Our modern library offers a large range of appropriate reading material, research books, photocopy and laminating service.
The Rainbow Room is a literacy support programme for Foundation Phase pupils. Started in 2010, it has grown phenomenally in the past four years. It is administered by a programme coordinator and relies heavily on tutor volunteers from both the school parent body and the community. The Rainbow Room is housed in two custom-built classrooms of which the school is extremely proud.
The well stocked Resource Centre contains structured English and Afrikaans readers and Individualised Reading programmes (IRP) which enable the children to read according to their individual ability.
Children are afforded the opportunity to take these books home in order to practice and improve their reading.
Our two modern computer centres are each equipped with 35 work stations. We use a variety of up to date software including the “Evalunet”, scratch (coding), IR Learning Tools (interactive maths games) and Readers are Leaders” programmes.
Many children use these centres after school hours for research and academic extension. There is also extra Reader are Leaders available for those that require added improvement in reading in English and Afrikaans.
In conjusction with Digicape we often offer coding workshops during school holidays, please look out for these on our D6 Communicator.
Each classroom is equipped with internet access, a networked computer whilst each classroom also has a video data projector. Twenty one classrooms are also equipped with inter active SMART whiteboards.
We have included eLearning into our classrooms with the implementation of the use of IPads. We have already integrated devices into our grade 5, 6 and 7 classrooms, We have also been lucky enough to have a huge “floating Bank” of about 96 IPads, these are able to be booked out to our other grades. Some of our Apps that are being used include swift playground coding, popplet, stop motion, book creator, iMovie ect.
This equipment is extensively used by teachers and pupils.
They tuckshop which is open before school, at break times, after school until 4pm and for all major school events is housed in the amenities centre.
