Alpha Primary School is one of the oldest schools in Lenasia. Apart from being the first school in this area, it has a proud and great historical legacy, I understand that the school moved from Kliptown to Lenasia in 1957. During its 45 years of existence thousands of learners have passed through its portals and in the process creating a very worthy and noble tradition; the tradition that we hope others will build upon and enhance.
