Christopher Robin

Pre-Primary

 
In 2013 the above three schools formalised their long-standing working relationship by signing a Memorandum of Agreement or 3-School Alliance which will allow for the natural progression of children who start school at Christopher Robin Pre-Primary (Grade 000 0 Grade R/A); to move onto La Lucia Junior Primary (Grade 1 – 3) and then on to Virginia Preparatory (Grades 4 – 7). This agreement will not exclude learners from other schools wishing to gain admission at any point nor will it compromise those wishing to exit at any point. The ultimate objective of this alliance is to sustain our schools as centres of educational excellence for future generations. We are excited by the prospect and opportunity that teamwork and continuity will provide as we work towards strengthening relationships between the schools, whilst maintaining the individuality of each school.

 

Our La Lucia Campus continues to grow with the needs of the community. We presently enjoy:-

 

  • 4 classes per grade (average class size: 25 pupils)
  • In 2015 we opened The Victor Daitz Academic Support Unit which offers specially designed venues for onsite Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Remedial Therapy which is all undertaken by qualified Therapists.
  • We have three Academic Support Classes, one per grade with a maximum class size of 12 pupils.
  • A well-stocked Media Centre and Reading Room which is the hub of the school and is visited every day by every child.
  • Wifi throughout the school to accommodate the Interactive Smartboard, Computer Lab and the use of iPads as part of the academic programme.
  • Specialist Teachers in the following fields: Music, Media Centre, Computers, Afrikaans and Zulu.
  • A refurbished 25 metre Swimming Pool.
  • A Mini Astro where several different sports can be played including mini-Tennis, Hockey and Netball.
  • Extensive grounds to accommodate our co-curricular sports programme.
  • Specialist Sports coaching with The Durban North Coaching Academy: thedurbannorthcoachingacademy.co.za
  • The After School Care

About Ethos

 
Our ethos is best defined by our School Prayer and School Song.
 

School Prayer

 
God make my life a little light within the world to glow
A little flame that burns so bright wherever I may go.
 

School Song

 

Let laughter light our learning, each and every day
We spend together here, as we grow in knowledge
For our badge shows that we, are all Rising Stars
Twinkling with brightness in a sky of happiness.

Let us be the best we can, in both our work and play
Let our values always stand, in what we do and say
Let Fellowship be our guide every single day

La Lucia, La Lucia.
