2021 VIRTUAL BIG WALK – 11 SEPTEMBER 2021
The 2021 Virtual Big Walk was once again a HUGE success, all thanks to you!
If it was not for our sponsors, parents and staff, this event would most certainly not have been successful!
Thank you to all 245 participants who completed the Walk all over Jozi! We were in awe of all your amazing posters, not to mention your stunning outfits, proudly representing Alfred, Bede, Caedmon and Dunstan!
Congratulations to all the winners!
WITS SCHOOL OF EDUCATION FILMING – 1 SEPTEMBER 2021
Yesterday, our Foundation Phase classes were filmed for a project by the WITS School of Education and Teacher Choice in Action.
The video footage will be used in the Teacher Choices in Action module which forms a part of the national Teaching and Learning Development Capacity Improvement Programme (TLDCIP) which is implemented through a partnership between the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and the European Union.
It is also a nation-wide initiative that seeks to improve teacher preparation across South Africa.
The team was very impressed with how our lessons are conducted and will enable future teachers from around SA to make the most of the learning opportunities in their teaching practicals.
Well done, FP teachers and learners! We are proud of you!
2021 HERITAGE DAY CELEBRATIONS – 23 SEPTEMBER 2021
