ABOUT US

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT

Shiloah Christian School is a co-educational, combined (Primary & High) independent school. The school is currently situated in Wynberg and accommodates between 160-170 learners at present. We have a staff compliment of approximately 30 members inclusive of full and part-time educators, support staff & administrators.

Shiloah was birthed in April 1998 and started as a daycare centre, after which the primary school began with two educators and five learners in a church hall. The school received its official registration as a Primary school in the year 2000. In September 2001, we occupied the previously renowned “Battswood Teachers Training College building in the Cape Town suburb of Wynberg and have continued to grow there since. The high school was added in 2002. One grade each year was successfully introduced over a period of five years, completing our first matric year in 2006. Twenty years later, we have hosted twelve matric classes successfully.

MISSION STATEMENT

Shiloah was birthed from a desire to provide a school that strives to enable and empower our children, especially those from previously disadvantaged communities, to excel beyond their highest expectation in an accessible, stimulating, Christian environment.

 

We the community of Shiloah Christian School, are committed to providing our learners with an environment in which they are given an opportunity for learning :

 

  •  The rewards of Intellectual development
  •  Spiritual nurture & accountability
  •  Social harmony & respect
  •  The rewards of strong spiritual and moral courage
  •  Exemplary discipline
  •  Leadership skills
  •  Cultural enrichment & diversity
  •  Physical well-being & human dignity
  •  The desire to strive toward Academic Excellence

 

We aim to achieve this by:

 

  •  Preparing our learners to become well rounded, responsible citizens. Society today proves that the average child is unprotected and overly exposed to unwanted dangers such as depression, peer pressure, drug and alcohol abuse, unwanted teenage pregnancies, suicide, gangsterism, etc. We instill the principles of faith, hope, love, forgiveness and perseverance in our learners. They learn that faith is the courage to face reality with hope.
  •  Giving our learners development opportunities. At Shiloah we are passionate about helping young people achieve their full potential. We assist them in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become confident, competent, caring individuals. Children today need nourishment, care and attention. We believe that teaching children to develop and master a good self-esteem, a high level of confidence and good self worth will enable them to pursue their dreams, persevere and live out their full potential. This is achieved through our academic, spiritual & practical educational & extra curricular programs.
  •  Placing the best interest of the child during teaching and learning first. The special character of a school is determined by the relationship between its learners and educators. This is a characteristic that has formed the very foundation of Shiloah Christian School. Personal attention secures good and trusting relationships between educator and learner, therefore ensuring a happier and contented child. Supportive, committed staff strive daily to make a positive difference in the lives of our children.

 

At Shiloah we strive to create a cohesive environment of teamwork where everyone works hard, everyone is respected and everyone can succeed. Learner needs are identified and everyone works together to provide the necessary interventions to meet their needs. We have a very supportive team that values education and strives to instill hard work in the learners. It is a positive environment where learners know they can succeed if they choose to work hard. We believe that all children can succeed no matter what economic background they come from.

VISION

  • and dedicated to the service of God, their fellow man and their community as a whole.

 

  • We envisage learners who are technologically skilled and able to cope in a diverse society in order to promote sound, tolerant and responsible citizens of South Africa.

 

  • Our stance: “Excellence is not a single act, but a HABIT”. Practice makes progress and progress produces the motivation to strive for excellence. This is what we believe and this is what we train our learners to believe. “Do not allow your circumstances to dictate your future – You can rise above your circumstances”.

 

  • Children need to belong, therefore small classes create a non-threatening environment that secures personal attention and trusting relationships between an educator and learner. Thus assisting to recognize and develop the unique potential of each individual child, training them to think and work independently.

ABOUT US

BACKGROUND &

CONTEXT

Shiloah Christian School is a co-educational, combined (Primary & High) independent school. The school is currently situated in Wynberg and accommodates between 160-170 learners at present. We have a staff compliment of approximately 30 members inclusive of full and part-time educators, support staff & administrators.

