South Africa: Orania Schools Bursting at the Seams

The New Observer, January 19, 2018

The Afrikaner settlement of Orania in South Africa—a project which has mapped out a survival strategy for Europeans in regions overrun by the Third World—is going from strength to strength and this year has seen its school population rise to unprecedented numbers.

A Facebook post made by the Oraniabeweging (Orania Movement) proudly boasts of the record enrolment at the beginning of the 2018 school year, with one of the town’s two schools having to hurriedly build extra classrooms to accommodate the new pupils.

According to the Facebook post, the Orania Christelik Volkseie Onderwys (Christian Own People Education, CVO) opened “with the largest number of pupils in its history” this year.

“For the first time, the school has more than 240 pupils. The school now employs more than 30 people, and four new staff members have had to be employed.”

During December 2017 and in the first two weeks of January 2018, the school has had to build a number of new classrooms on the school grounds, while the junior primary part of the school has had to be upgraded at a cost of more than R500,000.

The over 120 Volkskool Orania pupils based in Orania are joined by hundreds more around South Africa taking advantage of the long-distance online educational program offered by the school.
