Paarl School is in Brackenfell and accommodates learners with:Cerebral Palsy,Specific Learning Disabilities and/or Physical Disabilities. It was the realisation of a dream of the Dutch Reformed Church concerning the care for cerebral palsied learners, which already started in 1957.
A house in Paarl, as well as 8,5 hectares outside Paarl, was donated during the 1960’s to the “Paarlse Komitee vir Serebraal Gestremdes”, a sub-committee of the Social Services Committee of the Church. After years of deliberation with the Department of National Education, the founding of a school for cerebral palsied learners was approved. There were however certain articles of agreement which stated that the school be nearer to an urban area, for the recruitment of specialised staff, as well as close to a well equipped hospital, in this case the Tygerberg Hospital.
Mission: MISSION STATEMENT We follow a multidisciplinary team approach and as a resource centre we provide support and training opportunities to the broader community. VISION Our aim is to fully develop the potential of learners at Paarl School and as a resource centre to serve the broader community of learners with special educational needs.

Dit is met groot hartseer dat ons vandag ‘n kosbare oudleerder en ook oud kollega van Paarl-skool moet groet. Celeste Cupido was ‘n dierbare mens met ‘n groot omgee hart. Sy het altyd ‘n positiewe ingesteldheid gehad selfs al het sy so baie uitdagings in die gesig gestaar. Sy was 'n inspirasie vir almal met wie sy in aanraking gekom het met. Celeste het diep spore in ons harte gelaat en ons sal haar altyd onthou. Celeste jy gaan voorwaar baie gemis word. Rus in vrede. Ons innige simpatie en meegevoel aan die familie in hierdie harsteer en moeilike tyd.
Paarl School celebrates Nasional Book Week.
Not even social distancing can keep our learners away from their books.
At Paarl school we are very fortunate to have a library full of lovely books to read.
Paarl School sadly says goodbye to Athontyhezs Hufkie (past learner); an interesting and intelligent boy with a BIG personality. He had his fair share of challenges, but always reminded us that one day in heaven all his battles would be gone. Enjoy your heavenly body Athontyhezs. You will always be remembered here at Paarl School. Our sincere condolences to his parents.
Ons is baie trots op Elanza wat spesiaal 'n leesboekie geskryf het vir ons Graad 1A leerdertjies. Dankie Lanzie!!

Dankie aan Laerskool Durbanville Primary vir hierdie pragtige gebaar. Die ondersteuningspan by Paarl-skool waardeer julle omgee harte!
Seen "Rising Phoenix" on Netflix yet?
“Global Rising Phoenix Conversation” on 29 August-SAVE THE DATE.
To celebrate the release of the film, you’re also invited to join a global conversation on the weekend that originally would have seen great sporting action at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
On Saturday 29 August we are inviting Para athletes, teams, officials, friends, family and fans to come together around the world to ‘press play’ at the same time on Netflix, enjoy Rising Phoenix together from the comfort of their homes and to share their reactions to the incredible stories in the film. Netflix, HTYT Films and IPC will be joining the conversation primarily on Twitter, but other channels can also be used. We’d love for the volunteer workforce to join in too with your friends and family – it’s a fantastic opportunity for them to see the amazing work that we do.
The event will take place on Saturday 29 August starting at 5.00AM Australian Eastern Standard Time / 12.00PM Pacific Time / 3.00PM Eastern Time / 4.00PM Brasília Time / 8.00PM British Summer Time/ 9.00PM Central European Summer Time / 9.00PM South Africa Standard Time.
Elite athletes and insiders reflect on the Paralympic Games and examine how they impact a global understanding of disability, diversity and excellence.

Thank you Masks For Medics for your generous donation of PPE for our nursing staff and therapists.
Masks For Medics
Paarl-skool/Paarl School is a special needs school and daycare in Brackenfell whose staff received PPE from Masks for Medics last week. Anthea Norman one of the physiotherapists at the school sent us this wonderful letter of thanks.
"Thank you very much to Masks for Medics for the PPE's which were donated to Paarl School therapists and nurses. Without your assistance, we would not have felt adequately protected to treat our learners from such diverse backgrounds who have various physical disabilities. The nurses are now able to suitably protect themselves when caring for Covid-19 positive patients in the isolation room. The physiotherapists are especially grateful for the KN95 masks and gowns which are essential during respiratory therapy and being in close contact when treating paediatric neurology patients.
The Occupational Therapists provide therapy to various learners which involve close contact for prolonged periods.
The speech-language therapists feel safe and protected during feeding therapy, oral and hearing screenings.
This donation from Masks for medics has made it possible for the Paarl School therapists and nurses to confidently treat our paediatric patients and prevent the spread of Covid-19 within our school environment".
To all our, incredibly generous supporters and donors thank you for your support and for those of you who have not yet donated to Masks for Medics please donate NOW https://www.backabuddy.co.za/champion/project/masks-for-medics
