Grade R


Grade R is a joyful year – full of adventures, growth and development in all areas.  We encourage our girls to be independent, emotionally smart and fully integrated into big school.

The Grade R team adopts a holistic, play-based approach to teaching and learning, ensuring we all have fun.  Everyone is acknowledged and celebrated for being unique – we promote a culture of inclusivity.

The Grade R curriculum embraces Jolly Phonics, NumberSense and includes a rich extension of learning by including library, isiXhosa, music, swimming and gym.  The extramural programme offers ballet, modern dancing, Madrassa, drama, pottery, gymnastics, judo, tennis, Curious Cubs and Heart Matters.

All activities are incorporated into the programme to enhance sensory development and to stimulate enquiring minds.

Our Grade R girls enjoy a happy year – they are nurtured, loved and fully-prepared for the challenges that face them in the years to come.
