School Class Structure

Facilitator: Kim Matter

Three turning four during the current year.
Teacher: Nicky Sankey
This is our Senior class combining Grade RR and R students.
Teachers: Kim Matter and Emma Van der Westhuizen
All children are required by the Department of Education to start Grade 1 in the year during which they turn seven.
Should a prospective Grade R learner not be ready for Grade 1, the Grade R year can be repeated only with permission from the Western Cape Education Department and after a comprehensive psychological school readiness assessment has been completed.
We endeavour to pinpoint any areas of concern during the years before Grade R so that steps can be taken early to remedy any impediments to learning that the child may face. If an area of concern is picked up, the school will refer the pupil to an independent professional for assessment in that area, and we will work in conjunction with them and the parents to facilitate improvement.
