The COVID-19 Distress Fund

SAHETI School prides itself on providing a values-driven education where students are encouraged to realise their individual potential and aspire to excellence. The SAHETI family is one of our biggest strengths, while at the same time we are firmly rooted in the community, embracing all who share in our universal values.
