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.

Obstacle Course Winners

 Congratulations to our Pelham Children for embracing the cold weather and going all out to ensure the success of the Obstacle Course day. The highly anticipated day arrived at the end of the third term but was a particularly cold and windy one. This did not deter the children who seemed to get happier the muddier they got. Even the staff showed another side to their normally composed demeanor with battles being fought for control of the hose pipes and the sunlight liquid. The obstacle course is the main fundraising event of the school and the most amazing prizes are offered as incentives to encourage the children to convince friends and family to part with their pennies.

Mr. Botha's Farewell

On Wednesday, 5 November, Pelham School hosted a farewell cocktail evening for the principal, Mr. Louis Botha, seen here with Rob and Margie O'Dell. It was a wonderful time of celebration with staff, colleagues, past teachers, family and friends.

After 37 years at Pelham, the last 22 as Principal, Mr. Botha has made the decision to retire. His strong, unique style of leadership, his understanding of children and the ability to get the best out of each individual, have impacted on innumerable lives. His passion for rugby is legendary and so is his concern for and love of nature, which led to the establishment of Pelham Park. Mr. Botha's time at Pelham has left a legacy which will not be forgotten. AD COLLES

Guests at the cheese and wine evening were also entertained by the Pelham Choir, and pupils from the Drama Department recited a piece of poetry. More...
