SAHETI School (Primary)


A vibrant, happy environment is what characterizes SAHETI Primary School. The focus is on innovative teaching, which constantly challenges the enquiring mind and promotes creative thinking. Every opportunity is used to make the curriculum more meaningful, through special themed projects and "Learning in Context" days. Pupils work on set topics which require practical application of mathematical and other concepts, responding with creativity and enthusiasm.   

A solid values system ensures that the development of confident individuals and a positive self-esteem is balanced by respect, tolerance and empathy for others. Thus the foundation is laid for fulfilling relationships with peers and a meaningful participation in the broader society. Outreach activities, which include regular fundraising activities and visits to institutions are embraced with the characteristic SAHETI energy.

Passionate teaching staff forms the backbone of this enriched educational experience. Pupils are supported intellectually but also emotionally through caring and trust, which promotes communication between teachers and pupils. Close parental involvement is strongly encouraged in their child's progress and personal development.



Academics

The culture of achievement at SAHETI is true to the spirit of excellence described by Homer in "The Iliad": "Always give of your best". Fostering a curiosity about the process of learning has become the cornerstone of SAHETI's success. Pupils are actively involved in the learning process, while taking responsibility for their academic growth and development. Throughout the school, commitment and a positive work ethic are highly prized qualities.

Classes at all levels are kept small, ensuring a high level of individual attention to pupils' needs. The learning environment is supported by dedicated specialist teachers who have undertaken to develop individual potential. Our aim is to prepare our pupils to make a difference and to accept the challenges of a global market.

SAHETI prepares its pupils for the internationally recognised Senior Certificate Examination of the IEB, where we consistently achieve excellent results. In addition to our unbroken 100% pass rate, the vast majority of our pupils achieve university entrance, and go on to excel in their chosen profession, both locally and internationally.

To ensure that our educators remain at the cutting edge of developments world-wide, ongoing staff development is a priority.



Sport

The emphasis in sport at SAHETI is on playing to the best of one's ability. We strive to develop our pupils holistically, using progressive methods to nurture individual potential. Expert coaching, as well as skills development is provided by full-time sport staff in a variety of sporting choices.
 

The development of the very best resources and facilities for sport is an ongoing priority. Facilities include: a ten-lane swimming pool (25m x 25m), rugby and soccer fields, tennis, netball, basketball and volleyball courts, as well as a 400m athletics track.
 

Several pupils from SAHETI are selected for provincial teams every year, and many Sahetians have also represented South Africa at international level.
