Con Amore is a school for learners with severe intellectual disabilities and specific learning requirements in Kempton Park.
We have 368 learners ranging from 6 to 18 years in our school. These learners are from all over the East Rand in our feeder area namely Kempton Park, Modderfontein, Edenvale, Rabie Ridge, Germiston and parts of Boksburg and Benoni. Special schools like ours are few and far between thus we are obliged to serve such a large feeder area. Our furthest route in Germiston is 85 km in the morning and another 85 km in the afternoon.
Our Vision and Mission
Every learner feels valued and inspired in our innovative education system.
The mission of Con Amore School is to assess all learners as individuals, build and implement support structures and develop learning programs in all areas that will benefit the intellectually challenged learner according to his/her disability.
The Con Amore staff comprises of an array of different professions, we have therapists, teachers, classroom assistants and a host of other staff members, all of which have a passion for their profession as well as every single pupil in the school. We also have several Con Amore Alumni that work at the school.
The curriculum at Con Amore is specifically designed to cater to the student's needs as well as their abilities. Different phases at the school provide different learning opportunities. The school also believes in teaching the pupils abilities that they could use to generate in income in the future.
Why We Do It
Many of our learners are from previously disadvantaged communities and impoverished homes and are therefore unable to pay school fees. We are a registered NPO (see letterhead) and have Section 18A status thus donations to our organization will be tax deductible in the hands of the donors.
It is a privilege and an honor to be able to help children with special needs, to help and guide them along the way, to see them grow and experience the impossible.

The Con Amore Toy Library has a variety of educational as well as entertainment themed toys available for parents to book out, much like a traditional library. This gives children the opportunity to play with these toys, without requiring the parents to pay for them.
