CAPS is used as a guide to our curriculum. We follow the Time to Read language programme, which ensures the systematic development of reading, spelling and comprehension. The Mathegenius Programme forms the basis of our mathematics curriculum and helps our children to develop a firm mathematical foundation. Our curriculum further includes Computers, Music, Physical Education (PE), Sepedi, Art and Design & Technology. All these disciplines are presented by teachers specialising in these areas. In Grade 1 every child participates in SIM sessions.
During these sessions, children are continuously exploring their 7 senses, resulting in improved sensory integration skills, which are vital for learning. It is ultimately our calling to guide children along their journey to becoming responsible and accountable individuals.
