Regina Coeli RC Primary School
About our School
Regina Coeli RC Primary School was established in 1962. The present school building was formerly a mineral water factory which was converted into classrooms to cater for the increasing demand by parents in the area. The school is situated along Klipfontein Road in Athlone, Western Cape. The school originally offered classes from Sub-A to Standard 2 with less than 100 learners and taught by a staff of 5 teachers. Currently the school offers classes from Grade R to Grade 7 with an enrolment of 324 learners. As previous principals have stated, “We are on big happy family.”
The Regina Cæli or Regina Cœli ("Queen of Heaven", pronounced [reˈdʒina ˈtʃeli] in ecclesiastical Latin), is an ancient Latin Marian Hymn of the Catholic Church.
The senior learners of the school undertook tours, in the past, to places in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Port Elizabeth and Durban.
The sports extra mural programme includes under 9/11/13 netball, a baseball team and a dance programme. The school annually participates in the Inter Catholic Schools Athletics event as well as sport and cultural events throughout the year.
Academically the school refused to be left behind, students was awarded scholarships to study at Christian Brother’s College. Currently St Joseph’s Marist College in Rondebosch has established a partnership with Regina Coeli RC Primary School and implemented a number of programmes for our learners. One of our Grade 7 learners has been awarded a scholarship to study and start a High School career at St Joseph’s Marist College. The school boasts a number of Lit/Num awards from Metro Central Education District at both Grade 3 and Grade 6 levels.
