Academics

The Primary School offers a strong academic and educational foundation by enriching and Biblically integrating the national (CAPS) curriculum. Life and Faith Studies, Arts and Culture Education (Including Class Music), Design and Technology, Physical Education, Media Studies and relevant Remedial Tuition are part of the Harvest experience. Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum (CAPS) with a clear understanding of the need to integrate Biblical Truth into all we teach and do. We consider the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values and attitudes an important part of the education process.

Information Technology

Computer classes equip learners with the necessary skills to function in today’s technological world by means of a curriculum designed to take them beyond basic computer literacy. This serves as a foundation for the work taught in the High School.


Design and Technology

Grade 4-7 learners engage in this very creative learning area, investigating, designing, making, evaluating and communicating. They are also taught to understand and apply their technological knowledge ethically and responsibly. The inter-relationship between science, technology, society and the environment is also emphasized.


Math’s Challenge, Spelling BEE & General knowledge

A Maths Challenge, Spelling BEE and General knowledge is held each year during the second term. These three events centre on enjoyable and interesting ways in which to do maths, spelling and general knowledge. Fundamental to the educational process the desire is to motivate our pupils to approach the work they do with confidence.
