Melkbosstrand Private School
At Melkbosstrand Private we take great pride in our school and every member of our school community works hard to provide high quality education, care and support for every child and every family.
The Primary Faculty caters for children in Grade 1 to Grade 7. We encourage every child at all times to have high expectations of themselves and what they can achieve. It is only through hard work that they will reach their full potential and goals. We are fortunate to have extensive playing fields, a rugby field, two tennis courts and a Junior play area.
In the Intermediate and Senior Phase every child is encouraged, motivated and guided so that they develop their natural gifts and talents while becoming confident, ambitious and independent learners who know how to make informed decisions about the choices they make in life. We believe that children must be excited while they learn through being actively engaged in a curriculum that is relevant to their everyday lives. In Grade 7 learners have area being given an opportunity to develop their Entrepreneurial skills through running their own stall.
Our behaviour system is built on a character development programme where learners are being given guidance on how to develop their six pillars: to be Christ – centred, respectful, responsible, to show integrity, to be innovative and to be brave. Learners each have a merit booklet which is enables them to earn merits throughout the year based on their attitude and effort in working towards completing the booklet. A celebration assembly is held at the end of each term to celebrate learners’ achievements.
