The learning areas in the Intermediate phase have been reduced to six subjects. The result is that in Grade 4 – 6 Technology will be combined with Natural Sciences; Arts and Culture will be combined with Life Skills and Economic and Management Sciences will be taught only from Grade 7.
When walking through the school grounds, over weekends or perhaps during school holidays, one realises that a school is nothing more than mere bricks and mortar and means very little without its pupils. It is the children’s faces and laughter that fill a home or a school with life.
The foundation of our school rests on four pillars – Guiding values; Academic Programs; Sport activities and Cultural activities. These pillars must be equally strong in a school, only then, will a school thrive.
