Welcome to The Wonder Academy of Excellence, an independent, faith-based, co-educational school catering to students from playgroup to grade 7. At our school, we prioritize small class sizes and foster a strong sense of community, nurturing mindful, conscious, grounded, happy, and healthy learners.

At the heart of our educational philosophy lies character education, instilling values of integrity, respect, compassion, responsibility and resilience.

Our meticulously crafted curriculum is designed to prepare young minds for the future. By igniting creativity and curiosity, we empower students from diverse backgrounds with a robust foundation to unlock their academic potential.

Join us on this remarkable educational journey where we inspire excellence, cultivate resilience, and celebrate the wonders of learning.

Inspiring a love for life-long learning

Our holistic pedagogical approach is underpinned by the intrinsic rewards of awe and wonder. We inspire a love for life-long learning by sparking awe and wonder at the extraordinary beauty, knowledge, and human potential created by God.

Our commitment lies in nurturing a generation of learners who are eager to expand their horizons, better themselves, and make meaningful contributions to society. This holistic approach addresses the development of the head, heart, and hands of our students.

The Head encompasses the intellectual growth, fostering cognitive abilities, analytical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, imagination, and logical reasoning.

The Heart encompasses the spiritual and emotional well-being of the child, nurturing their faith, morality, social development and personality growth.

The Hands symbolize the child’s active learning through physical movement and experiential discovery. We engage our students in sports, cultural activities, and community service projects, ensuring maximum participation and hands-on learning experiences.

At our school, we proudly draw inspiration from the esteemed Montessori Method of education, a child-centered approach that recognizes the value of nurturing the whole child—mind, body, and spirit. Our curriculum not only meets but surpasses the requirements set by CAPS (The National Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement) as outlined by the Department of Basic Education.

We invite you to join our vibrant learning community, where we foster a passion for knowledge, empower spirits, and guide young minds towards a future filled with boundless possibilities.

Extracurricular and cultural activities ​

Sport activities

We offer a diverse selection of activities, including swimming, soccer, cricket, karate, athletics, and our latest addition, archery, which has become a favourite among our learners.

Engaging in these sports not only hones athletic skills but also imparts valuable life lessons. Through participation in these activities, students learn discipline, develop accuracy, and build core strength. Archery, in particular, captivates learners as it cultivates focus, precision, and mental fortitude.

Join us in exploring the world of sports where physical abilities are enhanced, camaraderie is nurtured, and valuable character traits are fostered.
