Here at Koos Sadie Primary School we are extremely fortunate to be in a school system that supports music education. This privilege inspires the learners to participate with great eagerness in the music class.
The tempo in the music class is always presto in order not to miss a beat to become an octave above the rest. Our brain keeps marching forward to read notes, symbols and terminologies, guiding us to create beautiful melodies on our instruments.
We also learn to play together harmoniously as an ensemble group, paying attention to proper musician etiquette and discipline. But most of all we learn how to practice and persevere. This boosts our self – esteem and is the reason why we love to show off our musical skills by regularly show casing our talents performing on stage at our assemblies as well as accepting numerous invitations to perform all over the Cape Peninsula.
We cultivate our social skills through participating in various eisteddfods. Here we often achieve of the highest given marks often resulting in being category prize winners as well as guest performers at various prestige concerts.
Music at Koos Sadie Primary is all about learning, caring and sharing in order to connect with others in giving enjoyable experiences.
Our School Library and Media centre is a quiet and tranquil environment where students and staff have access to a variety of resources. We provide a flexible space with a wide and inclusive range of books to support learning and teaching throughout the school. Each class visits the Library on a weekly basis to listen to and read stories from books in the Library, and also to do various academic tasks. Learners are also encouraged to borrow books from the Library during each session to develop their love for reading.
With technology moving faster and faster, and becoming more and more important, computer literacy is essential in all walks of life. Therefore, we strive to equip all our learners with the necessary knowledge to become computer literate. The computer literacy classes are taught to all learners from grade 1 to grade 7. During these classes, skills and knowledge are obtained, using the Computers for Kids Curriculum which is aligned with the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS).
Our Computer room is equipped with 20 work stations, each with internet access and up to date software. Senior learners are assessed once a term on skills obtained.
