Grade R - 7 Resources


Primary school is an important chapter in a child’s education. Education is an important factor both in the day-to-day development of a child and in contributing to the personal, social, cultural and economic fulfilment of the future adult. At primary school, the quality of teaching affects both children’s social behaviour and intellectual development. Primary school learning is designed to nurture the child in all dimensions of his or her life from spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical.
