A quality and meaningful education is a lifetime gift to a child.
EduStreams was founded as a viable alternative for secondary school students in Grades 7 -12 who cannot cope or develop in mainstream schooling.
Our school aims to provide a nurturing environment and community for students with learning difficulties, that do not fit the traditional academic box and have experienced schooling as a constant source of anxiety and frustration.
Our unique educational offering has a practical, vocational approach to prepare our students for the world of work and life beyond school.
Education is not about one size fits all. All learners should have opportunities to realize their potential and not find themselves lost in the schooling system.
This has become the EduStream’s motto and philosophy of “No child left behind”. EduStreams students have access to therapeutic and remedial support and tailored education plans. We offer our students a chance to enjoy learning again, in a meaningful and practical way.
EduStreams School aims to empower its students to persevere, to not be afraid to go out of their comfort zones and to feel self-worth and confidence again. Besides academic and vocational learning, students are encouraged to participate in a range of sports, culturals and outreach programmes, where they are taught to ‘give back’ to the communities around them.
Wendy Roux, the founder and director of EduStreams, developed the school out of a need for her own child’s special educational requirements. The vision was born for a school that would benefit not only her daughter, but other children struggling in mainstream academics.
Alan Nambiar was employed as a Headmaster by EduStreams School, to spearhead Wendy Roux’s vision. He has many years of experience in the local and international education sector.
The vision of the school ignited his passion to create a legacy for learners that learn differently.
EduStreams launches officially in January 2022.
The EduStreams Learning Pathways
1. Academic Stream
The students work towards obtaining a CAPS National Senior Certificate matric. Besides academic subjects, students are exposed to vocational, practical subjects as early as Grade 8 and 9. This helps to build a solid foundation for the vocational orientated subjects that they choose in the Grade 10 -12 FET phase. Students have the opportunity to participate in Physical Education during the term and ICT is taught as a skill cross curricular.
After graduation, students can apply for selected courses at universities, colleges, private institutions; as well as apply for learnerships or employment. Our academic stream has a focus on service industry career opportunities.

The GCE Technical Occupational Certificate is a qualification that empowers students with learning difficulties to gain employment or to study further. They are upskilled for industries such as Hospitality, Tourism, Carpentry, Agriculture, Hairdressing and Beauty. The qualification enables graduating learners to access further education at Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) colleges, private colleges or learnerships in their field of specialization. They can also enter the world of work.
The first-year targets students who are 14 turning 15 years of age or older. If a student is younger than this age category, they can join the Induction Year, giving them a seamless transition into the Technical Occupation Programme.
