PARENTS CAN EXPECT THE FOLLOWING:

All parents receive a weekly agenda to enable you to continue discussions at home with your children.
In this way, you always know what your children are doing in their classes. All pupils receive four progress
reports during the year, at the end of each term. Parents are encouraged to attend "work in progress"
mornings to view children's work in classes, look at their workbooks and chat to the class teacher.
The Pre-School/Grade R pupils also complete a school readiness assessment.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST:

If required, our Occupational Therapist will assist children with assessments and weekly sessions at our school.

EXTRAMURAL ACTIVITIES:

Monkeynastix
Swimming lessons
Karate
Beaux-Arts
Speech & Drama
Dancing lessons
All of these take place at our school.

MEALS:

All children (including after school care pupils) enjoy nutritious meals everyday and pudding 3 times a week (day care pupils only).
Later in the day, we serve a selection of whole wheat bread sandwiches, fruit & juice or rooibos tea in winter

AFTER SCHOOL CARE:

We are able to offer after school care from the Wynberg Junior Schools because we are situated directly behind the Schools, just outside the gate leading from their sport fields. Because of our location, children can be collected by our staff, given lunch and returned to school for extra mural activities and collected afterwards. Tasty, nutritious meals are served to all pupils even after extra murals as well as a selection of whole wheat bread sandwiches, fruit & juice or rooibos tea in winter. Homework is supervised and signed.
Full time after care pupils enjoy the benefits of holiday care without any extra cost. They then become full day pupils and can arrive any time from 07h00.
