The Curriculum

 

According to our mission statement, Loreto wants to give children a firm and happy life foundation and it concentrates on doing so in various ways.

From Preschool to the end of Grade 7, every learner is nurtured as an individual and is given every opportunity:

  • To grow in self-worth

  • To develop cognitive skills which make problem-solving easier

  • To acquire research skills which apply to life in general and not just in school

  • To develop physically in a healthy and fun-loving environment and

  • To work with their peers and the staff in a meaningful manner.

The education staff is caring, committed and dedicated and they keep abreast of educational developments. Well-equipped classrooms facilitate the discovery process at a level that is age-related and which helps the learners to understand new concepts and to apply them inappropriate ways.

Loreto School Queenswood follows the National Curriculum of Outcomes-based Education.  The home language is English with Afrikaans being offered as a 1st  additional language and Sepedi as a 2nd additional language.  Both additional languages are offered from Grade 3 to Grade 7.
