About Illovo Glen Private Primary School

Illovo Glen Private Primary School is a private Christian school for the community to help uplift education and give children an opportunity to grow and develop holistically.

VISION

At Illovo Glen Private Primary School, we aim to cultivate an exploratory and collaborative learning environment that seeks to nurture emotionally connected, cognitively engaged, adventurously creative and physically enthusiastic children that have a vibrant passion for learning.

MISSION

We believe that every child has a future purpose, unlocked through a personal, guided pursuit of intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical discovery, which will achieve authentic leadership capable of transforming family, community and economies alike.

We seek to redesign industrial learning methodologies through an adaptive and modern, learning environment that allows for engagement, inquiry, innovation and collaboration.

Timetables are structured with space that allows for reflection, introspection and activities that engage multiple senses that enrich the learning environment.

WHO WE ARE

Illovo Glen Private Primary School is a private Christian school for the community to help uplift education and give children an opportunity to grow and develop holistically. We offer a Christian Based Ethos where family and community values are of vital importance. Children are developed academically, emotionally, spiritually and physically.

Our children are encouraged to learn at their best and we teach toward learning for understanding. It is vital that children have critical thinking and problem solving skills and can apply these in life. The staff at Illovo Glen Private Primary School aim to create an environment where children can be themselves, feel secure, are nurtured and are taught to be responsible, caring and self-motivated individuals.

At Illovo Glen Private Primary School, we have 6 core values that guide us in every aspect of school life.

HISTORY

In 2010 Animal Farm Pre School opened our doors to the community with a passion for education and seeing little lives changed. The Pre School has grown from strength to strength. It was started with just 9 children, and now we have over 95 children.

We have seen amazing growth in both the children and staff on our property.

Animal Farm Pre School is making a significant impact in our community, offering education at a very high standard in a secure, happy and safe environment where children are encouraged to explore the world around them through outdoor play and fun. Our little lives are so happy here that we saw a need to keep growing and start a Primary School.

In 2019, a small team, with a passion and drive to see a Christian Private School opened in Illovo Glen area, started preparations and planning to see this dream become a reality and in 2020 the first Grade 1 class will be launched through Illovo Glen Private Primary School. Each year thereafter, we will offer a new grade until we reach grade 7.

Illovo Glen Private Primary School will operate on the same premises as Animal Farm Pre School 2 for our first year (2020) which is currently registered with the Health Department and Department of Social Development. Illovo Glen Private Primary School has applied to the Department of Education for registration and we have a letter that serves as proof of submission, which allows us to operate until our registration with the department has been finalised. Illovo Glen Private Primary School will move over to our own premises at no 31 Anna Scheepers Road Shulton Park, Illovo Glen in January 2021.

What We Do

If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.

Emotional Development

At Illovo Glen Private Primary School, we are passionate about developing children emotionally. We are intentional about equipping learners to become knowledgeable, responsible and caring adults.

There is a need for emotional intelligence and social emotional learning in schools and we have a program centred around this. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the capability of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour and manage or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one’s goals.

Emotional Intelligence is a key to both personal and professional success and having a high emotional intelligence level is crucial for our children in today’s world. They are faced with hundreds of decisions to make every day, they have to manage their emotions, handle the pressure of a fast-paced lifestyle, advances in technology, limited family time and so much more. By getting to know our emotions and being able to understand them, and those of others, we can have empathy and develop into leaders and world changers.

Curriculum

Illovo Glen Private Primary School values academics and offers education at a high standard. Our children are exposed to different learning styles (outdoor learning, structured learning, experiential learning and formal traditional methods of learning) so that they develop a sound understanding of the world around them and are able to succeed in an ever-changing and developing world.

We follow stipulated standards set out in the National Curriculum Statement documents by using the Impaq Maths, English and Life skills Curriculum. Here learners are provided with necessary learning experiences beginning with the concrete and pictorial stages, followed by the abstract stage to enable them to learn Mathematics, Life skills and English in a meaningful way.

The Impaq learning system aims to help our children thrive in a fast-changing world. It is important to provide research-based Mathematics, Life skills and English education that will equip our learners with the 21st century skills necessary for a globalized economy.

At Illovo Glen Private Primary School we believe in the importance of family. We aim to foster a sense of belonging where Godly traditions and family values can be upheld and developed in our community.

We desire to equip parents on how to invest in their children’s lives and foster healthy family relationships.
