Our daily programme allows for a balance between structured activities and free play, and between indoor and outdoor activities. Our teachers take their classes to the Astroturf for movement lessons where we use balls, beanbags, hoops and other equipment and give the children opportunities to develop gross motor-, balance- , eye-foot and eye-hand coordination skills.
‘Learn to Swim’ lessons take place in the first and fourth terms in the Oakhill swimming pool on the campus. Oakhill’s sports department also assists with the teaching of ball skills.
The Grade 000 and 00 classes have a specialist dance teacher once a week, while the Grade Rs have exposure to specialist dance, music, IT, Afrikaans and Xhosa teachers. They also attend Assembly with the Prep School once a week.
Extra activities are offered on the premises through private, trained individuals. These include Monkeynastix, Playball, ballet, hiphop, Kindermusiek and pottery.
