Capella House is an independent pre- and primary school situated in the beautiful Noordhoek/ Kommetjie area. We are a varied community of families from all over Cape Town's southern suburbs and peninsula, who cherish conscious parenting and strong relationships.
Our name comes from the Capella star, the brightest star in the constellation Auriga. It symbolises how we encourage children, parents and staff to shine in their possibilities, as individuals and collectively. At the same time the shield in our logo symbolises our responsibility to provide stability and exceptional education.
We believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. Fostering a lifelong love for learning, we teach our children to question, think, imagine, see, solve problems, understand subtleties and appreciate ambiguity.
'We are grateful for the school’s supportive environment, which is busy teaching our daughter how to live life to her fullest potential.'
4 stars in our logo:
Relationships: Engaging in meaningful, nurturing, communicative relationships which bring a greater sense of community – because life is about how we interact with others.
Individuality: Respecting and affirming each individual and building their self-esteem.
Curiosity: Encouraging creative, hands-on, imaginative education that inspires growth.
Accountibility: Empowering children, teachers and parents to be responsible for their actions.
'You can sense that everyone at the school believes in giving each child individual attention. Our son is at the best possible school for him.'
