Schools at Olympus Country Estate I will be very frank with you. I hated school! Not learning per say, but in the preliminary stages of my intellectual and academic development, say between the ages of 8-14, I could not stand to be in a classroom. Id like to say I wanted to be at home (like one of the beautiful homes in Olympus Country Estate). The fact of the matter is I was more concerned with making friends, video games and sports – all of which I was spectacular at doing. I was not so sterling at being a good and disciplined student. My, mother believing so staunchly in my intellectual capacity and potential was particularly frustrated by my academic performances. Although she did later go on the record as saying that she also believed that I was not particularly stimulated and captivated by the course work and the content of our lessons and curriculum, therefore as would make sense, I did not invest much time and effort. I feel as though the average child is this way. We would rather engage and propagate what we enjoy, have little concern and regard for what we do not and rarely have the presence of mind, gravity of understanding and personal resilience to go on to excel at what we do not enjoy. I think some people continue like that into their adult years.

Places of Worship at Olympus Country Estate While, I did not have the privilege of growing up in any of the spectacular properties for sale in Olympus Country Estate, I grew up in the church. Most South Africans and African Americans do (I am a cultured little blend of both) – Anglican on both my maternal grandmother and grandfather’s side; also known as Episcopalian across the mighty Atlantic. From as far back as my waning memory can recollect, I have been instructed in the ways of the lord, our father God, and learned of the sacrifice of his son, his own flesh and blood, Jesus Christ, for the atonement of all of mankind’s festering sin. I was taught to both fear and revere the Almighty, and to marvel at his vast and unfathomable creations both big and small and to speak, act and think in his glorious name.

In place of gates of lightning and hurricanes, we see the instalment of barriers equal in their effectiveness in keeping out intruders – of iron and steel, strengthened fences with eyes, both human and machine, watching one’s every move in lending to the excellent security provided to all properties within Olympus Residential Estate, Said mechanical eyes being as a result of the installation of high-resolution, infra-red cameras that cover every angle and aspect of all portals of entry, whilst a human element in the form of highly trained security guards (these ain’t no mall rent-a-cop people) survey their surroundings with an intuition, a “sixth sense” if you will, born of years of training and on-the-job experience. In short, no one’s getting in or out without them knowing about it, as the aforementioned access regulations are enforced through key-card entry and the attaining of all personal details of visitors to the estate.

Amenities at Olympus An estate is not made solely by its architectural genius, nor wide streets, nor the trees that line them, their cover reminiscent of the sheltering arms of a higher power. An estate is made by the relationship between its residents, their homes within, and the surrounding conveniences that add to the quality of their lives. For how happy would one be if one of necessity drove hours merely to conduct one’s business? How safe would one feel if, after an accident, it required a lengthy trip to reach adequate medical care? Would you prefer that schools be a five, or fifty minute drive away? With Zeus-like vigour, Olympus Country Estate rose to obliterate these challenges through excellent proximity to a multiplicity of top quality shopping centres, schools, private hospitals and more. It is doubtful that you will ever need to travel more than 15 minutes from the entrance gate to achieve what is desired (okay fine, lets factor in traffic and say 16 minutes).
