FOUNDATION PHASE / GRONDSLAGFASE: GR 1 - GR 3

FOUNDATION PHASE

In the Foundation Phase we focus on teaching the foundational skills, concepts and knowledge that is required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, inviting atmosphere where the learners acquire a love for learning that will remain with them throughout their school years. We acknowledge the potential in each learner to reach their optimum ability and therefore, there is less emphasis on competitiveness and more focus on individual achievement. We create opportunities for personal growth in independence and responsibility to prepare learners to take up the challenge of being personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the Intermediate Phase. We focus on collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking.

The four main subjects are:

  • Home Language – English
  • First Additional Language – Afrikaans
  • Mathematics
  • Life Skills

We also offer the following:

  • Bible education
  • Continuous assessment in all subjects
  • A formal progress report each term

GRONDSLAGFASE

In die grondslagfase is die fokus op die leer van die grondslagvaardighede, begrippe en kennis wat noodsaaklik is vir verdere studies. Ons bied ’n dinamiese, aanloklike atmosfeer waar die leerders skool geniet en waar hulle ’n liefde vir leer ontwikkel wat hulle deur hulle skooljare sal dra. Ons erken die potensiaal in elke leerder om hulle optimale vermoë te bereik en daardeur word minder op mededingende en meer op individuele prestasie klem gelê. Ons skep geleenthede vir persoonlike groei in onafhanklikheid en verantwoordelikheid sodat die leerders in die intermediêre fase uitdagings van persoonlike verantwoordelikheid asook aanspreeklikheid vir hul aksies kan aanvaar. Fokus word geplaas op samewerking, kreatiwiteit, kommunikasie en kritiese denke.
