We employ a part-time sports teacher and the children enjoy physical education classes twice a week and coaching once per week in team sports.
Every child participates in these classes with the aim that they each grow their enjoyment of exercise and games, push themselves to achieve personal goals, and develop their ability to be excellent team players, as well as to both win and lose well!
Extra-mural tennis lessons are also available at an additional charge.
Music and Art
Music and art are highly valued elements of the curriculum at Grace Primary. In addition to weekly lessons which foster art and music appreciation, the children receive lessons in practical art, basic music theory and singing from specialised teachers.
Recorder, piano and guitar lessons are also available in school time at a small additional charge.
Each term there is day dedicated to a different handicraft. These have included sewing, woodwork, mosaics, and French knitting. There is sometimes a small additional fee charged for these activities when specialised practitioners and materials are used.
The children go on educational outings twice per term. We are very grateful to parents who make these outings possible by offering lifts and joining us as helpers. These outings include Boulders Beach, Kirstenbosch, a visit to the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra at the City Hall, Rosen Castle, Aquarium, Intaka Island, Science Museum, Planetarium, Isiziko Natural History Museum, Gordon’s Gym and local youth theatre.
We also have an informal link with Trinity Children’s Centre in Mitchell’s Plain and enjoy an outing to or visit from them at least once a year.
We currently offer drama, chess and Master Maths as extra-mural clubs (at no extra charge).
