At the foot of well- known Mganu Mountains, next to the huge Ntenetyana Dam, is the best school of agriculture known as Tyelimhlphe Agricultural School. Its existence can be understood in the context of rural development programme. The school prides itself for its fascinating history. The school derives its name from the famous cave of Tyelimhlophe in the mountains of Mganu, where a fountain broke out- a fountain that continually supplies water to the great Ntenetyana Dam. The school seeks to be a fountain of knowledge to the learners in the field of Agriculture and Science. As the only agricultural school in the entire region of Umzimvubu in Mount Frere, it attracts learners from diverse backgrounds.
The school seeks to render quality education by offering agricultural subjects, inclusive of all races and sexes for purposes of producing life-long and multi-skilled learners in the area of agriculture and science, who will be of public value to the economy of our country.
In order to achieve the envisaged vision, we need a dedicated, cooperative and enthusiastic school community through participation, involvement of all stakeholders in all decision making processes and implementation of curriculum which is reflective of agriculture and science.
