  • EXTRA MURALS | Edenglen Primary School

    Check us out on Page 14 JUNE EDITION Extra-curricular activities at Edenglen Primary are exactly that - an invaluable extension of the curriculum and the educational experience we aim to provide. While not compulsory, participation is strongly encouraged, and a majority of our pupils are involved in one or more activity. Athletics All learners are invited to take part in Athletics. Interhouse? Learners have the opportunity to excel during the athletics season Which is when? by taking part in interschool Athletics meetings. ​ Choir Choir is offered year-round to our Juniors (Grade 1 to Grade 3) and to our Seniors (Grade 4 to Grade 7). This is carried out by qualified music teachers at our school, who work to ensure that when the stage lights go on the quality of our choirs is outstanding. Both choir groups work towards competing in the annual Eisteddfod and various other events where their talents can be showcased. ​ Cross Country Interested learners take on various cross-country trails as they work towards representing their District at the end of the season which is when? This activity is offered from U9 and is limited to U13 participation. Please clarify? Do only the U13s compete formally? Cricket Mini Cricket is offered to Grade 1 and Grade 2 learners. Our aim at this level is developing critical motor skills and a basic knowledge of the game of cricket. Players get the chance to show off their skills at Mini Cricket matches, which take place on Saturday mornings at various venues during Term 1. Senior Cricket is offered to Grade 3 and Grade 4 learners. In higher grades like Grade 5-7 strategic play and improvement of skill becomes the focus and coaching becomes more technical. Cricket teams play 20-Over matches during the week against schools in and around the Edenvale area. Dance Dance is offered only to our Grade 3 group on a voluntary basis to those learners who have some ‘slick moves’ to show off for the Eisteddfod. Learners are coached throughout Term 2 in preparation for competition in Term 3. There is much fun to be had here! ​ Eisteddfod The National Eisteddfod of South Africa is the biggest cultural competition for school learners in the country. It offers various opportunities for performers in all communities to showcase and develop their talent in music, dance, theatre, and fine arts. Staged during the third term, the Eisteddfod has become a highlight for learners participating in the Arts, including English poetry, Drama, Afrikaans Poetry, Drama, Group Dancing for Grade 3, Speekkoor for Grade 4 and Grade 5; as well as Vocal Categories for Senior and Junior Choir, and Art Grade 1 – 7. Preparation and practice for these activities take place during Term 2, with various groups and individuals competing at organised Eisteddfod competitions during Term 3. ​ Hockey Grade 1 - Grade 3 learners are offered Hockey on a smaller scale than the older grades. These learners are given the opportunity to learn the basic skills and principles of the game while competing against other schools and playing their matches on a smaller field space than normal. As learners progress and improve upon their Hockey skills, field space is increased, until they are introduced to full field Hockey by the time they reach Grade 7. ​ Media Our beautiful Media and Resource Centre is stocked with the latest book titles, both fiction and non-fiction. It’s also equipped with individual work stations, which are popular with learners and teachers for accessing the Internet for research. Our very own Media Centre teacher, Mrs Dos Santos, presents courses on how to use the Media Centre effectively and how to encourage reading programmes to teachers from other schools. ​ Netball and Mini Netball During the summer season, Grade 1 -3 learners take part in Mini Netball as an introduction to the sport. Grade 4 - Grade 7 girls are then coached in advanced Netball skills. All teams compete against schools in and around the Edenvale area, giving all participants an opportunity to hone their match skills in a competitive environment. ​ Rugby Rugby is offered to Grade 4 - 7 learners on a competitive level where players get to face off against other schools in a rugby league. To ensure the safety of all learners taking part in the sport, all coaches are Boksmart Certified and World Rugby Qualified. Before they are able to join rugby in their grade 4 year, Grade 3 learners receive a crucial introduction to the basics of the sport as well as safe practice during play. ​ Soccer Soccer is a crowd-pleaser at our school, with all learners from Grade 1 - 7 joining in on the fun. There is provision for a girls team and the Sports Co-ordinator is hard at work to get this going. Grade 1 - 3 learners enjoy playing soccer on a smaller format than the older age groups. Once again this allows them to get used to the basic skill requirements of the game before it becomes competitive in the older age groups. ​ Chess For those learners who prefer to enjoy some competition indoors we have chess. Learners take part in Term 1, 2 and 3 from grades 2 - 7. ​ Speech & Drama For those learners more dramatically inclined, our Speech & Drama Club is the perfect platform for the development of that star quality and stage presence. Learners take part in Term 3 competitions at the Eisteddfod.

