It is a privilege for me to stand at the helm of an exciting and vibrant faculty which offers great opportunities for the young people of Melkbosstrand. Since its inception in 2006, MPS has offered education with a difference to our community. It is our goal that each and every student that leaves their footprints on MPS soil, will not only love their school years, but truly be prepared to face life’s challenges. We offer our students the best possible opportunities to become confident, thoughtful individuals who are prepared for adulthood, in this exciting and increasingly global world.

Aristotle once said, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”


Therefore as we impart education to match the advancement of technology and globalization, we march our students ahead with the MPS’ ethos of moral values and Christian principles. We endeavour constantly to instil the qualities of our 6 Pillars within our students and strive to help them grow into sensitive and responsible citizens of the next generation.

Our caring and inclusive approach to education sets a high standard for our students to achieve and perform at their very best. From the moment a new MPS student joins our school community we want them to feel a sense of happiness and belonging, as this is essential to their future success. Our enthusiastic and dedicated staff deliver our programmes in an environment that is intimate, friendly and attuned to every specific educational need. Our classes are relatively small and this creates an atmosphere where students feel relaxed and comfortable, which allows for healthy relationships between student and teacher. The staff, students and parents are the heartbeat of this thriving learning community.

I look forward to welcoming you to Melkbosstrand Private School.

Warm regards,
Allan Norton
