Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve – Napoleon Hill
Primary School is a big deal for everyone
The curriculum framework incorporates essential elements such as: Time Management, Leadership, Assessments, Attitudes, and Actions within the learning domains of Cognitive, Affective and Psychomotor. These elements allow the children to make connections with life outside the classroom – What we call the Real World.
Primary school is such a fun time in the life of a child. They suddenly realise, hey I am not a ‘child’ and they begin to step into the shoes of responsibility due to their new perception of maturity. Our primary school is a fun and safe space, where each child is supported as they learn, grow into themselves and form friendships that they just may take with them forever.”
More about our Primary Program
In all our classes, year 1 to year 6, we assure you that we will be supportive of the goals of your family. We will always put the children first as this is how we can ensure that we create experiences for each child that they can carry beyond school.
Learning is collaborative and individualised, ensuring the right balance for healthy competition. Secondary school is not our end goal, life is.
Our Primary school children wear uniforms, which they are very happy about, and their school day runs from 7:30am till 2.00pm.”
Primary school education begins at age 5 and continues until age 11, comprising key stages one and two. Some primary schools are split up into Infant and Junior levels. These are usually separate schools on the same site. The infant age range (Key Stage 1) is from age 5 to 7. The Junior age range (Key Stage 2) is from age 7 to 11.
The year groups at primary School level are:
Year 1 (age 5 – 6)

A BusyMinds Education is more than the certificate.
Our Primary program is like no other and should be experienced by every child. It is fun yes intense and a largely individualized method of learning characterized by the children learning from the adults, the environment and most importantly they learn from themselves.
Every child is different and this is evident in the way we create our learning pathways and the way we structure the classroom. It is important to us that every child gets the support they need to thrive and prosper in Primary School. We are more than a school.
Our Learning Pillars
Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
The ability to think is the single most important tool that can transform a blank mind to a colourful one filled with transformative imaginations.
It has been said that the illiterate of the 21st century, is the one who is unable to use digital tools. DL for us is about functionality usage of digital tools.
The reason why we have two hands is because, it is easier to lift and hold onto things, using two hands. We incorporate the concept of collaboration into our modules.
We remember things that leave an impression on us. This statement is the basis of our experiential learning model and each child experiences learning in a manner that facilitates recall.
When we as people understand that it is not only about us, we begin to create an environment where everyone can thrive and be. Empathy not just from the teachers but the students is one of our pillars.
Self Esteem and Confidence
Regardless of your what you can do, if you never believe in yourself, you will always assume no one else does. This is why self esteem and confidence is one of the pillars of our learning.
