Each Grade (R-7) will have 25 learners per class. Currently we have one class per Grade, but this will increase to two classes per Grade in the future. We do not at this time foresee adding a third class of each grade to the school as we would like to keep the school at a more personal level.
At the center
Language is central to learning and consequently reading, written and oral skills are promoted within the school program, in order to develop creative and critical thinkers who can read fluently and communicate confidently both verbally and non verbally.
Children today need to be equipped to participate in an increasingly numerical world and therefore it is crucial for the learners in this phase to gain a strong foundation in basic numeracy. The teaching of Mathematics is integrated with other learning areas and the children are required to apply their numerical understanding to real life situations in order to develop sound problem solving skills.
Our Life Skills curriculum provides the context for the teaching of Literacy and Numeracy and consists of Life Orientation, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences, Arts and Culture. Regular physical activity forms a vital part of the curriculum and in the early years of Grade One and Two. An integrated day serves as an excellent introduction to the various sports’ codes, the general world and some of the rules beyond the school borders.
