About our Primary
At Willow Academy Primary we realise that our students are in their forming years. It is during these years that they secure their identity and values – the who and what they are. We place strong emphasis on values and how this affects their daily lives. We partner with our parents and work together to ensure that students know who they are in Christ and what they can achieve.
Our goal is to encourage learners to apply themselves with confidence and to explore a range of sporting and cultural activities. We urge students to complete each task to the best of their ability. They are stretched, challenged and nurtured academically. Students are encouraged to follow Christ and to make Christian-based decisions on a daily basis. They are taught from the Bible, and encouraged to view the world from a biblical perspective.
Our vision is to equip learners to develop their individual potential and to enable them to further God’s Kingdom in their local communities and in society at large. This incorporates the development of their spiritual, mental, emotional and physical potential.
We believe that sport and physical education are very important in the physical growth and development of children and youth. It leads to improved emotional well-being and aids in psychological and social development.
1 Corinthians 6: 19 & 20: Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Willow Academy provides its learners with a variety of activities which contribute toward their spiritual formation. Our teachers strive to present biblically integrated lessons with Religious Education (Studying God’s Word) being compulsory for all learners. We have a weekly assembly which incorporates a time of praise and worship, corporate prayer and a Bible-based talk or sermon. In addition, each school day begins with a ten-minute devotional period which includes a Bible reading and prayer.

From Our Principal
” Welcome the Willow Family. Willow Academy has been around since 1988. The heart of our school is to educate learners but also to equipe them with values and skills to change their communities. We are a school that believes that Jesus is at the centre of everything we do. We encourage our learners to follow the scripture Love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as you love yourselves. As this is the commandement Jesus gave. Then we also believe that there is nothing we cant do, we use the scripture I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
As a school we do comply with CAPS but we change the content from a humanistic worldview to a Biblical Worlview. This means we ask the question, What does Jesus have to say about this? So when deciding on a school it is important that you pray about it as we know that we will see your child more that you and what we impart in their lives should be inline with your worldview. “
