Our Vision

December 19, 2013 0 Comments

We have a vision of The Grove Primary School as South Africa’s laboratory of public primary school excellence – a dynamic learning environment striving to achieve educational best practice and committed both to the whole educational need of each individual child at the school as well as to sharing its practices and knowledge with other schools.

Grove Primary in 2020 is:

  • A teaching school known nationally (and internationally) for the quality of its teaching, its teacher development innovations and its internship programme as well as its commitment to sharing its experience and knowledge.
  • A learning school always pushing the frontiers of what is possible and experimenting and innovating to achieve extraordinary results from its limited resources.
  • An inclusive and diverse school drawing pupils from the range of religious, racial, class and cultural backgrounds that make up our city and country.
  • A caring school that encourages its children to care for people and gives practical expression to this through a range of activities supporting the poor, the aged and the sick.
  • A green school that recycles its waste, minimises its environmental impact footprint and engenders values of sustainability.
  • A financially secure school that has built up a large trust fund and proactively secures project-based funding from various sources through being an exceptional model.   The Grove is able to fund scholarships and bursaries for deserving students from poor backgrounds as well as finance the technology and facility upgrades required to maintain excellence.
  • A technologically savvy school at the frontline of applying the new digital and social networking technologies to education in a sustainable affordable manner.
  • A networked school highly connected to other schools in the city, the country and internationally through partnerships.
  • An activist school committed to advocacy work with other schools and stakeholders for excellent education for all in South Africa.

Striving for excellence in an integrated, nurturing, dynamic environment.
