SAHETI School


Primary School - Academics

At SAHETI we identify ourselves as a South African school, having our learning/curriculum rooted in CAPS. We consciously strive towards implementing and maintaining global standards and aim to deliver powerful knowledge that promotes intentional, skilful thinking and reasoning.

In the Primary school, we do not limit our teaching to the use of prescribed text books. Instead, we use the pedagogically sound eclectic approach where a variety of sources are used in the preparation of our lessons and worksheets. Our teaching is collaborative and contextual.

To quote Clement and Lockhead: At SAHETI, “ We aim to teach our pupils how to think, instead of teaching them what to think”
