A warm welcome from our Executive Head, Ivanka Acquisto
A warm welcome to our school of WONDER – St Andrew’s School for Girls, here in Senderwood, Johannesburg.
St Andrew’s is a 119-year old girls’ school with magnificent heritage buildings, surrounded by beautiful gardens and state-of-the-art facilities for academics, sport and culture. Continuous development and reflection ensure that we remain relevant in a dynamic society.
In view of promoting girls and science, our inspiring STEAM Centre (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) was completed in 2020.
St Andrew’s is passionate about education and its focus is on developing women leaders for the future, who care about others and want to use their privilege to eradicate the injustices and inequalities of the past to make a positive difference in the world.
St Andrew’s is rooted in the Christian values of Balance, Integrity, Grace, Community, Accountability and Trust. We are supported by our association with the Anglican Church and the services in our beautiful chapel, where the statue of Saint Andrew himself stands as a sentinel.
This school is filled with special people including enthusiastic and committed educators and children who colour our vibrant atmosphere. Each day, contributions are made for generations to come. St Andrew’s is committed to leaving a proud legacy. Our alumni are testimony to the exemplary standard of education received here. Our most recent success story is the appointment of old girl, Tsakani Maluleke on 1 December 2020 as the Auditor-General of South Africa.
Our campus provides holistic education in four schools:
- Preschool (boys and girls from 3 months to 5 years)
- Junior School (girls from grade 0 – grade 7)
- Senior School (girls from grade 8 – grade 12)
- uBambiswano: our Saturday School, which impacts children from the surrounding communities of Daveyton and Etwatwa. We celebrated 30 years of its existence in 2020 – a wonderful legacy.