  • Primary school in Johannesburg | Edenglen Primary School | Edenvale

    Welcome! From the Principal’s Desk ‘Best work, best attitude, best behaviour.’ This is the motto we try to instill in our learners as we forge ahead to reach our goals. We are proud to offer such a high standard of education, whether it be in academic, cultural, or sporting spheres. Our school’s performance in competitions like the Maths Olympiad, Science Olympiad, and Science Scuffle indicate that we really do produce our ‘best work’. Teachers also continually give of their best. When it comes to preparing lessons, marking books, or contributing their time and energy to functions after hours, our staff strive to be the best that they can be. ​ Our ‘best attitude’ is instilled daily. We teach our children to greet all adults on the school premises and to show good manners at all times. ‘Best attitude’ extends to our sporting activities, where we nurture good sportsmanship and values like fair play. It is also demonstrated through self-respect and respect for others. Taking pride in oneself is paramount to self-respect, as is practicing zero tolerance for bullying and fighting. Even respect for the environment is high on our list of priorities as we encourage our learners to be actively involved in cleaning up litter and keeping our school grounds clean. ​ ‘Best behaviour’ starts from the moment that children line up in an orderly manner outside their classrooms, to the time that active learning begins inside the classrooms. Learners are routinely assigned duties that develop a sense of responsibility and independence, thus enabling them to focus and work harmoniously with others. These positive behaviors are encouraged and rewarded so that learners, particularly the older ones, become role models to the younger ones. ​ So, remember: every day is an opportunity to give your best and be your best. Your future lies in your hands. ​ Heather Broodryk Principal CLICK HERE YOUR FEEDBACK OR CONCERNS>>

  • ACADEMICS | Edenglen Primary School

    At Edenglen Primary School, we believe in the holistic education of learners. We also believe that preparing children to take on a meaningful role in society in the years to come means taking the time to assist each learner reach his or her full potential in all areas of school life. With our modern and reliable resource facilities and a wide educational infrastructure, Edenglen provides learners an idea base from which they can explore – and realise - their full potential. Academics Academics remains one of our most important priorities. We teach strictly according to the curricular policy and prescriptions of the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS Curriculum). ​ Formal assessment tasks, as captured in the CAPS curriculum, are done regularly and learners receive a formal assessment plan each term. These assessments, calculated according to the Departmental 1 to 7 -point scale, determine the final mark of each subject. ​ Meanwhile, continuous informal assessment takes place daily according to various assessment strategies in preparation for formal assessment tasks. ​ At the end of Term 2 and Term 4, learners from Grade 4 to 7 also write examinations according to a set examination time table. ​ Recognition and academic awards are given to those who are placed within the Top Five, and subject awards are also given. Learner support Assisting us to support learners experiencing learning difficulties are a number of specialist within our immediate community. We refer learners to credible speech therapists, occupational therapists, and remedial therapists. ​ We also have a speech therapist, an occupational therapist, and a remedial therapist who work on the school premises twice a week. This means therapy can be built into the learners’ school day. It also allows teachers and therapists to work more closely together, ensuring maximum benefit from the support programme. ​ Should a learner require any of the above therapies, an assessment is carried out. Based on the outcome, an appropriate intervention programme is put into place. Where possible, this is incorporated into the classroom by the teacher. There may, however, be a need for the parent or guardian to take the child for additional therapy, which would be for the cost of the parent. Above all, parental involvement is the biggest support needed.
