Onse Skool is a pre-school facility in the Aprilskloof, Paardeberg, about 15km from Malmesbury. Our children and teachers are from the surrounding farming community and all of us work together: the parents, staff, farmers, sponsors and the Maranatha Trust. Together we learn how to run and maintain a sustainable school with four core values: Excellence, Joy, Integrity and Cooperation.
