PREPARATORY

Grade 1 to 7

Our Preparatory School is situated on large grounds, where the buildings are full of character, history and tradition.

We strive to provide a balanced programme aimed at enabling everyone to do well at his or her own level.  We encourage participation and development in all spheres – spiritual, academic, physical and cultural.

A wide range of activities allows children the opportunity to pursue interests and discover for themselves where their talents lie.

We encourage good manners, confidence and a concern for others.

Learners are encouraged to adhere to the religious and educational philosophy of the school.  This states that every child of any creed, race or colour will be treated equally and justly with love and respect.

Our classes are small in order to facilitate the best learning environment and to allow learners individual attention.

We have excellent facilities including a Science Laboratory, Media Centre with Audio-Visual Room, Religious Education Room, Fully-Equipped Art Room, a Music Hall with marimbas and a music centre.

We boast a well-equipped Computer Centre where all learners attend structured Computer Skills classes.  Grade 5 to 7 learners complete the “Knowledge Network” course each year and attain certificates in this regard.

We have excellent sporting facilities on our campus including tennis and netball courts and a swimming pool. We also have full access to the sporting facilities on the Senior School Campus.

We provide an After School Care Facility each afternoon.  Here the learners are given a light lunch and the opportunity to do their homework within a supervised environment.

We are aware that some learners need extra attention either emotionally or physically and therefore have a full time Educational Psychologist and an Occupational Therapist and Speech Therapist who come into Veritas College Preparatory on a weekly basis.
