Irene Primary School was started in May 1901, during the Anglo-Boer War (1899 – 1902).
The school catered for the Boer children living in the Irene Concentration Camp.
We have a long and proud history, depicted through numerous photographs and original documents, which are housed in the school Reception. We continually strive to build on this proud heritage. We boast a high-calibre staff contingent, who work hard to not only educate our learners but develop them socially, morally and ethically.
Our staff hold the learners and each other to a high standard, and this has resulted in the school receiving numerous commendations from officials of the Gauteng Education Department, who visit the school to conduct various management and oversight functions.
We wish you a positive journey with the school and encourage you to get involved with your child’s school friends and families. This is a great way to quickly become a part of the Irene Primary School family.
Irene Primary School uses the School Communicator as our primary means of communication with parents. The School Calendar, various resources (Newsletters etc), as well as selected homework, are posted on the Communicator. Please download it today, so that you can stay up to date with school events.
