The campus, nestled in the heart of Kommetjie, boasts state-of-the-art facilities and will soon be the first campus to have its very own skatepark!

This group is open to children from the 6-9 phase. Any child who loves singing, or who is keen to find out more about singing in a group, is welcome to join. Perfect voices aren’t necessary – this is an opportunity for children to have fun while singing with their peers. We welcome input from our members about songs that they wish to learn and we sing songs that the kids love. Each session starts with fun vocal warmups and informal voice training. Little voices can still be very soft and in order for us to perform at school, we need many children to join

Our conceptual focus is on the following principles:
We will be exploring the area in which we live as well as investigating the various community projects in and around the south peninsula. This is will be an opportunity for students to explore which areas of the community they are passionate about getting involved in
Performing arts allows students to explore their creativity and passion for the stage. Students will explore a diverse range of performance styles while building confidence, developing their vocal skills and having the opportunity to express themselves on the stage. This group is open to everyone!
We begin our Coding/Robotics with Tynker.

We make full use of the amazing environment we are surrounded by in surfing. We have some good beginner and advanced sites that we use. We need the involvement of parents that are available to help lift to the spot that we will use for the day.
To participate in beginners surfing you should identify with the following: ‘I am a complete novice or have caught waves at spots like Muizenberg and would like to advance to catching open face waves where the surfer rides along the face of the wave.’
Students need to bring their own wetsuit and board
To participate in advanced surfing you should identify with the following: ‘I am water confident, fit and am able to cope with swimming through breaking waves with or without a surfboard. I have advanced to taking off and riding along the face of the wave in at least shoulder height face waves with confidence and have learned to do basic turns.’

This group is open to any students aged 12-18. We are excited to welcome all musicians and singers to join this group. Forming a band is the long-term goal so if you can sing or play an instrument, this is the group to join! Band/vocal group is a safe space where you can improvise and learn more about making music in a group, whether you want to sing or play your instrument. At this early stage, instrumentalists will have to bring their own instruments to our practices on Wednesday afternoons. Sign up, come and meet everyone and let’s jam!
