The Junior Preparatory Phase starts in Grade One. This is the year in which our little ones learn to read and write. Our Grade Two year consolidates these basic foundation skills and encourages ongoing, cross curricular learning. Grade Three is the last year in our phase and this is where we prepare our children for the more independent style of teaching and learning in the Senior Phase.
Our classes in Grade One and Grade Two consist of twenty two children per class and this number is increased to twenty four children per class in Grade Three.
The Junior Preparatory phase follows an integrated curriculum. A hands on approach is encouraged. The class teachers focus on Mathematics, English, Life Skills, Life Orientation and Multifaith.
The children are also exposed to various specialist subjects. These are Zulu, Afrikaans, Physical Education, Computer Education, Media, Singing and Art.
Our Grade One and Two children have an Integrated Day Sports programme in which the children are introduced to all the sports that we offer. Their day starts at 07:30 in the morning and ends at 13:30 in the afternoon.
The Grade Two and Grade Three children are also encouraged to join the choir and we offer an Orff band to the Grade Threes.
In Grade Three the children start school at 07:30 in the morning and finish at 13:30. They are encouraged to choose both sporting and cultural activities from our extensive extracurricular timetable which includes swimming, tennis, cricket, soccer, hockey, netball, softball, athletics, art, drama, choir equestrian and others.
We also offer a variety of extra cost activities.
The extracurricular programme starts at 14:00 in the afternoon.
