Whitestone Primary School

Whitestone is an Independent School that was first established in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in 1942. Located on 28 hectares of attractive granite kopje countryside in the southern suburb of Burnside, the school site is rich in a wide variety of indigenous flora and fauna and offers endless opportunity for exploration and study. A blend of rocky outcrop and mixed woodlands together with well appointed sports fields makes it a playground paradise for children.

We are truly proud of the enviable standards of education we have established over the many years of our existence. As you browse through this site, we are sure that you will become convinced that Whitestone will be your primary school of choice in Zimbabwe.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the school is to provide an enjoyable and successful learning environment, in order to produce well adjusted, creative individuals who fulfill their potential and are prepared for living and will contribute meaningfully to society.

School Objectives

At Whitestone we believe it important not only to teach the children virtues such as honesty, humility, self-discipline, concern for others and good manners, but also to encourage each individual to discover and develop their unique qualities and talents. We do not force children to conform to a stereotyped mould. The teachers are therefore concerned not only with the academic progress of our pupils but also with their general welfare, happiness and spiritual, social and physical growth. Our teachers are available to talk to children or parents on any matter of concern. A firm and fair system of discipline is part of the Whitestone philosophy and it is considered as a shared responsibility between home and school.
