Emaromeni Primary School was founded by the Dominican Sisters of Newcastle in Benoni in 1935 and was called St. Joseph’s School up until it was changed in 1970 because the Department of Education asked that the name of the school be different from the name of the Parish St. Joseph’s as it was confusing both parish and school are in the same premises. Our learners all from the surrounding townships and squatter camps.
In 2001 our learners began to participate more fully in extra sporting codes as local area facilities became available to us. In summer we walk down to the local swimming pool, where learners are learning to swim at last and in winter we now have access to tennis courts so that learners can learn to play the sport. We also play soccer, netball, volley-ball and cricket on a neighbouring school’s fields.
Show Private Schools. We show private schools detail from all over South Africa because you need to find the best school for your child. We include the telephone number as well as when available the website link.
The South African Schools Act (SASA) of 1996 established a national schooling system and recognised two categories of schools: public and independent. Public schools are state controlled and independent schools are privately governed. All private schools were included into the independent school category.
