“When I started the school in 1997, so many people thought it would never last, but through God’s grace and faithfulness we have been able to reach this huge milestone.”

So said founder and chief executive officer of Fountain of Life Christian School, Desireé Steyn. The school uses the Accelerated Christian Education system, which is a Biblically based, individualized curriculum and caters for students from Grade 0 (R) to Grade 12.

“I am proud of the end product the school has produced. Our graduates excel in their chosen fields of study and work - we have doctors, psychologists, teachers, a chef; and an aspiring lawyer, medical technologist, nurse and accountants who are currently studying at various universities.”

Though the academics are of very high standard, the school’s greatest aim is to instil Godly character in every child.

The main birthday celebrations will take place on 26 & 27 May - the 26th will be an Old Students’ Reunion, and the 27th a Formal Ceremony and Banquet.
