Intermediate phase

Intermediate phase: Grade 4 to Grade 7

In the intermediate phase, the emphasis is still on establishing basic foundations but learners are led into more abstract thought and independent work. Application of skills and concepts is also a focus area in this phase. This phase aims to prepare learners for the senior phase in the high school. 

We embrace 21st century learning by incorporating the use of tablets, as an additional learning tool, into our classrooms. By using this innovative technology at our school, we are speaking the language our learners understand.
