St Paulus - Grade 5
Grade 5 is regarded for many reasons as the best year of primary school life! The pressure of Grade 4 (the first year in the Intersen Phase) has worn off and the work load of Grades 6 and 7 is yet to come. The work on the whole is enjoyable and FUN.
The Grade 5 staff members are: Ms Almarie Swart; Ms Beverley Passetti and Ms Patricia dos Santos. Every teacher is a class teacher, responsible for the teaching of Religious Education and Life Skills to her own class, but each teacher also has her "specialities:" Ms Beverley Passetti is responsible for all the Grade 5 Afrikaans and Natural Sciences teaching, Ms dos Santos is responsible for all the English and Social Sciences teaching, and Ms Swart is our Maths expert.
Many outings are planned for the year, including an outing to the Pretoria Zoo and/or Bird Show, a visit to current, relevant and exhibiting exhibitions, for instance the Tutankhamun Exhibition currently in South Africa, as well as a most enjoyable and educational 3-day tour which includes visits to Maropeng "Cradle of Humankind", the Elephant Sanctuary and the cheese factory or strawberry farm, as well as a day spent at the Valley of the Waves at Sun City.
