About Our School
Established in 1991, the school was named after its co-founding siblings, now Directors, Bertha and Harry Kumwenda. With a very humble beginning of a township crèche, and with only three learners, the school first opened its doors in Endulwini, at St Mathews Catholic Church premises. The school improved each passing year with the introduction of the Primary school phase as the children graduated from the pre-school. The school prides itself as the first black owned private school, in the township, to have English as its Home Language and Afrikaans, IsiZulu and Sepedi as First Additional Languages. Bertharry English Private School is located in the heart of the vibrant Township of Tembisa in Gauteng Province. It is situated at 14 Mapungubwe Street, Temong Section, Tembisa. Most of the learners that are enrolled at the school reside within Tembisa itself. We also do have learners that come from areas as far as Olifantsfontein, Kaalfontein, Midrand, Birch Acres, and even beyond. Our reach has gone beyond Tembisa.
