Berea Primary School
Where the journey begins...
100 Years of Excellence in Education
The Foundation Phase is a highly specialized and fundamental phase as it is where the learner’s journey of lifelong learning begins. Our Foundation Phase boasts 12 dedicated teachers as well as isiZulu, Afrikaans, Music and Media specialists, who share a common passion – the well-being of each and every child in their care and their goal is to help the learners develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually by building on their previous knowledge and providing them with the skills necessary to reach their full potential.
The Foundation Phase currently consists of 3 classes in each Grade from Grade R to Grade 3. The beautifully decorated and air-conditioned classrooms provide an ideal climate for the learners and it enhances the teaching and learning process.
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. The reading material and structured reading programme is constantly being updated.
In Grade R we combine the enjoyment of free play with the excitement of learning. Our fantasy, outdoor and creative areas add to the learning of Mathematics, English Home Language and Lifeskills. Our Grade R programme includes early development of sporting and swimming skills through fun activities.
Building The Future
Great importance is placed in nurturing our future leaders and values, respect and empathy is instilled and upheld at all times.
