WALLACEDENE

Wallacedene Eagle's Nest School

Founded in 2006, Eagle's Nest is the first primary school to be opened. It is situated in Wallacedene, an informal settlement near Cape Town. God has provided miraculously for the many needs of the school.

In 2006 we started with 30 learners and have grown with each year's fresh intake. By 2018 we will have 460 registered learners.

A place in the school is now so much in demand that parents apply 12 months in advance.

Most of the children are from very poor homes made from corrugated iron or even black bags and cardboard. The stark reality is that many arrive at school with empty stomachs, and lack the most basic necessities. In addition to educating the children, we meet these needs. Although parents are asked to contribute a nominal amount to their children's education, we primarily rely on donations and gifts.

Apart from the principal, all the staff live in the community, 6 of whom are currently pursuing further professional development and training.
