Goals for 2025

Highly professional and dedicated team of educators

The primary section boasts a highly professional and dedicated team of educators. They all have many years of service and are experienced educators. Since the primary section was not affected by the redeployment process, a positive and enthusiastic atmosphere prevailed.


Candice Codrai's Vision/ Goals for 2025

Our school constantly shows how much potential we have, both staff and learners. My wish is that this potential grows exponentially and that we receive the accolades that we deserve.

I, as a teacher at our school, will continue to strive to achieve this. Every child deserves to be given every opportunity to reach or achieve their true worth. I will continue to challenge our learners so that they become productive citizens of our country and fulfill whatever dream they have big or small.

My wish is that our learners realize how important education is to their future and to strive to give of their best.
