Blue Hills College
基本資料 | Information
Blue Hills College is a Christian Private School situated in Midrand, halfway between Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Established in 1996 by Chief Ndlovu, and David Mlauzi, Blue Hills College has evolved from being a small-inner city school to a well-established independent institution with boarding and an excellent academic record.
Originally located in the Johannesburg Central Business District under the name of St Paul’s, the school initially catered for both primary and high school learners. The primary school was unfortunately discontinued due to lack of adequate facilities. The early years were a very difficult period for the school.
THE EARLY YEARS
The school relocated to Braamfontein in 1998, where it grew from approximately 250 to over 400 learners, before the decision was taken in 1999 to move the high school to a larger, permanent location in Midrand in order to establish linked boarding facilities to accommodate learners living outside the region.
In preparation for growth by the year 2002 the school was run by its first board of Directors that included its founder members Mr. Chief Ndlovu , Mr. David Mlauzi joined by Mr. Roy Ndlovu. The school experienced remarkable growth by 2005 the school embarked on a further bigger challenge and built new classrooms to accommodate 560 learners. Mr. Nkululeko Mpofu joined the Directorship of Blue Hills College in 2006.
Determined to be a school of choice amongst the inner-city schools the school experienced rapid growth and there was need to allow growth for all that came into contact with Blue Hills College, both learner and educator.
By 2013 the board set out to re-establish a Primary school. Several suitable institutions were sought to assist the school and in 2016 Old Mutual Alternative Investments was identified. Blue Hills College Management demonstrated strong leadership and effective management structures, thereby ensuring dual positive outcomes of the investment – both for society, in terms of delivery of quality education, and for investors, in terms of a commercially acceptable return , Blue Hills Management Company, was selected as a partner by the fund’s three investors, namely Old Mutual Life Assurance Company South Africa, the Government Employees Pension Fund through its asset manager the Public Investment Corporation, and the Eskom Pension and Provident Fund.
A partnership between the Schools Investment Fund – located within the Impact Funds business unit of Old Mutual Alternative Investments - and Blue Hills Management Company (Pty) Ltd, was established and set to provide access to high quality, affordable education for future generations.
