About Us

Debbie Kellerman started the school in 2001 for her own child.  Since then the school has expanded to both Primary and High School.

Insight Learning Centre is a private educational facility funded by school fees and private investors. Insight Learning Centre is registered as an examination centre with the Department of Education.

Insight Learning Centre strives to fill the gaps in the present education system by deviating from the norm in the following manner:

  • “We limit the number of learners per class to an average of 16, thereby ensuring maximum and personal attention”.
  • “We create a stimulating environment conducive to the effective transferral of information”.
  • “We create an organized, disciplined and safe environment for all learners”.
  • “We create a loving and caring environment in the classroom”.

Mission

Our mission is to create a community of empowered learners in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. Every learner will be inspired and challenged to learn, grow, and accomplish academic, social and vocational goals. Insight Learning Centre, with cooperation of the community, parents and learners, will provide a safe, supportive environment with a variety of educational opportunities to empower each learner to develop the attitudes, behaviors, skills, and knowledge to become self-assured, responsible, and economically productive citizens.

Vision

Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where learners will recognize and achieve their fullest potential, so that they can make their best contribution to society.
Insight Learning Centre believes that every child is entitled to enjoy his/her childhood. They should be valued for their individuality, culture and heritage. They should be encouraged to develop their full potential in a stimulating and caring environment.

Values

The school is value driven.  Learners are taught to strive at the following values:
  • Respect
  • Self-discipline
  • Responsibility
  • Trustworthiness
  • Honesty
  • Loyalty
  • Love for God and people

The school follows a strict code of discipline. Among many other policies the Anti-bullying and Anti-drug policy are followed.
