Academics

  • ACADEMICS

    We are very proud of the quality education offered at our school. We are very fortunate to have enthusiastic, hardworking educators who are prepared to give their very best to make winners of our children. The role of the parent/guardian in the development – and learning process is of the utmost importance. Unfortunately you as parent cannot just rely on the 5/6 hours that your child spends at school. You will see the difference if you daily spend time on consolidation and seeing to it that homework is done. Without your co-operation our task to help our learners to reach their full potential becomes very difficult and in some instances even impossible. Some of our learners need more support that others due to language barriers and academic challenges. Our school presents intensive intervention programs (see intervention no. 13) to our learners, but we require the understanding, co-operation and support of the parents. Become involved with your child’s individual development plan and stay up to date with your child’s progress. Encourage your child/ren regularly to do their duty conscientiously, show interest and support their academic progress. Don’t just accept that your child does not receive homework. If that is the case, you have to enquire immediately. Thank you to all our parents who support our educators to ensure success.

It is with pride that we can inform you that our intervention systems and the results that we receive using them, are highly acclaimed in the education circle.  The unique needs of our learners forced us to institute several support systems.  With the permission and approval of our Governing body, assistance from outside institutions and individual people, Bellville Primary can now announce with pride that we received  the status of a Full Service school in 2016.

    SUPPORT OF OUR PARENTS

    Thank you to all our parents who support the educators to ensure success. Without your co-operation our task to help our learners to reach their full potential becomes very difficult. Some of our learners need more support than others. The support of these learners’ parents is crucial. It is imperative for these parents to assist their children on a daily basis to consolidate the work that was taught in class. We call on all our parents to encourage their children to work conscientiously throughout the year. Spend time with them to discuss what they do and learn at school. Show interest in their progress and support them when necessary. Do not accept it if your child never has homework to do. Contact the school if this is the case.

    BELLVILLE PRIMARY BECOMES A THINKING SCHOOL:

    Our school was very fortunate to be chosen to implement this project which is funded by Capespan.  The aim of this project is to teach our learners to think at eight different cognitive levels by using eight different thinking maps.  Parents who show interest in their children’s academics, have most probably heard about or seen these maps.  The staff attended a workshop which was presented by Dr L. Benjamin and Mr S. Jacobs of Thinking SchoolsSouth Africa in the third term.  They are very enthusiastic about the project and believe that it will definitely have a positive effect on our learners’ achievement in future.
