We have adapted the National CAPS Curriculum to expose our girls to the concepts, skills, attitudes and values that are outlined in the curriculum. Girls are taught both Afrikaans and isiXhosa as a second and third language respectively.
Our Foundation Phase teachers create a warm and nurturing classroom environment to ensure all girls thrive and grow in confidence whilst being taught in small ability groups where they are extended and supported each step of the way.
Children want the same things we want – to laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted.Dr Seuss
It is within this micro teaching setting that we are able to develop much needed critical thinking skills. Heart Matters is a programme which helps our girls identify, understand and regulate their emotions – a vital skill necessary for lifelong success.
Many opportunities are given to girls to be challenged and enriched with the introduction of IT skills, Technology, an extensive Arts and Culture Programme as well as Life Orientation.
We are continuously adapting our curriculum to meet the needs of our girls and our rapidly changing world, and are committed to the continual pursuit of excellence.
Our Educational Programme consists of:
- English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa
- Life Orientation
- Arts & Culture
- IT Skills
- Thinking Skills
- Physical Education
- Heart Matters
- Design and Technology (Grade 3 only)
Children must be taught HOW to think, not WHAT to think.Margaret Mead
