Welcome to our
Catholic Schools Network


The Cape Town Catholic Schools’ Office serves 38 schools in the Archdiocese of Cape Town as well as the Diocese of Oudtshoorn. Our network is comprised of a variety of different types of schools.  The vast majority of our schools are primary public schools on private property (PSPPs).  We also have six secondary schools, a number of independent schools and schools that cater for children who are differently abled
 
Our website contains a page on each of these schools as well as a links to their specific websites.

The distinctive nature of Catholic education
 

Catholic education has a rich and long legacy in our region.  Most of our schools were founded, many decades ago, by missionary congregations of courageous religious sisters and brothers who were inspired to transform the world through quality education.  Today, our schools are largely managed and governed by lay people but enormous time and energy has been invested in ‘passing on the flame’ of Catholic Education.

 

 The Catholic Board of Education conducts oversight of our schools and ensures that the founding vision is honoured.Catholic education is rooted in the premise that a child is created in the image of God and is deserving of ‘life in abundance’ that was promised by our Lord.  To this end, the Catholic school espouses to educate holistically – mind, body and spirit.  A special emphasis is placed on Pastoral Care and Religious Education. Our schools embrace children and teachers from all religious and cultural backgrounds and seek to deepen their awareness of the Divine in their lives.

Keeping connected

The Catholic Schools Coordinating Forum, Principals’ forum and Religious Educators’ forum coordinate a number of exciting events which bring the various Catholic Education stakeholders together. These events include, amongst others, sports and cultural festivals, massed choir performances, learner leadership programmes, retreat days for teachers, quiz evenings and social gatherings. A calendar of events is available and our photo gallery captures some of these special occasions. The organisation of these events is coordinated by a number of our principals and teachers who generously give of their time and talents to nurture connectivity within our network.
