Pringle House Eco Pre School & Primary School

Operating since 2008, Pringle House Eco Primary School provides quality primary school education, preschool & after care facilities and, beginning in 2016, a nursery program.

From its spacious hillside premises in the beautiful Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, Pringle House Eco Primary School overlooks the seaside village of Pringle Bay, the famous Hangklip Peak and False Bay.

Operating since 2008, Pringle House Eco Primary School provides quality primary school education, preschool & after care facilities and, beginning in 2016, a nursery program.

Children at the school enjoy a varied program of indoor and outdoor learning activities and play, strongly influenced by the school’s commitment to an environmentally friendly approach to life.

While Pringle House Eco Primary School is an independent school, the educational program follows the South African Department of Basic Education curriculum under watchful auditing by the Western Cape Education Department.

The school’s approach to teaching and learning emphasizes the all round development of each child, in which emotional formation is enhanced by a sense of compassion, community and belonging; intellectual development, including language, maths and science, is supported by a varied program of kin-aesthetic, visual, auditory and sensory learning modes and physical development is enhanced by the development of fine motor skills, through arts and crafts, in the classroom and large muscle development is complemented by outdoor play, climbing apparatus, creative movement and sports.

Children have the opportunity to be directly involved in caring for the environment by assisting in the control of invasive vegetation and conserving indigenous flora, vegetable gardening, caring for small animals and creatively re-cycling and re-purposing everyday objects and materials through arts and crafts.

Pringle Bay Eco Primary School proudly flies the Eco Schools green flag as a participant in the international program of the Foundation for Environmental Education, managed locally by WESSA and the WWF-SA.

The communities of the villages of Pringle Bay, Betty’s Bay and Rooiels and the parents of the schoolchildren are an integral part of the school’s life, enabling children to develop friendships that integrate their school life with their wider social environment.
