H2 Primary School, is a Co-Ed English Medium School based in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape.
H2 Primary was established in the year 2000, Today the school boasts Grades R to Grade 7 with a total number of 352 learners, led by a faculty of 13 educators 1 non Academic, 3 Administrators and 6 support staff.
We believe in the Bill of Rights as enshrined in our constitution ,that every citizen has the right to basic quality education. We have adopted this preamble in our schools ethos.
H2 Primary opened it’s doors in January 2000. This was a clarion call to better education that was answered by the founding partners, who are educators in their own right. At the time, taking a holistic look at the state of our schools in Mthatha and the level of education that was offered, and also having been part of the very system ourselves at different institutions and at different levels, we knew we had to do something that would bring about effective and meaningful change in the way things were being done.
Deciding that, that change was and is not the sole responsibility of Government, we knew we would have to stand up and make that leap. We also instinctively knew that we would have to risk our own finances, give up our time and energy in order to effect and be proponents of that very change that we had identified. We needed to introduce a culture of quality, affordable education in the true spirit of vuku’zenzele.
This spirit is a corner stone of Governments social development agenda . That speaks to the mindset that we need to do for ourselves that which we are able to and that in the long term the benefits are not only felt individually but by our community and by and large by our society. In order to keep a firm handle on our industry and our competitors we created associations with a number of premier schools like ours in our province and nationally.
Diocesan School for Girls
St Andrews College
St Andrews College Prep
Vela Private School
Umtata Christian School
These schools mirror our ethos on which we have attained our “GRAVITAS”. We know as we did then that by forming these relationships and associations it not only allows us but them as well to take from each other that which will help facilitate that very attainable constitutional obligation of a ‘better quality education for all’.
