Conference: Strengthening Christian schools and school founders

Our leitmotif


Proverbs 22,6


Start children off on the way they should go,

and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Important Announcement

Dear Ladies and Gentleman,

Due to a lack of participants, we regret to inform you that this year's Western Cape Conference will not be taking place. A special thanks to all those who showed an interest in the conference. 

We invite you to check out the article about our organisation in JOY! Magazine at the end of the March.

"The Lord bless you and keep you" -Numbers 6:24

Christian Pälchen


ICS-Christian School Founding is proud to invite you to the first Western Cape Christian School Conference!



The purpose of the Christian Schools Conference is to connect passionate Christian educators for the purpose of sharing resources, ideas and expertise.



We want to establish an exchange platform for schools, university students and for school founders. We would like to offer them the chance to learn from you and your experiences.



Thus, we will have exchange groups during the day and seminars. For the seminars we need your help: If your school has a school concept, fund raising concept, public relation concept or other experiences that would improve the work of Christian schools I would like you to share them with other participants. Presenting your concepts in a seminary on Saturdays would be a huge blessing for us all. Thank you!



Moreover, we offer a commissional work table and a job fair for university students and professionals. Senior experts or specialists (manager, physicians, speech therapists, occupational therapists etc.) who like to help Christian schools can get in contact with them.

We offer also for companies who are active in the educational sector an exhibition platform.

Wrap-up: 5 – 5:30 p.m. End of the conference: 6 p.m. The commissional work table, job fair and exhibition platform can be visited during the breaks.




Commissional work table

Here students can offer their services to schools, for example: writing a business plan, evaluating the school, writing a new webpage or working out a PR campaign, fundraising, etc. It is a win-win situation, allowing students to develop their skills and schools to profit from them!

Job fair

Students and professionals are welcome to take advantage of our job fair in which they can get in touch with schools to discuss future exchanges, employment opportunities, etc.



Since the goal of this conference is to set up an exchange platform for schools, we kindly ask for one contribution per school to share with others (e.g. a PR concept, fundraising concept, testing material, etc.) in an exchange group during the course of the conference.

Teachers:The conference will give you the chance to share your expertise and experiences with other Christian educators, learn from one another, build up your network and be encouraged! Those interested in school founding are also most welcome. A special School Founding Seminar based on the ICS Concept will be presented. For further information see:“School Founding Seminar”

University Students: Do you want to share your knowledge with Christian schools? Are you interested in getting to know other like-minded students and educators? Or do you want to see what career and exchange opportunities are available to you in the field of Education? Then you’ve come to right place! Whether you’re a student of Business, Education, Languages or more, your skills can be put to good use. Come to the conference to find out how!


Experts: Do you want to support Christian schools? Then you’ve come to right place! Whether you’re an expert of Business, Education, Languages, Ergotherapy, Psychology or more, your skills can be put to good use. Come to the conference to find out how!
