The Grass Roots
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.
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.
We have beautiful and spacious classrooms which are air conditioned to ensure a stress free environment that is conducive to learning.
In an effort to building an all round citizen of tomorrow, we start with the basics from the ground up.
These are the learning areas that are offered and catered for at Berea Primary School for our Foundation Phase learners.
Our family is made up of inspired, experienced and professional educators.
These are our Foundation phase educators. A writer once said, "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires"
