Our School

Foreword from our Principal

Our school has undergone an array of transformational phases since its inception in 1963.

Many dedicated leaders, teachers and learners have shaped how our school is perceived and interacted with by many stakeholders. Our school motto “We Strive Forward”  “Ons Strewe Voorentoe” has galvanised or collective efforts to ensure that we remain relevant as an organisation as we prepare our learners for a diversified future.

We have celebrated many achievements over the years and I am sure that our future will be even brighter. We have forged strong business and professional relationships with service providers and business partners whom we have taken along with us on this process.

I wish to encourage every learner at our school to set high standards and to believe in themselves. The opportunities presented to you at Delta Primary will certainly mould and forge you, for a future which will be challenging but equally exciting. Set goals and hold yourself accountable to achieve the goals you have set.

Yours in education

Mr H. Palanyandi
