St George’s

Foundation Phase

Boys and girls graduate from our happy, colourful and caring Pre-Primary across the road to continue their academic journey through the Foundation Phase (Grade 1 to 3), at the Preparatory School.

  •  They are nurtured, stretched, encouraged and given a variety of opportunities to achieve their individual potential. In addition, we offer a highly qualified learning support system for those who need it.
  • In bright and happy classrooms they continue with their reading skills and learn all the Numeracy, Literacy and Life Skills that they will need. Included in their ‘every day scholastic adventure’ are all the other learning areas- Art, Music, Drama, Xhosa, Afrikaans, Computers, Library, Phys Ed and French and German for our many foreign pupils.
  • On the sports field, Grade 1, 2 and 3 pupils have a head-start, with ‘hands-on’, professional coaching in swimming, tennis, cricket, hockey, netball, soccer, golf and judo.
  • ‘Sharing’ is very important and we enjoy many different classroom lessons, outings and events during the course of the year that include our parents and grandparents.
