OUTINGS AND EVENTS

An annual fee must please be paid in cash to the office for all outings and events for each child at the beginning of the year.Our programme carefully considers all aspects of a child’s development: emotional, social, physical, and cognitive.  We believe that children can best acquire a rich body of knowledge and the skills needed for future learning through a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and that builds upon itself year by year.  We believe that our curriculum will inspire a love of learning, build self-confidence, and foster in our students the ability and desire to contribute to their community.

SECURITY

On enrolment, you will be given a security code to grant you access to the property. Please keep this code confidential, and under no circumstances allow your child to know what the code is. Please escort your child into the property and hand him/her over to the teacher on duty. Do not allow your child to enter the premises unaccompanied. We have a security guard on duty during school hours.

OAK HILL ACADEMY CURRICULUM

The curriculum at Oak Hill Academy is based on the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS) as designed by the Department of Education. The teachers work hard to develop lessons that are relevant and exciting for our learners.

Our teachers use whiteboards for teaching and learning. We organize educational presentations at the school and at educational venues. Our aim is to keep our learners informed of current events.

The CAPS curriculum is extensive and covers a range of subjects. Our Foundation Phase (Grade R-3) learners study three languages; English – as a Home Language (HL), Zulu and Afrikaans – as their First Additional Language (FAL).

Grade R school readiness tests are done in June every year.

As from Grade 4, our learners will be learning Afrikaans as their FAL (First Additional Language).

In the Intermediate Phase (Grade 4-6), our learners will study English, Afrikaans, Mathematics, Natural Sciences & Technology, Social Science (History & Geography) and Life Skills.

Our Grade 7 learners will study English, Afrikaans, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Science (History & Geography), Economic Management Science, Art & Culture, Technology and Life Orientation.

The CAPS structured Foundation Phase and Intersen Phase Education & Development Program is presented during school terms. Our teacher pupil ratio is small. This makes it easy for our teachers to give your child one-on-one attention when needed.

ACADEMIC CONCERNS

We have an Educational Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapist and Occupational Therapist who would be able to assist you and your child with any school related problems.

FOUNDATION PHASE HOMEWORK PROGRAM

 

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Please read this note for details about our Foundation Phase Homework Program.

 

We will provide each child with a homework package. This will change from week to week. This will come home every Monday with an outline of the homework for that week.The pupil will be given an entire week to complete it, which allows flexibility in your hectic evening schedules. The homework package must be returned to school daily, but will be collected and corrected on aFriday.

 

Some of the work is to be done right on the sheets, in the homework package, and some other work is to be done in books, or on the sheets provided.

 

 

Please return all homework reading books, workbooks and communication books in your child’s book bagdaily. The book pack will protect the books from spills, and wear and tear. Please note that there is a charge of R90 per book that gets damaged. Your child will unfortunately not be able to receive another reader until the damaged one has been paid for.

 

 

Please work with your child to make sure that their work is neat, spelled correctly, and is complete. If you find that you are doing lots of editing or if your child needed lots of assistance, please write a quick note by the work. This will assist the teacher in programming for your child.

 

If your child has fallen behind on an activity from the classroom or was away, we may ask them to catch up during break or we may send the work home, so that they may catch up. We will write a note in the communication book in these instances.

 

 

Our policy is that there should be about thirty minutes of homework each day. This doesn’t include reading. If you find that it is taking your child a great deal longer than this, could you please inform your child’s teacher, and we will work together to make it more manageable.

 

 

Please remember to sign your child’s homework and Reading log every day.

 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at the school or by email.

 

 

Thank you for your support! Here’s to HOMEWORK!

 

 

Kind Regards,

 

 

Debbie Brandsma
Principal
