SAHETI SCHOOL

SAHETI School was established in 1974 by a group of founders under the leadership of Advocate George Bizos. Its doors were open to all, welcoming widely diverse communities to share in its values-driven, universal education.

The campus has evolved as part of a unique design, which has attracted much attention and even professional recognition in the form of awards from the Institute of South African Architects. From the outset, SAHETI’s approach to education was dynamic and innovative. The school has become known for its enlightened teaching methods, consistent academic excellence and rich cultural life.

The expansive grounds have allowed for development of enviable sports facilities, to cater for a wide variety of activities. Today this vibrant school ranks amongst the top independent schools in South Africa. Its enrolment of about 1300 boys and girls is spread over a Playschool, Pre-Primary School, Primary School and High School.

SAHETI is situated in Senderwood, Bedfordview, on the eastern outskirts of Johannesburg.

Testimonials

"Know Thyself"

Exploring our school motto

“The school motto, ‘Know Thyself’ dates back to ancient Greece and was expounded upon by the likes of Socrates. For me it speaks to the need for self-reflection, through which we will begin to understand our need for God and our dependence on each other. I believe that a good understanding of self will also spur us on as individuals towards training our bodies, mind and character so that we may maximise our God given potential and fulfil the calling upon our lives.”
Mr Warwick Taylor (Former Executive Headmaster 2014-2022)

In the context of twinning between SAHETI School and Saint Catherine’s British School in Athens, an interview took place on Tuesday 20 February, with the Cypriot Member of the European Parliament and renowned journalist, Loukas Fourlas. Students from various schools in Greece and the Greek diaspora participated. The event was titled Cyprus-Greece-Diaspora. Schools from every continent took part: Australia, Asia, Europe and Africa.
The interview focused on the broader theme of our twinning which involves the promotion of the Greek culture abroad through political and cultural actions.
Our students Maria Koutsourai (Grade 8) and Costas Moustakis (Grade 9) posed interesting questions to the MEP, which were praised by the interviewee. We are proud of this initiative and our wonderful students! A special word of thanks to Keshav Naidoo & Rohan Mungal, our multimedia specialists, for their assistance.
Στο πλαίσιο της αδελφοποίησης της Σχολής ΣΑΧΕΤΙ με το Saint Catherine’s British School της Αθήνας, πραγματοποιήθηκε την Τρίτη, 20 Φεβρουαρίου συνέντευξη του Κύπριου ευρωβουλευτή και καταξιωμένου δημοσιογράφου, Λουκά Φουρλά από μαθητές διαφόρων σχολείων της Ελλάδας και της ομογένειας. O τίτλος της εκδήλωσης ήταν Κύπρος-Ελλάδα-Ομογένεια. Συμμετείχαν σχολεία από κάθε ήπειρο: Αυστραλία, Ασία, Ευρώπη και Αφρική.
Η συνέντευξη βασίστηκε στο ευρύτερο θέμα της αδερφοποίησης που είναι η προώθηση του ελληνικού πολιτισμού στο εξωτερικό μέσω πολιτικών και πολιτιστικών δράσεων.
Οι μαθητές μας Μαρία Κουτσουράι (Β΄Γυμνασίου) και Κώστας Μουστάκης (Γ’ Γυμνασίου) έθεσαν ενδιαφέροντα ερωτήματα στον ευρωβουλευτή, τα οποία επαινέθηκαν από τον συνεντευξιαζόμενο.
Είμαστε περήφανοι για αυτή τη δράση και για τους υπέροχους μαθητές μας! Ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ στους Keshav Naidoo & Rohan Mungal για την βοήθεια τους με το οπτικοακουστικό υλικό.

Congratulations to all teams 👏

We are grateful to share that our High School students have collected and donated school shoes, takkies, and sneakers to the Merchants of Light initiative. This initiative hands out uniforms and shoes to children who are wearing shoes that are three sizes too small. Many of these students use wire to hold their shoes closed, and some do not even have a pair of shoes to wear to school. With the help of the Primary, Pre-Primary and Playschool, we collected over 200 pairs of shoes for these children in need. We are proud to have stepped up, and given back to our wider community. Thank you SAHETIANS! #SAHETISchool #SAHETI50 #KnowThyself #SAHETIStepsUp #ChangeAgentSA