Shiloah was birthed in April 1998 and started as a daycare centre, after which the primary school began with two educators and five learners in a church hall. The school received its official registration as a Primary school in the year 2000. In September 2001, we occupied the previously renowned “Battswood Teachers Training College building in the Cape Town suburb of Wynberg and have continued to grow there since. The high school was added in 2002. One grade each year was successfully introduced over a period of five years, completing our first matric year in 2006. Twenty years later, we have hosted twelve matric classes successfully.

MISSION

STATEMENT

Shiloah was birthed from a desire to provide a school that strives to enable and empower our children, especially those from previously disadvantaged communities, to excel beyond their highest expectation in an accessible, stimulating, Christian environment.

 

We the community of Shiloah Christian School, are committed to providing our learners with an environment in which they are given an opportunity for learning :

 

  •  The rewards of Intellectual development
  •  Spiritual nurture & accountability
  •  Social harmony & respect
  •  The rewards of strong spiritual and moral courage
  •  Exemplary discipline
  •  Leadership skills
  •  Cultural enrichment & diversity
  •  Physical well-being & human dignity
  •  The desire to strive toward Academic Excellence

 

We aim to achieve this by:

 

  •  Preparing our learners to become well rounded, responsible citizens. Society today proves that the average child is unprotected and overly exposed to unwanted dangers such as depression, peer pressure, drug and alcohol abuse, unwanted teenage pregnancies, suicide, gangsterism, etc. We instill the principles of faith, hope, love, forgiveness and perseverance in our learners. They learn that faith is the courage to face reality with hope.
  •  Giving our learners development opportunities. At Shiloah we are passionate about helping young people achieve their full potential. We assist them in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become confident, competent, caring individuals. Children today need nourishment, care and attention. We believe that teaching children to develop and master a good self-esteem, a high level of confidence and good self worth will enable them to pursue their dreams, persevere and live out their full potential. This is achieved through our academic, spiritual & practical educational & extra curricular programs.
  •  Placing the best interest of the child during teaching and learning first. The special character of a school is determined by the relationship between its learners and educators. This is a characteristic that has formed the very foundation of Shiloah Christian School. Personal attention secures good and trusting relationships between educator and learner, therefore ensuring a happier and contented child. Supportive, committed staff strive daily to make a positive difference in the lives of our children.

 

At Shiloah we strive to create a cohesive environment of teamwork where everyone works hard, everyone is respected and everyone can succeed. Learner needs are identified and everyone works together to provide the necessary interventions to meet their needs. We have a very supportive team that values education and strives to instill hard work in the learners. It is a positive environment where learners know they can succeed if they choose to work hard. We believe that all children can succeed no matter what economic background they come from.

VISION

At Shiloah Christian School our core value is CARE. We care about:

 

  •  The well being & development of our learners.
  •  Teaching children the coping skills they need in order to overcome the negative influences in their lives that rob them of a successful future.
  •  Promoting full participation in society and the economy through equitable and meaningful access to quality academic, social, Christian education.

AIMS / OBJECTIVES / GOALS

 

  •  Our vision is aimed at the perspective of educating our youth as future leaders, to be stable and well rounded members of society whilst providing the necessary motivation for Higher Education. We choose therefore, to assist our children, by motivating them, the successors to a new generation.

 

  • It is the aim of the School to produce young men and women who are:

 

  • independent thinkers with strong spiritual and moral courage;
  • who are articulate, well mannered and tolerant;
  • educated in the widest sense of the word;
  • sensitive to the needs of others;
  • and dedicated to the service of God, their fellow man and their community as a whole.

 

  • We envisage learners who are technologically skilled and able to cope in a diverse society in order to promote sound, tolerant and responsible citizens of South Africa.

 

  • Our stance: “Excellence is not a single act, but a HABIT”. Practice makes progress and progress produces the motivation to strive for excellence. This is what we believe and this is what we train our learners to believe. “Do not allow your circumstances to dictate your future – You can rise above your circumstances”.

 

  • Children need to belong, therefore small classes create a non-threatening environment that secures personal attention and trusting relationships between an educator and learner. Thus assisting to recognize and develop the unique potential of each individual child, training them to think and work independently.

 

  • Being passionate about our mission as a Christian educational institution.
