All the Grade 7 pupils participate in a broad-based leadership programme, as Servant Leaders.
Throughout the year their leadership skills are developed through various training processes, which include their annual Grade Outdoor Education experence. They are given an opportunity to serve through Class Leadership; responsibilities for the Harvest Pantry, Absentees, Media, Front Gate and Break duties.
Further leadership opportunities are afforded them in Mini Chapel (Assembly) when they lead the worship through reading and prayer. Weekly awards are also handed out to the other pupils in the school.
Each class embarks on at least one outing per term, which may vary in nature and purpose.
Intermediate Phase learners attend development camps, which address environmental and leadership issues, and interactive social skills are fostered. While the emphasis may rest on fun, greater educational values serve as a foundation.
In the classroom
The Bible is our central reference. We seek to communicate its teachings in a way that our children may learn to live in today’s world with discernment and purpose. This training embraces an understanding of the significance of character, and of Godly values. Relationship with God and others is pivotal.
Each day begins with devotions in the class. The Primary School meets once a week for praise and worship and a short teaching. We join with the High School on Friday mornings for a whole school Assembly. Bible Education is an integral part of the curriculum with emphasis placed on the memorization of scripture verses and passages.
The Spiritual Pursuits Programme has been developed to provide opportunity and encourage children with the foundational disciplines of our faith. Enthusiastic and committed participation in the various challenges will strengthen their walk with Jesus and provide the opportunity for young people to use their spiritual gifts and talents. The challenges will encourage and create a servant heart and will encourage the reading and sharing of scripture and Christian literature. Pupils are always encouraged to share their faith and relationship with God with others. The challenges range in difficulty for the various age groups and may include:
- Reading Scripture
- Memorizing the Books of the Bible
- Sharing their testimony
- Christian Service
- Learning Memory Verses
- Read Christian Literature
- Character Study
- Christian Arts including song/ prose writing, worship dance, drama, art
