Based in Somerset West is Methodist Primary School with principal Wilbur Hindley.
An interesting read published in October 2018 on the history of education in the Helderberg, can be read here
This school is the oldest one in the Helderberg Basin! It was founded back in 1852. Such a rich history must be coupled with a brighter future – to accomplish what the founding members intended all along – quality education for every learner. This is still our hope and mission for all our Western Cape Education Department schools.
Mr Hindley and his Senior Management Team have been part of our leadership development and management skills training sessions over the past four years. They have a beautiful school that sits in the heart of our vibrant CBD in Somerset West – will the community of businesses rally around this school to help transform it as an organisation? A well functioning and well resourced school will benefit our entire society in the years to come! Who will partner with Somerset West Methodist Primary School? The first seed of education in the Helderberg comes full circle…
