A place of Hope

Our 41 acre iThemba Campus continues to be an indigenous haven for flora and fauna. Our landscaping philosophy embraces the abundant diversity of indigenous plant species that we have been blessed with in KwaZulu-Natal. We hope to cultivate an appreciation and awareness for the diverse and unique ecosystem around us, both above and below the ground, bringing about a sense of ‘Biodiversity Stewardship’ and a responsibility towards leaving this legacy for those who follow.

Our team feels strongly about the importance of conservation and is actively participating in the narrative concerning Carbon Footprint Reduction. Through our #TreadLightly Campaign, we are undertaking to implement measures that reduce our carbon omissions, across campus and at the end of 2019, Waterfall Pre-Primary, located on our campus, had 64 solar panels installed on their roof as a substantial contribution towards this!


2016 marked a significant turning point for Focus on iThemba with the opening of Waterfall Pre-Primary on the iThemba Campus.  Shortly afterwards in January 2017, Waterfall Preparatory School was established and welcomed learners from Grade R to Grade 3 and in 2018, their facilities expanded to accommodate learners from Grades 4 to 7. Today, the iThemba Campus offers the benefit of an educational pathway, right from 12 months at Waterfall Pre-Primary to Grade 12 at Waterfall College and most recently, the addition of a Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) Centre.

Waterfall Schools is part of the greater sustainability programme for the longevity of Focus on iThemba, as the occupation of these classroom buildings results in funding being raised for our NPO.
