Primary School

FOUNDATION PHASE: GRADE 1 TO 3

FOUNDATION PHASE: Grade 1 to 3

In the foundation phase we focus on teaching the foundational skills, concepts and knowledge that are required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where the learners enjoy school and where they acquire a love for learning that will sustain 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 emphasis on individual achievement. We create opportunities for personal growth in independence and responsibility so that the learners can accept the challenge of being personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.

The three main learning areas are:

  • Literacy – English, Afrikaans
  • Numeracy – mathematical and number concepts
  • Life skills – skills from a variety of learning areas
