INTERMEDIATE PHASE (GRADES 4 TO 7)


 

CURRO HILLCREST CHRISTIAN ACADEMY: INTERMEDIATE PHASE

 Executive Head: Melville Temlett

 Head of Intermediate Phase: Keith Hawyes

We believe that children are multi-faceted and unique in their gifts and their make-up.  Our goal as educators is to provide a child-centred, safe and disciplined environment in which each individual learner can grow to become a well-rounded, happy and confident young person. There are no 'average learners'.  Each learner is celebrated for their own uniqueness.

We have four pillars and one foundation. Our pillars are our academics, sport, cultural and outdoor programmes and our foundation is the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our academic programme follows the government CAPS curriculum.  We also have our own curriculum developers who are experts in their respective fields and 'inject' cutting-edge topics and techniques into the curriculum.

Each classroom has its own interactive whiteboard and, currently in 2015, every learner is working on their own tablet. 

The subjects taught are:  

  • English
  • Afrikaans
  • Zulu
  • Mathematics
  • Natural Sciences and Technology (Robotics and programming are taught in the technology sections)
  • Human Social Sciences (Geography and History)
  • Information Technology
  • Art
  • Music
  • Drama
  • Physical Education

 Fill a school with great and passionate educators... and you will DEVELOP GREATNESS!
