Eden College achieves International Eco-status!
Eden College is one of the leading South African schools in the Eco and sustainable living sector. Most schools achieve their Gold Eco-status for a number of years and then a few are eventually rewarded with International Eco-School status. Eden College was awarded a Gold staus for the first time last year and has now achieved the International honour. This is fantastic news for our school and a great achievement for our community. We look forward to all of the eco-activities that occur at Eden throughout the year, but we are particulrly excited about the Annual Free Fresh Fest that will be held on Sunday 28 July 2013.

Continuing in the fine Academic tradition for which our school is well-known, the Class of 2012 also achieved a set of exceptional results. The average of 3,5 As per candidate means that half of all the results achieved were A symbolsm - a truly exceptional situation! Congratulations and well done to all of our pupils, parents and teachers - but in particular, to the Class of 2012!
