Making education relevant to the children...
Established in 1962, Michael Oak has more than 400 pupils at Nursery, Primary and High school levels situated on our campus in the heart of Kenilworth, Cape Town. With our High School expansion to Matric we will have around 450 pupils by 2016.
In 2014 we added a magnificent new five-classroom block to our High School. Our first matric class completed their Waldorf curriculum by presenting their final-year projects, and write their matriculation examinations in October 2015.
The Waldorf curriculum seeks to understand the needs of the growing child on each stage of their journey to adulthood, and to educate, challenge and support them on that journey. The goal is to produce confident, creative and empowered individuals ready to take on the challenges of life.
Michael Oak Waldorf School was started by parents wanting to give their children an education that is supportive and enriching, that seeks to find and nurture the strengths in each child. Our school community of parents, passionate teachers and pupils continues to grow and flourish.
