We attend Bethlehem Dutch Reformed Church and the girls also participate in the Sunday school. Wednesday evenings, Rev. Jannie Maree presents us with Bible study. The children enjoy it very much.

The girls attend three different schools: Voortrekker High School, Truida Kestell Primary School and Maluti Hoogland School.
