Christian Ethos

While respecting and welcoming learners of different faith backgrounds, the Waterberg Academy endeavours to nurture a developing spiritual life from a Christian perspective.

All learners attend a weekly chapel service and are encouraged to attend a Sunday church service at one of the many Christian churches in the Vaalwater area.

The Waterberg community is a small yet closely knit bushveld community with strong values based on a shared Christian faith. Marriage, Family and a sense of interdependence are core bush strengths and the Academy seeks to nurture those values in its learners through a witness of Christ’s gospel in leadership and daily school life.

The Academy continually seeks to apply these timeless values to the demands of an ever changing society. Our Christianity is positively inclusive and welcomes diversity, recognising all learners as valued members of the school community.
