Curriculum

Kingfisher Private School follows the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS), but is committed to extending and enriching the content as to develop critical thinking skills and other competencies required for our learners to live in a rapidly changing world.

Assessment

A policy of formal and continuous assessment is followed with all tasks and assignments assessed. Tests, examinations and assignments are structured to include all levels of thinking according to Bloom’s taxonomy.

A report is sent home each term. This report includes assessment gradings for every subject, a list of the extra-mural activities, in which the learner participated, the learner’s latest merit and demerit totals, and a general comment made by the register educator.

Sport

Various sport activities are offered at Kingfisher Private School, and this changes seasonally. Swimming is compulsory, and special attention is given to learners who cannot swim, with beginners lessons.  See the extra-mural timetable every term for the sport offered in that term.

Extra-mural activities

Learners are offered educational trips throughout the college phase. These range from trips to local organisations for charity purposes, to national journeys where team building is the main aim. The learners also regularly organise fundraising or educational events.

The learners regularly organise events, such as the Valentines Ball and  Spirit Week.  Teaching them leadership and organising skills.

The college has a strong Chess club which performs well in tournaments.  The Wildlife Club is supported enthusiastically and the learners have the opportunity to go to the Kruger National Park about twice a year.

Community involvement

At Kingfisher Private School we teach the children about giving back to your community. Community involvement is important and each grade has to participate in a community project. Each grade chooses a worthy cause. These projects varies from donating books collected by the learners to a disadvantaged school; spending time at a nursery school & playing with the children; or collecting and donating equipment needed for a specific project like a vegetable garden at a rural school.
