Foundation phase: Grade R to Grade 3
Grade R is the bridge from the tangible world to the world of symbols and numbers in Grade 1. Therefore, we focus on an integrated play-based programme that aims to develop the children’s phonological, literacy, mathematical, and creative problem-solving skills in a fun way. Learners also benefit from specialised offerings such as Robotics and music, which boost young learners’ creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
In Grade 1 to Grade 3 we focus on teaching the basic skills, concepts and knowledge required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where learners enjoy coming to school and where they acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years. The three main learning areas are language, mathematics and life skills that include creative arts and physical education. We also create opportunities for personal growth so that learners can become personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.
Learners further benefit from specialised developmental offerings such as Robotics and chess, and have Afrikaans as well as isiZulu as additional language options.

Our intermediate phase will be available as higher grades phase in annually. You can view our planned offering and specialised subjects on our fact sheet.
