Our School


AGITE STATIM, which means DO IT NOW, has been an inspiration to many of Irene’s past learners. The school badge was designed by Mrs Schormann. Mr Pretorius introduced the motto which was inspired by two poems given to him by Mrs Monica van der Byl. The motto was incorporated into the badge in 1970.

and nurture learners, developing
the full potential of every learner through
