Education – The Media Centre

Children of all employees have their school fees paid by Timberlea. In addition to this there is a media centre and facilitator on each farm site, which aims to supplement the facilities and education provided at school. Timberlea is also registered as a Chess school and competes in inter-schools competitions.

Mission Statement

  • To provide an educational after care centre for the children whose parents work on Timberlea Farm.
  • To address the inadequacies of the current educational system at the under-privileged schools attended by these children, focusing on numeracy and literacy skills.
  • To help develop these children to their full potential by providing a safe environment where the child has the opportunity to improve himself/herself both academically and socially.
  • To guide the child by instilling the right values – ensuring that he/she can differentiate between what’s right and wrong
