Art Club at The Grove

Art club is a space where our children get to express themselves freely in a creative and visual way. A range of media is used to create a diverse spectrum of projects in both two and three-dimensional works. From clay to acrylic inks, charcoal to tempera paint; art is created with an emphasis in interactive learning in a safe environment.

Culture Clubs at The Grove

By way of enriching and extending the CAPS curriculum all Grade 4 – 7 learners participate in a cultural club of their choice.

This space allows teachers and learners to share their passions in a space that is more social and informal than that of the classroom.

Examples of Clubs include, among others Choir, Orchestra, General Knowledge, Gardening/Eco, Sewing, Board Games, Computers, First Aid and Bridge.

Our WESSA Eco Flag proudly flies in our reception reminding us of what we have done to achieve this as well as obtain our Platinum status. WESSA is the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa. Our commitment to the environment has seen The Grove implement a number of initiatives including:

We are one of the first Primary Schools to ban the single use plastic bag. Assisted by the Two Oceans Aquarium, we have created a plastic bag free zone.  Alternative options are available to our children.

Our active and committed Eco Club have implemented the Ecobrick-Exchange project; this reduces plastic in the environment and creates building material.

Every term we Walk-to-School.  This allows us to consider our carbon footprint; remember how important it is to exercise, be aware of our surroundings and develop spatial awareness.

Our water saving initiatives have seen the water consumption of The Grove drastically reduce. Our many decisions made in this regard include planting water friendly succulents; recycling water when we backwash our pool; rain water harvesting and a borehole installed.

Sport at The Grove

A holistic education needs to include as many sports and musical avenues as possible, particularly at a primary school level. The Grove focuses on six traditional sports codes: soccer, hockey, cricket, swimming, netball, and tennis.

All pupils have Physical Education/Games as an extension of their curriculum and every student must participate in at least one summer sport and one winter sport. The Grove teams participate in the local schools leagues throughout the year.

Highlights of the sporting calendar include galas, sports day, inter-house matches, teachers vs. children events as well as tours to Knysna for our Grade 6 and 7 boys and girls for hockey and soccer; even netball does overnight excursions.

Sporting Achievements acknowledge efforts made by children whether it be for outstanding sportsmanship; sporting excellence or sheer determination.
