Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint - Isaiah 40:31

About Edendale

Our History

Edendale Farm, Nooitgedacht, belonged to the Murray family and in the late 1800 early 1900’s, a German mission was started on a portion on 11 hectares on the farm. A church was built and in early 1900 a school was started by the wife of the missionary. This school existed as a mission school and when the mission was closed, it was continued as a school under the Bantu Education Department. When Anglo American bought the farm from Murray, for the Promat project, there was an agreement that the “mission school”, then a DET school, would always be “kept alive”.

Promat, an NGO with the mission of providing matric qualification for previously disadvantaged people, as well as doing in-service training for under qualified teachers from DET schools (local and rural), started on the farm in the late 1980’s. They were very well funded and a well equipped new campus was built on the sight of the mission. Sponsors and donations worldwide were received, even Phil Collins contributed – some of his royalty fees he contributed to the College.

Promat, however, was not equipped to handle a primary school and PEPPS was asked to take over, and privatize the little school of 50 students. R. Prenzler was asked to head up and develop the Edendale Independent school in 1991. A dream started with a vision to have an entire Edu-Centre, home for the homeless, church and leadership as well as skills training on this lovely campus. The little school flourished under the mission of “best education at lowest possible cost for the previously disadvantaged.”

When the building provided became too small, a piece of land was divided off the farm (11 hectares) and with funding from the IDT, Japanese Government and various smaller donors, a primary school was built. The school moved to the new campus and in 1999 the Primary school enrolled just under 400 learners. Parents requested a High School because their children had to leave the lovely country environment for schools in town.

In 2001 the Edendale High School was started and soon the building on the campus became insufficient for further development. In the meantime, Promat College started running into trouble after 1994 and eventually stopped functioning in 2001. The beautiful building was standing empty and many “fortune seekers” tried to lay hands on this lovely campus.
In 2002 Edendale received permission from Promat to use one part of the campus for the High School. At this point, Standard Bank, who held the mortgage on the Promat campus, had to liquidate Promat because of an enormous outstanding debt.
Edendale School started negotiations and proposal to the bank to allow the campus to continue with the dream of developing a community education and training centre as well as build a church and provide homes for the homeless. After four years of negotiations, the campus, as well as the farm, was donated to Edendale Independent School, now functioning under the name MAKHULONG EDU-CENTRE, the name meaning, “green pasture, place of everything, grace land” (from Psalm 23 in Sotho)!
