Linksfield Primary Turns 69 this July

The school was established on 31st July 1950.

During this time the school has had many successes and has seen a few Principals lead the way...

In memory of this a list of the Principals is given below:

  • First Principal - Mr R M van der Schyff (7 years in office).
  • Second Principal - Mr H F Puxley - 1st January 1960 to 31st December 1980 (21 years in office).
  • Third Principal - Mr V V MacDonald - 1st January 1981 to 31st January 1994 (13 years in office).
  • Current Principal - Mr A W Bridges, appointed 1st April 1994.

The school has undergone considerable amount of face lifting, improvements and addition of educational aids since 1994 some these are:

Perimeter wall around the swimming pool introducing the waiting area.

  • Paving of waiting areas, school entrance and staff parking area
  • The sports field terraces been rebuild
  • A sports pavilion has been added
  • The swimming pool area has been re-paved with awnings put up on the new swimming pool spectator terrace.
  • The main gate has been move and new security camera added including the hall
  • The hall floors are completely refurbished
  • All classrooms have smart boards
  • The introduction of iPads is the latest introduction at the school, giving learners the added advantage of multimedia learning aids, preparing learners for the eventual disappearance of the desktop PC as the world moves rapidly into smart devices in place of the desktop device.
  • The volley ball courts have been completely resurface and the surrounding area refurbished.

We look forward to the next 69 years of educating up and coming future leaders of our community.
