Sandton Primary School

About Us

At Sandton Primary School, our primary aim is to encourage each pupil to be a self-confident, inquiring, tolerant, positive, well-rounded character with an independent mind. A balanced programme of rigorous academics, sport, and cultural activities enables pupils to discover and expand their own talents in a personal and diverse community so that the children embark on their adolescent and high school years confidently and knowledgeably. Courage, trust, humility, perseverance, community, and life long learning are the underpinning values of the school and provide the foundation for each pupil’s growth toward becoming a responsible adult.

Our Teaching Philosophy
 
Purpose Driven
 
We follow formal routine and structure with planned weekly themes and classroom activities, we ensure that every day holds a new activity which is stimulating, creative and educational.
 
Early Childhood Development
 
Our approach is committed to building on each individual’s strengths and includes physical, intellectual and social development.
 
Learn Through Experiences
 
The children do not simply spend their day “painting and drawing” but rather realising the world around them and all that it has to offer for a growing mind.
