Pelham Senior Primary School
We extend a warm and sincere welcome to all website visitors!
PELHAM SENIOR PRIMARY SCHOOL is a unique blend of all that is South African. Situated in the midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, this senior primary school offers experiences and opportunities so that every child is able to realise his/her potential.
Pelham is 'n dubbelmedium skool. Ons handhaaf 'n uitstekende akademiese standaard en leerlinge word aangemoedig om ten volle te ontwikkel. Ons baseer persoonlike gedrag en groei op die vier B's: beheer, betrokkenheid, bedagsaamheid en beleefdheid.
As part of our endeavour to provide our pupils with an holistic education, Edufocus at Pelham was founded to ensure that the physical, academic, social, emotional and psychological aspects of each and every pupil’s development, were nurtured in the best possible way. Under the Edufocus banner fall the many "pastoral care" undertakings which operate within the school and offer support in a multitude of ways.
Rebekah Gray recently attended a Karate Referee's Course at the Howick Sport's Club. The following day she went on to win a gold medal in the U12 Brown Belt category at the Natal Kimuru Shukokai Karate Championships. Well done to her.
It was all smiles when Mrs. Maretha Morkel, arrived with the new school bus!
