Why choose us


There is plenty of wrong when you suffer from a disability, which is why at The Ethembeni School, we forget about what is wrong, focus on what is right and develop a strategy for individual students to learn and accomplish greatness.

Some may feel that this is impossible, but with consistency and a little bit of patience, the most amazing things are possible.

Just ask the staff of The Ethembeni School, who are witness to this every single day.

  • “To cherish something is to care for it deeply, to treasure it, like the way you cherish the time you spend with a favorite person you don't see often. The verb cherish is related to words that mean “costly” and “beloved.”
We are so proud of our little bookworm here and her beautiful reading 🤗💛
Also, to our @comradesmarathon runners, cherish these last 30 odd days until the marathon - one month to go! 🇿🇦🤸🏼‍♂️✨ We back you all.
  • Hippo Therapy is just wonderful + the highlight to some of our special children’s week. 
Not only does is make us very happy + more responsive to intervention + therapy, but it targets the core muscles for improved posture + control. This helps with a number of things such as strength for sitting/ standing better, supporting our diaphragm + lungs for supported airflow for speech + sensory stimulation for proprioception (getting feedback from the muscles and senses). Overall it’s just darn fantastic. 
PS: Happy Friyay 🤸🏼‍♂️
  • as we bid Summer and all the hot days farewell, don’t forget to still stay hydrated, especially all those @comradesmarathon runners who are training.
  • In collaboration with Moses Mabhida Stadium, Achilles South Africa are hosting a fundraising event in support of our school and Achilles SA.
