Academic Programme

Emphasis is placed on a disciplined approach to academic success. Steady application to study throughout the year is encouraged by the inclusion of terms marks in determining end-of-year promotion marks.

Foundation Phase (Gr RR - 3)

As a progressive school, we aim to equip each child with life skills that will produce socially and emotionally well-adjusted and resourceful human beings. Our approach to learning encourages children to develop a positive self-image through the development of sound, social, communication and concentration skills, gross and fine motor co-ordination, auditory and visual discrimination as well as problem solving skills.

An Aftercare Centre is available for children in this phase. It is operational on weekday afternoons as well as all school holidays with the exception of the December break.

Learning areas:

  • English (Home Language)
  • Mathematics
  • Afrikaans (First Additional Language)

  • Zulu (Second Additional Language) phasing in, currently (2017) up to Grade 2.

Intermediate Phase (Gr 4 - 6)

In this phase we strive to develop the learners’ emotional well-being by promoting pride in accomplishment, self-confidence and self-discipline; their social well-being by promoting respect for self and others; and their intellectual development.
