Foundation Phase overview

Pre-Primary Phase

OVERVIEW

School times for Grade R are from 7:40 - 13:20 every day.

It is important to send your little one to school before they start Grade 1.  They will become familiar with the routines and surroundings of formal schooling within a more nurturing environment.  They are prepared socially and a good foundation is established for formal education. This will relieve some stress when starting school in Grade 1.

The R area operates as part of the school, but little ones are taught in one of the three classrooms that are fenced off from the rest of the school-grounds with their own play area and bathrooms.

We encourage a love for learning and try to inspire confidence in our pupils, within a Christian framework.  We aim to inspire them to become enthusiastic and willing learners - whether they are completing puzzles, singing, painting or attending lessons in Mathematics, Literacy and Life Skills.

 

Foundation Phase

OVERVIEW

School times for Grade 1 - 3 are from 7:40 - 13:20 every day.

The Foundation Phase provides a sound foundation for learners from Grade 1 to 3. Classes have a maximum of twenty learners allowing for a more personalized learning environment where educators can also cater for the needs of individuals.

We follow the National Curriculum and keep in line with the latest developments with regard to CAPS as set out by the GDE. However, we extend our learners beyond the CAPS requirements where possible, to further develop them academically.

Parents are encouraged to be involved in their child's education and work together with teachers towards offering the best educational and developmental standards for our learners.

Learners are involved in various school activities, assemblies and outings.  Sport and cultural activities take place during school hours.
