The Middle School Programme
The Middle School programme is both challenging and varied as we introduce a wide range of studies and encourage students to discover and develop new talents and skills.
The Home Teacher
Throughout the Junior years of schooling, the class teacher is the focal point for the student. As students enter the Middle years or the 'beginning of secondary school', they are often faced with changes that may create stressful situations – new teachers, different classes, moving to different rooms and subject equipment to organize. The Homeroom teacher thus becomes a good listener, an encourager and a character role model, as well as the main link in communication between home and school.
It is vital that students at this stage of their maturity have structured guidelines and ‘boundaries’ throughout their adolescent years. Encouragement of co-operation, concern for others, individual effort and acceptance of responsibility are integral to the Middle School experience making for a smoother experience than traditional Primary to Secondary school transitions.
In today’s society we recognize how important it is for our students to develop a real understanding of right from wrong, based on the teachings of the Scriptures. In the ways our teachers interact with students, families and their colleagues, they strive to model the Christian values of honesty, integrity, tolerance, respect, commitment and genuine concern for the needs of others.
