Foundation Phase

The Grass Roots

The Beginnings

Where the journey begins...

The first years of school are very aptly named "The Foundation Phase" for it is in these years that the foundations are laid upon which all future learning takes place. It is imperative that these foundations are strong, or trying to build on them in later years will be that much more difficult.

The Breakdown

We have 3 Grade R classes and 3 classes of each from Grade 1 to Grade 3. We take boys from Grade R to Grade 3, but thereafter we become an all-girls school. This is because we do not have the space for the sporting and other facilities that growing boys require.

Each teacher in the Foundation Phase is assisted by a volunteer, who comes in once or twice a week to assist with listening to Reading, or to help with children who are experiencing problems with aspects of the curriculum. In summer, swimming lessons are incorporated into the curriculum and in winter this is replaced by physical education lessons.

Our Classes

We have beautiful and spacious classrooms which are air conditioned to ensure a stress free environment that is conducive to learning.

Building The Future

In an effort to building an all round citizen of tomorrow, we start with the basics from the ground up.
