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.

    INTERVENTION

    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 NPO’s, Ligstad, volunteers, assistants and individual people, Bellville Primary can announce with pride that we are a full-fledged Full Service school.

    Mrs A. Bezuidenhout presents free lessons in English for our parents who have not yet mastered the language. We believe that this service will help us and our parents to be able to communicate more easily for the benefit of our learners. You will receive a letter in this regard early in the year.

    Mrs Carmen Bailey (psychologist) offers her services to our school at a very affordable price. This includes evaluations (testing), parental guidance and intervention strategies.

    Goldilocks and The Bear (NPO) tests our learners for health – and learning barriers and is willing to render free support.

    We believe that every learner has the right to reach his/her full potential.

    Elke klaskamer is met ‘n rekenaar en projektor toegerus. Die internet word gebruik om die lesse te ondersteun en dra by tot kwaliteit van onderrig.

    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.
