Striving for excellence

Providing each learner with the skills necessary in a fast-paced, changing world.

Excellentia

Midstream College is a parallel medium (with instruction in either Afrikaans or English) private school with a Christian ethos situated in the south of Centurion. The high school opened its doors in 2007, and our first grade 12s wrote the IEB final exam in 2009.

We are known for high academic standards, top quality teachers, and firm discipline. Our balanced learners and alumni thrive nationally and internationally in the academic, sport, cultural and social spheres. The spacious school grounds house some of the most modern facilities in the country, including a huge auditorium, indoor swimming pool and hockey astro turf.

The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.
–  William Arthur Ward

At Midstream College, our teachers are an inspiration to our learners. Our annual Belgian exchange programme and educational tours abroad are extremely popular. Our adventure club summits Mont-aux-Sources, goes kloofing in the Magaliesberg, river rafting on the Orange and diving at Sodwana Bay. The grade 10 Odyssey is a nine-day challenge not to be missed.

Quo Vadis? Semigrate to Midstream College and help shape our motto, Excellentia. Carpe Diem – make the most of the many opportunities Midstream offers.

OUR VALUES

from the headmaster's office

At the end of this busy and very successful term, I first and foremost want to pay tribute to our Heavenly Father who held and protected us in His Hand. May the love of Christ on the cross be embodied in our lives. I would like to wish every parent, learner, and teacher a wonderful, well-deserved Easter holiday.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our hugely successful open day last Wednesday. Thank you to every learner, teacher and parent who are all ambassadors of the College. A reminder to all that applications for new learners for 2025 close at the end of April.

I would also like to salute every teacher who contributed to the success of this term. A special word of thanks to the learners and parents for their participation and support during the past two months. The winter sport is in full swing, and we have already had derbies against Cornwall Hill College and Hoërskool Randburg. Good luck to every player and teacher who will sacrifice part of their holiday and represent the College in various provinces on the sport fields.

My wish for every learner is that they will experience the school as a place where they are happy, feel loved, supported and embrace opportunities to prepare themselves for life after school. May we all strive to create a safe, secure environment for our children.

What is home? My favourite definition is “a safe place,” a place where one is free from attack, a place where one experiences secure relationships and affirmation. It’s a place where people share and understand each other. Its relationships are nurturing. The people in it do not need to be perfect; instead, they need to be honest, loving, supportive, recognising a common humanity that makes all of us vulnerable. (Gladys Hunt)
