The Dragon Tree Project: one step closer to success

Imhoff Waldorf School is excited to announce that we have been given the official go ahead to begin the building and development of our new school as part our Dragon Tree Project (DTP). What this means is that our Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) approval process has been awarded to us and cannot be retracted, as the appeal period and process is now officially closed and completed. We anticipate that the building of the new high school as phase 1 will start in the remainder of 2016, targeting classes to commence in those new premises at the start of 2018. In parallel we mobilise to commence construction of the new primary school in the second half of 2017.


Our fundraising activities are well underway and we are looking forward to your continued support in relation to our fundraising efforts in spreading the word to your family and friends locally and internationally. The R75 million Capital Campaign Project, referred to fondly as the Dragon Tree Project (DTP), aims to turn a dream we all have of a permanent home for Imhoff Waldorf into reality and thereafter into a legacy for generations to follow. As we anticipated, this project will demand time, attention and dedication from us as a collective, to propel the school to this next level – all unified around a very worthy and relevant cause – the provision of sustainable Waldorf Education programmes for the children and future generations of Africa.

If you have not received or heard any information pertaining to this project and would like to know more about it, kindly email We are also actively looking to grow our student enrolments specifically into our Parent & Child Circle, Toddler Group, Playgroup and our High School during term 4 to support our school’s growth over 2017 and beyond. Please take the time to encourage friends and family members, with children in our area, who have not been exposed to the Imhoff Waldorf teaching and learning methodology to contact Claire Alberts ( at our school for more information in this regard. Or get Claire to contact them and invite them to our school open days.
