From Grade 4 onwards students are required to select between Afrikaans and IsiZulu as their First Additional Language choice. Along with the academic subjects, a strong focus is placed on our Arts and Culture learning programme, as students discover their inner voice and creative self through Visual Arts, Music, Creative Dance and Drama.
