Hoërskool Garsfontein differs from the normal high school as the focus is on values rather than chasing success. Collectively, the spirit and caring attitude of the learners and teachers are factors that distinguish the school from its peers.
Situated in the east of Pretoria and founded in January 1988 with 340 learners, some 25 years later sees 1780 learners being schooled at Garsies.
The Gauteng Department of Education identified Hoërskool Garsfontein as one of the top four academic performers in Gauteng in 2012. This is a continuation of the performance over the past decade, which ensured that the school remained a top 10 academic performer in Gauteng.
How do you incorporate FUTURELIFE® on a daily basis?
The first rugby team use FUTURELIFE® during their training sessions. We also sell the FUTURELIFE® products at our school to all the learners and teachers. FUTURELIFE®’s professional dieticians give us nutrition tips and we incorporate these in our newsletters.
How do you feel about FUTURELIFE® as a brand and how would you describe it to others?
I think with all the parents that are worried about the food that kids eat today, it is important that our school makes sure that kids get the right nutrition. FUTURELIFE® is also a healthy meal that requires little fuss!
