Durbanville Primary School is situated in the heart of the wheat and wine farming areas about 45 km North of Cape Town. The town is surrounded by centuries old wine and dairy farms. The ethos of the school rests on four pillars namely: Academic; sport; culture and spiritual. We can proudly say that all four pillars in our school share equal status.
The history of "Our Own" dates back to the previous century when farmers brought their animals to outspan at Pampoenkraal. After a settlement developed here, a school was established in 1851 for 105 pupils. Later the name Pampoenkraal was changed to D'Urban and in 1886 the name changed to Durbanville. This ended the confusion between the two D'Urbans, the one in the Cape and the other in Natal. The children from the old family farms, Loevenstein, Welgemoed, Stikland, Oosterzee and others, all attended school in Durbanville.
