Our aim for Afrikaans is to supply each and every child with sufficient vocabulary to express themselves clearly and effectively within writing and speaking. We teach vocabulary, language structures and skills such as critical thinking, interpretation and problem solving through the “whole-brain” approach where different thinking styles are addressed and optimum learning therefore takes place. Our reading programme consists of exciting readers for each grade. Learners are also encouraged to take Afrikaans books out to read at home so as to improve their comprehension and interpretation skills. We encourage the learners to have a positive attitude towards Afrikaans as a modern and exceptionally expressive language.
