Nestled in the lush greenery of Canelands, Verulam, is Sunfield Home School. Established in 1972 this institution caters for learners with intellectual impairments. Sunfield Home School has been able to meet with the ever changing challenges of special needs education throughout the recent decade. The school humbly began with pre-fab buildings for classrooms operating with limited structures and resources but has now proper brick structures housing its various classes.

Initially the curriculum comprised of functional academics: Language & Mathematics; Life skills which included Pottery; Woodwork; Cookery; Music and Sport. The school has now expanded and also offers Maintenance; Agricultural studies; Hospitality and Hair & Beauty and Pre-Vocational training.

Sunfield Home School also consists of a hostel that provides around the clock care and support to both boarders and day scholars through nutritious dietician approved meals that have been specifically tailored to the needs of our special learners supporting a healthy lifestyle. Learners are exposed to new learning environments through educational outings.

As part of our adapted curriculum learners from the Pre-Vocational Unit attend on the job training at our local supermarkets where they are incorporated in the Deli, Fresh produce and Bakery departments. Learners are given the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship by selling their handcrafted products in the local community and the annual Sustainable Living Expo at the Durban Exhibition Centre.

Sunfield Home School also participates in outreach programmes raising awareness of people with disabilities i.e. Annual Autism Awareness Walk (April) and Casual Day (September).

We continue to strive for quality specialized education in assisting our learners to become productive members of society.
