Academics

Foundation Phase Academics

The Foundation Phase consists of Grade 1, 2 and 3.  We aim to give each child personal attention with low pupil-teacher ratios.  Every class in Grade 1 and 2 has a Teacher-In-Training with them throughout the school day.  These are young ladies who are studying towards their Bachelor of Education Degrees.

Our goal is to develop each child holistically and to instill a love for school and learning.  This is done in a supportive, caring, family environment where each child is nurtured and valued.

Every classroom is equipped with an Interactive Whiteboard using the latest technology to bring the outside world into the classroom.

2019 saw the introduction of Beebots.  These are basic robots which introduce learners to fundamental coding skills.

Every Wednesday morning, the Foundation Phase hold an assembly where learners receive special certificates for their achievements in the classroom that week.  These certificates are not just academic, but also focus on manners, diligence, kindness and determination.

Intermediate and Senior Academics

The Intermediate and Senior Phase consists of Grade 4 to 7.  A fully comprehensive academic programme is supported by enthusiastic and highly committed staff.

The CAPS curriculum develops and extends learners socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.

Learners attend Media Science, Physical Education, Performing Arts and Computer lessons which are taught by Specialists in these fields.

Grade 4 to 7 learners embark on various outings and tours.  Many of these tours are “sleepover” tours where skills of team work and leadership are encouraged.

At the end of every term, a Merit assembly is held in order to acknowledge those children who have excelled in academics.  A Star Awards assembly is also held termly to acknowledge learners for manners, diligence, kindness and determination.
