Aftercare

As a service to our parents and children, Sunningdale Primary established an aftercare programme during February of 2013. Initially beginning with just 16 children and one educator we now stand at 86 learners with four staff members.

The programme ensures that children spend their afternoons safe and doing constructive activities including supervised homework, after which enjoying monitored fun with their classmates and other children. It also affords family flexibility as in allowing parents of multiple children a single scheduled pick-up time for when their children have other after school activities, invariably ending at different times. Our programme runs from 13h00 – 18h00, from Monday to Friday. The facility operates as per the school calendar; i.e.; public holidays and school holidays the facility is closed.

Every Wednesday afternoon the children have the option to attend The Bible Club hosted by Deborah Stein of Christ Church Blaauwberg, for an hour. This lesson is very popular amongst the children.

Our aftercare is a happy and stimulating place. Children from grade R to grade 4 work and play together, developing an appreciation of co-operation, courtesy and mutual respect. Children are guided by a team of experienced, enthusiastic assistant teachers that make education fun and who take every opportunity to cultivate creativity, individuality and love for learning. Each child is given the individual encouragement and support they need to flourish.

Our Grade R class is full of sparkling characters. The cutest personalities that develop from the group range from hula-hoop queens to dancing ballerinas and active soccer stars. These young little people have a way of crawling into one’s heart, leaving their personalities stapled in securely.

“The little girl who has 12 different names (we counted the other day), ranging from Kardashian to Dora Girl – and all the sass to go with them… Then there’s my shadow… very few words, but most of them are “teacher, can I sit on your lap” or “teacher, can you hold my hand”… or the 7 musketeers! These guys do everything together. They eat together, play together, cause mischief together… they light up the class! These are some of the kids that light up my life and I will miss them next year, when they leave to the grade 1 aftercare class …”

We are further entertained by the variety of personalities in our Grade 1 class;
“Every day I am faced with a pleasant surprise or a challenge with the children in my aftercare class. They each have a unique personality. I have the outspoken and bold, the shy and observant. I have divas and dudes. They all are special and gifted in their own way, they often make me smile with the cute things they say, but as a class we have found a routine that allows us to complete our daily tasks.”

In our Grade 2 class;
“I have been privileged to work with a full spectrum of characters like the mischievous identical twins (whom I can never tell apart). I’ve had the satisfaction from the smiling faces and close bonds forged with learners.”

Grades 3 and 4 currently make up the balance;
“A few of the children are here simply getting on with their daily school routine, others are forever striving to achieve their best. The transition that many have shown and their hunger for achievement is evident not only in the results they achieve in the classroom, but also on the sports field…and then we have the characters…”
