Vastfontein Batho Pele Christian School

​Uplifting your child through education. We raise, educate and equip the next generation of leaders that can transform South Africa.

Primary School

Foundation phase; grades 1 to 3

Our qualified teachers are all passionate about getting young learners equipped to read, write and do mathematics as well as developing their creative abilities. Our class rooms are not just between four walls therefore activities are often done outdoors to enhance the learning experience of the learners. Frequent informal and formal assessments are done to ensure problem areas are identified and addresses timeously. 

As in the case of the early childhood development centre, the primary school also has access to a multi-disciplinary team who works holistically with the learners. Our on-site social worker serves the families with any social needs, while our community development teams assist with physical needs like food, clothes and shelter, while the weekly clinic and medical doctor provide free medical care and support.

Intermediate phase - Grades 4 to 7

In this transition phase, it becomes extremely important to us to move from teacher centred class rooms to learner centred class rooms. We are embracing 21 st century learning, where the focus is on 4 C’s: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication. By allowing our learners to take responsibility for their development and involving them in participative learning, we believe we can achieve our goal of raising leaders, realising potential and realising dreams.

Moving away from traditional teaching methods towards STEAM as an education approach, we use Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. Through this approach learners are equipped to take calculated risks, participate in experiential learning, focussed on real life problem-solving, embrace collaboration and utilize creative processes. 

Subjects taught are aligned with the CAPS curriculum however it is presented in a project-based learning environment where learners are faced with real life problems and/or challenges and are required to investigate, research, design, develop and build creative solutions.

Each step in the process is recorded and evaluated while various presentations are made throughout the life-cycle. In everything we do and teach our born-again Christian teachers bring in the truth of the word of God and approach every aspect with a Biblical worldview and the love of Christ.
