The Foundation Phase follows the CAPS-curriculum as a guideline to our Saints curriculum. Our educators make use of various educational strategies and resources to enhance the delivery of knowledge, skills and values.
English (HL), Afrikaans (FAL) and Sesotho (SAL) are offered as languages with Mathematics and Life Skills. A well-structured Physical Development Programme, that is unique to Saints, has been developed during 2020 and is incorporated in our school day.
Using CAPS as our foundation, we add body to our curriculum with programmes such as: Jolly Phonics, The Oxford Reading Tree and a variety of Mathematical programmes. Life Skill themes are integrated into our curriculum.
Our educators are equipped to deliver blended teaching with three YouTube channels and a grade-2 Facebook page. These platforms were created at the start of lockdown 2020 and are successfully used to enhance the delivery of content to our boys.Music lessons are offered to individuals, starting with the recorder. The boys participate in various Eisteddfods and art festivals. Learner support is offered through remedial and intervention classes, where the need of each individual is addressed.
