Start Dates & Holidays

Being the busy teachers we are, you won't mind if we take a few days off every year on national public holidays, right? There aren't many, but they're important to all South Africans. Join us as we party, pray, or remember and rejoice. Find more information about our Cape Town school's start dates and holidays below!
