Our Facilities

Amashova Bike Safety Park

The Amashova Bike Safety Park is used to not only teach road safety but as a tool for developing cycling skills. Despite wobbly beginnings, our learners quickly blossom into competent cyclists. This builds their confidence and develops their understanding of reaching their full potential physically, mentally and socially.

Balega Therapy Park

A park which features motor play activities, including slides, swings and balancing equipment. This equipment is then combined with FUN challenges for our learners to enhance their vital cognitive, social skills and of course a strong spirit for adventure!

Grade R Play Area

Leaners go to play in the park twice a week during their outdoor free-play time. This is an important an exciting time for learners to just enjoy the jungle gyms, sandpit and so much more which are used to develop their muscles and coordination. Most importantly this time allows learners to interact and support each other in a neutral space.

Media Centre

The Media Centre is quite the exciting and engaging space. It allows for the children to have access to a Smart-Board which makes for exceptional interactive learning while accommodating multiple learning styles. This space is also perfect for visually impaired learners who are able to clearly view interactive lessons thanks to projected imaging and listen to presentations via a stereo speaker system.

Braille Box

This exceptional machine is something the Ethembeni School is extremely fortunate to have. A printer which essentially has the ability to print out learning materials which are suitable for visually impaired learners. This means that no matter the learning program, the Ethembeni School will be able to prepare notes for our visually impaired students.


Our School has been fortunate enough to erect a library for our students. This facility offers reading materials for learners with a great emphasis on the foundation phase (our beginner readers). We are proud to say that we have had great success with our reading initiative which has allowed our foundation phase learners to master their reading skills.

Library for the Blind

In 2019,  Ethembeni School was fortunate enough to receive, from the KwaZulu Natal Department of Arts and Culture an incredible new Mini Library For The Blind and print-handicapped learners, which was officially launched on Friday 22 November 2019 by MEC : ARTS , CULTURE, SPORT AND RECREATION , Ms Hlengiwe Mavimbela  . The inclusion of this Library facility has created an opportunity for learners to engage in a comprehensive range of local and international reading material. Now that the foundation has been built we cannot wait to expand even further!
