Message from Mrs Borello – head of high school

Experts in the educational field have commented that the 21st century learners need to be global citizens; they must be able to use the web 2.0 technology and the social networking opportunities it opens; their physical classroom should move beyond the walls of the traditional classroom and their learning must promote interdisciplinary activities which are project and research based. Our patron saint, St Angela Merici –  living in the 15th century and a woman ahead of her time –  encouraged her followers to embrace change.  “Act, move, believe, strive, hope and pray with all your heart and without doubt, you will see marvellous things”, she said.  At Brescia House School we see God’s miracles in our learners every day.

The School succeeds in delivering to society learners who meet these criteria –  each young woman is supported in all facets of her development to achieve to her full potential.  Learners are able to utilise their opportunities to contribute positively to the future of South Africa and the global society – they are highly skilled, behave ethically, are tolerant, service-oriented and mindful of the environmental needs for conservancy in order to ensure a safe and prosperous future for all citizens.

Brescia House School embraces diversity and follows the counsel of St Angela, our patron saint, to “live in harmony, united together in one heart and one will. Be bound to one another by the bond of charity, treating each other with respect, helping one another, bearing with one another in Christ Jesus; if you really try to live like this, there is no doubt that the Lord our God will be in your midst”.
