A brief message from Mr Foster

Canaan College is an Independent, new and unique school in Umlazi that recognises the need to be educating our children in a way that is relevant to them and the world that they are destined to thrive in and make a positive impact on. Through our futuristic curriculum and teaching, we are equipping our children to become leaders in their communities, country and world.

We invite you and your children to join us as we embark upon this exciting adventure into the future together.

What We Believe

At Canaan College, we believe in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors. By feeling valued and respected, as an individual, we seek to encourage each person to show value and respect towards one another, joining together to build a happy, forward thinking community.
