Crawford College Lonehill offers you a well balanced education. We have an outstanding reputation of providing a world class education and our matric results over the last ten years have been exceptional, but our commitment to excellence goes way beyond academics.
We have become very competitive in all sport and have a very strong cultural extra-mural programme. Music, Art, Drama, Debating and Public Speaking are our strengths and these provide wonderful opportunities for many students to develop their talents in these areas.
The combination of strong academics, excellent competitive sport and a diverse and vibrant cultural programme lays a platform for a balanced education and provides opportunities for a wide variety of students with different needs. In addition to the opportunities students are afforded to enrich themselves, the College encourages their involvement in community projects and initiatives through Community Outreach.
The focus at the College is on the individual. We encourage students to express themselves as individuals within the framework of the Code of Conduct. Leadership is developed by creating a climate where student opinion is valued and where students are encouraged to ask questions. The flexible multiform also allows for freedom of expression and the student involvement and participation in the College assemblies gives the students opportunities to grow in self-confidence.
The teachers appointed at the College are highly qualified, vibrant and passionate about their subjects. They are selected for their outstanding teaching ability, dedication and love of students. Positive, enthusiastic interaction with students is vital and students are encouraged to “Think, Understand and Apply”. The ambience in the classroom is one of warmth, excitement and mutual respect.
