Follow same times as per phase (M/Tu/Th) timetable but for the FP the day is extended until 14h15 so they can take part in Cycle Tests, Extra Murals clubs , and societies.

Extra-mural’ literally means ‘beyond the walls’.  Extra-murals are key to a balanced curriculum, healthy lifestyles and an enhanced school experience. Wednesday times have been changed to INTEGRATE a structured Extra Mural programme whereby the entire school will be involved in some cultural club or sporting activity. The integrated extra-mural programme during school time aims to revitalise the school-day and curriculum as well. The purpose of the programme is to expand learning and recreational opportunities, provide our children with holistic support and expanded opportunities.

This format limits movement from class to class. The extended times in the Foundation Phase was standardised to accommodate additional teaching time (focus on Maths and English) and to limit disruptions in that phase.
