The Foundation Phase teaches 4 subjects (Home Language, Mathematics and Life Skills). Differentiated tuition takes place in every Foundation Phase classroom and every teacher works for what is best for each learner. Our objective is that each learner must holistically reach his potential. Formal assessment tasks are written during the last two weeks of each term.

In the Intersen the following subjects are taught: Home Language, Mathematics, Social Sciences, Life Skills, EMS, Natural Science, Technology, Arts and Culture, Additional Language.

The didactics team supports learners with learning barriers. Learner support is also complemented by the Resource Class.

Computer center: A computer center with 40 computers is used by the grade 4-7 classes. The Foundation Phase has its own computer room with 40 computers. In both these venues the Stimulus Maxima program is utilized. It provides phenomenal support to the class teacher. Each learner is monitored individually regarding his/her progress and barriers. This enables teachers to do remedial or enrichment work after each cycle.
