A SPECIAL SCHOOL FOR SPECIAL CHILDREN
You are visitor number since 14 January, 1998.
The Mary Harding School was originally established in 1980.
This school is one of many "special schools" in the Western Cape to cater to the education and training of mentally handicapped children.
A bequest from the late Mary Harding in 1980 gave this school sufficient impetus and the necessary finance to open its doors to those children previously overlooked by the general public as "uneducable."
We now have 22 classes, a staff of 120, and a hostel facility which is home to 89 children from all over South Africa.
Our total student body numbers 240!
Our school motto -- "Why should they be Helpless?" says it all.
have come a long way since then, and the road ahead
looks, at times, hard to travel. But the
journey continues as we face each new day with renewed
vigor, confidence and caring for each other and the
special children in our care.
