When we opened in January 1999 little did we know that 20 years later we would still be doing what we love the most.
Over the years Atholhurst continues to grow and change with the times, the diversity of syndromes and the daily educational challenges.
If you are struggling to find the right learning environment, intervention centre to suit your child's individual, educational needs or developmental challenges and if you are looking for a well-established, small, stimulating and learning environment then look no further as we offer all of the above.
We cater for learners who fall between Remedial and Special Needs. This will include learners with Speech and Language Disorders, Physical, Mental and Intellectual Disabilities, Developmental and Cognitive Delays, Neurological Difficulties, Learning Difficulties, Syndromes, Asperger's, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADD and ADHD.
All children are special and it is their right to be educated. We believe that each child can reach their full potential with love, understanding, care, support and enthusiasm. Our methodology is to boost and enhance their self-esteem in order for them to become more independent and to overcome anything.
The School currently has two classes:
The Intervention Class - Caters for learners in the Pre-school and Junior Phase.
The Focus Class - Caters for learners who would require facilitation in a mainstream school. Primary and High School programs are followed as well as well as for learners in the intermediate and senior phase.
2020 was a very difficult year for the School and all who are involved. we were however able to set up a platform whereby we could communicate with our pupils during the very very difficult Lockdown Period.
Back to School meant that many protocols were put in place to protect all the stakeholders from the "virus" - All these protocols are still in place as the new year starts.
