Petra is a co-educational Christian school, conceived in the hearts of the local Christian community. A Board of Trustees was established, and the school began in May 1987. Staff, parents and 130 children witnessed the opening of the new classroom block in May 1988. Since then, much more development has taken place with the school now catering for Grade 0-7. The equipping of the school with fields, sporting facilities, hall, etc is an on-going fulfilment of the overall vision.
