Grade R

At Wynberg Boys’ Junior, we believe that children deserve the best possible start to their education. We strive to nurture, in a caring environment, the development of the whole child. It is our goal to realise the potential of every pupil entrusted to our care by fostering their intellectual and emotional growth as well as their physical skills. In particular, the development of self-esteem and confidence is considered a core objective. During their time in Grade R we try to instil in our boys a love of learning and respect for the culture and religious values of others.

Grade R started with two classes at Wynberg Boys’ Junior School in 2005 and expanded to three classes in 2008. Each class comprises 25 pupils. In addition to a qualified teacher, each class has a dedicated assistant. We have embarked on an exciting project, which has been in the pipeline for many years, namely the updating and extension of our current Grade R building. When this is completed this year, we will have four classrooms and our own library and computer hub.

All boys are required to wear the navy blue uniform, which consists of shorts in the summer and track pants in the winter. Each boy is allocated to a schoolhouse and is expected to compete in our inter-house sports days and cross-country events. During Term 4, we host a mini swimming splash gala. All boys are expected to have attained skills in swimming prior to attending Wynberg Boys’ Junior School.

The Grade R day is divided between structured activities and supervised play. We have a dedicated music teacher twice a week and our boys attend computer classes. There is also a ball skills programme, swimming lessons and a library period.

In addition to the school lessons and activities, we offer a large variety of private extra-mural options for boys who may be interested. These include Soccer, Golf, Rugby, Curious Cubs, Karate, Playball, Cricket, Tennis, Robotics and Hockey.

Grade R Times: Our doors open at 07h00 and we officially start at 08h00. Our day ends at 13h00 from Monday to Thursday and 12h30 on Fridays. There is an aftercare facility available.
