A brief message from Mrs Cibane

Canaan College is an entrepreneurship school characterised by equipping learners with future focused education to allow them to become competitive in both local and global markets. Above and beyond the CAPS curriculum, the school has included programmes that set it apart from the rest of the schools in our area. These are: Entrepreneurship, Emotional Intelligence, Coding and Robotics and blended learning.

We are a Christian based school that is firmly rooted in Christian principles and values such as respect and honesty.

We invite you to join our warm family as we continue to write our history in the books of Umlazi Township and Education at large.
