The vision of all stakeholders of Acacia Park Primary is to prepare all learners enrolled at our institution in their entirety so that they can pursue their schooling career with confidence and with all the necessary skills. We are a dynamic learning institute striving to achieve educational best practice by maintaining excellence in education in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual and diverse educational environment.
Daily Routine and times:
We are committed to providing excellent value for money. To sustain excellence it is expected that all parents prioritise paying for education. At the same time, we do take into consideration low income families and where necessary we have a commitment to provide various levels of exemption depending on income.
In order for us to provide quality education the SGB is obliged to employ additional educators and this is one of the largest expenses of the school, so therefore the support of the families is essential.
For the school to keep the fees affordable, we are committed to embark on fundraising, and family co-operation is dearly required.
Grade 1 to 7 Fees for 2016:
Annual fee is R 5000,00 per learner that must be paid in 10 equal instalments of R 500,00 per month from January to October.

Acacia Park Primary School was founded in 1951 specifically for schooling the children of Members of Parliament. The learner numbers ranged from 70 in 1951 to about 140 in 1994. During that time the school was administered by the Transvaal Education Department. The school was later opened to all races since the existence of our new democratic Government.
Currently Acacia Park Primary School is a public school and is administered by the Western Cape Education Department and is now open to all learners from both inside and outside the village. Acacia Park Primary is an intimate home to 265 learners from Grade 1 to Grade 7. The surrounding environment is unique and tranquil and learners at all times are safe and secured.
Acacia Park Primary is a school involving excellent teachers with diverse culture, a committed support staff and a devoted School Governing Body. The staff and learners have maintained a wonderful rapport ensuring care, respect and consideration amongst each other.
Since January 2013 when I started here as principal, the school showed huge improvement in the Systemic results and we have been awarded with certificates for substantial improvement for the past three consecutive years.
At present a percentage of the learners come from within the area, but most learners come from the surrounding suburbs.
Our motto ‘Certi Pergite’ spells out ‘ Forward with determination’ and that is precisely what we are striving to uphold.
