The Grade R school was launched on the 4th February after it was noted that a large number of 6 year olds had not been registered into a grade R school. Seeing that it is vitally important to have a foundation for Grade 1, a decision was made to advertise in the local paper that a new grade R school was starting. It would aimed primarily at children who live in cycles of abuse, addiction and poverty.
By the 4th February, 35 children had registered. By the 23rd February, 56 children had registered and the number grows daily.
The schools objective is to provide a safe, healthy environment for the children. At the same time the two registered teachers are teaching the CAPS curriculum. We also feed the children breakfast and lunch.
