Primary School (Grade R to Grade 7)
Education at Loreto Convent School is a dynamic partnership between learners, educators and parents, who work together in an atmosphere of appreciation, co-operation and mutual trust.
Our Grade R to 3 classes are Co-Ed (Girls and Boys) and from Grade 4 to 12, our classes are for girls only.
In the pre-school we lay a solid foundation with our perceptual and school readiness programme which ensures harmonious development of physical and cognitive skills, perceptual-motor coordination, auditory training and emotional stability.
A child centred classroom helps learners on their way towards a happy and successful learning experience.
GRADE 4 TO 6
In the Intermediate Phase, the skills that have been taught in the previous phase are extended. The learners work in eight learning programmes: Language (English, Afrikaans), Mathematics, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Life Orientation, Arts and Culture, Technology and Economic and Management Sciences.
In addition learners attend classes in computer literacy, Hymn singing and Media Skills. They are encouraged to take part in Art competitions, public speaking and Eisteddfods.
GRADE 1 TO 3
In the Foundation Phase, learners master the basic skills in the Literacy, Numeracy and Life Skills learning areas.
In addition, study habits necessary for academic success are established as well as the nurturing of the love of learning.
In the Senior Phase we offer the eight learning programmes prescribed by the Gauteng Department of Education.
In this phase, independence and personal responsibility for learning are emphasized in preparation for higher levels of study.
