We aim to equip each boy with the cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills necessary for a happy and confident start to their school careers.

The Pre-Preparatory School offers a creative and stimulating learning environment which encourages development of the individual child. We aim to equip each boy with the cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills necessary for a happy and confident start to their school careers trusting that they may become accomplished, successful, lifelong learners. The boys encounter the world with awe and anticipation and a sense of reverence for knowledge. Respect for others and the environment is fostered.

The boys are guided towards a tolerance of time and a quietness in which careful consideration is encouraged.

It is an exciting space not closely connected to correctness but rather connected to thoughtfulness. Sharing of ideas and cooperation promotes a culture of understanding and appreciation where all thoughts are valued, all encounters seen as opportunities to learn.

Africa Day

Today we celebrate Africa Day. Africa Day was first celebrated on 25 May 1963 when the leaders of 32 African nations gathered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to form the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). On 25 May 2001, after 38 years, the OAU was replaced by the African Union, which celebrates its 19th anniversary this year.
