2016 has again been an exceptionally successful year for the school. Firstly, our student numbers have grown substantially during the year. This only happens if the vast majority of parents are satisfied with our school. They are satisfied because their children are happy.
The school management believes that “the secret to success” comes from the quality of the teaching staff. We originally started the process by appointing Leopold. This was followed in 2016 with two new staff members, i.e. Tersia and Stefan. Stephanie was another welcome addition during the year. She has been promoted to Academic co-ordinator. Carla has been promoted to Admin Co-ordinator. They have had an amazing positive impact on the school.
This process of upgrading the staff, including through better training, will be continued in 2017. In january 2017 Janine and Mandy will join us. Mandy is a well qualified Design graduate and we are looking forward to many new ideas and innovations. Janine is specialised in the teaching of grades 7 to 9.
The school is also continually trying to define our school philosophy but the core of our philosophy will always be that the student must firstly, be a happy child. A happy child learns best. We are also continuously following the latest research on schooling to see how we can improve the school.
Lastly, in keeping with the effort to make the school “new” again, we are painting the front of the school to look a bit different in 2017.
