John Wesley School in Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal unashamedly promotes Christian values, whereas government schools and many private schools in South Africa have consciously excluded religious instruction and prayer in schools.
We believe in one God and that the way to Him is through a relationship with Jesus Christ, His one and only begotten son. We believe that Jesus Christ died on a cross for us so that we could live.
We believe the Bible is the book of life. We stand for love, grace, integrity, honesty, empathy and unshakeable moral values.
We stand for knowing the difference between what is wrong and what is right, how to treat people with respect and to value the contributions they make, and to be accountable for our actions.
We stand firm on the belief that without a faith in God our children will face a future devoid of purpose and direction.
We believe that a faith in a living God and a life lived by Christian principals will ensure our children become “spiritually fit” and emotionally intelligent to deal with the challenges facing them in the future.
Individual scriptures are selected each week and discussed in class. These are sent home for further discussion with parents. We encourage this as part of our learner’s journey on discovering the word of God, through the living bible.
As a Ministry of the Pinetown Methodist Church we maintain a strong link with the minister and staff of the church. They attend our staff devotions, assembly devotions, special events and welcome our learners to the church for special Easter and Christmas carol services - a tradition upheld since the inception of the school.
Ask yourself if it’s enough for you to be giving your child the moral guidance they need - or if you should partner with a school that will echo the love, care and spiritual direction you give them at home?
