Our Sponsorship Programme

We would like to introduce you to our Sponsorship Programme. With the school’s inception 21 years ago sponsorship was an integral part of the original vision of the school. We continue to strive to uphold this necessary endeavour.

One of the biggest challenges facing our society is to lift the quality and creativity of our education. Parents know that quality education is essential for their children’s future and many living in the poorer communities close to our school value the aspirations of Imhoff Waldorf School. They see the worthiness of our child-centred approach, and the nurturing and creative environment which thrives on cultural diversity.

Imhoff strives to support parents and children in retaining their cultural heritage while building a solid foundation for their education. This plays a key role in social enrichment and fosters an integrated community of belonging, respect, equality and diversity through shared responsibility.

To meet these aims, and needs, we have a dedicated Sponsorship Programme through which ten percent of the children in our school are supported.

Due to the high levels of unemployment, household budgets are very strained. Large families often depend on one earner or small social grants.  Although many parents prioritise spending on education they cannot afford the fees. School life provides an important source of stability for the children. Our current aim is to cover the children’s school tuition as many do not have full sponsorship.
