The importance of EQ at Canaan College


See, Think, Innovate

Being an Entrepreneur requires you to have many skill sets. None more important than the manner in which you are able to effectively make decisions.

Pastoral care and Spirituality.

Pastoral care and Spirituality of all learners, staff and parents forms a foundation to enable an environment where all can flourish as an individual, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.

We have a dedicated team of local Pastors and religious leaders from within our own school parent body and Umlazi Christian communities.

The dedicated weekly Tutor periods for Grade 4 to Grade 12 affords learners the opportunity to participate in discussions on various topics, to collaborate, build friendships, receive assistance in various areas of school and their own personal lives.

Personal growth is promoted through numerous courses that address leadership, social skills and etiquette, personal effectiveness and public speaking.

What we believe

The core of the Canaan experience is relationships, and we look forward to welcoming
you and your family to experience firsthand the power of Canaan education.

Our schools strongly emphasize entrepreneurial skills development. Creativity, innovation and academic excellence is at the core engagement with learners
