School Program

What we do
We strive for a positive change in South Africa and believe that it needs to start with the education of our children, the future adults of our country. We have 6 pre-school classes, each of them tutoring 12-18 learners. We have a total of 80 learners between 2-5 years. Our Grade R center has 34 learners. The Primary school, currently Grade 1-7, has a total amount of 211 learners. Our Senior Phase (Grade 8-9) has 22 learners. Our future plans include adding an additional grade each year. It is critical to limit the number of children per class in order to ensure that they receive optimal attention and stimulation.

The school program focuses on developing the children in all areas and aspects of their lives. Their lingual, visual and motor skills as well as the development of perception are addressed on a daily basis. In addition to the school program, the primary school children also take part in following activities:

Ballet classes by Rhythm of Hope Dance
Computer classes
Sport activities such as netball, soccer, cross country and athletics resume in the afternoons.

The children are provided with breakfast, snacks and refreshments during morning-tea and lunch. Every child’s birthday is celebrated with a specially baked birthday cake as a token of his/her life being celebrated. Social workers are involved in the school program and available to take care of children’s specific needs. They also run a special program for the parents. Volunteers also assist with Play- and Speech therapy.
