impact in the world.

Nurturing

We strive to embrace and celebrate all talents and skills, understanding that each student has unique abilities and interests. Our curriculum integrates
real-life situations and emphasizes the importance of life skills, equipping our students for success in the future.

Confidence

Another key aspect of our mission is to nurture confident students with a healthy self-esteem and a strong sense of self-worth. We provide positive and constructive encouragement to help our students realize their full potential.

Empowering

We also emphasize the values of respect, independence, responsibility, consequence, and accountability. Our goal is to empower our students to make wise choices, take ownership of their actions, and understand the impact they have on themselves and others.

Teamwork

We value sportsmanship, encouraging personal growth and teamwork, however blaming teammates for losses or poor performance is not acceptable – we foster a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone is valued. 

Humility

Lastly, we encourage our students to remain humble, appreciative, and grateful. We emphasize the privilege of education and remind our students to embrace each day and give their best effort.
