They learnt some interesting facts about elephants and then had the opportunity to actually touch an elephant, which is a huge privelage that not many people experience. Thank you to the rangers from Glen Afric Lodge for providing this incredible experience to our learners.

It was a very insightful practical that had the whole class excited! Thank you Sir Nyasha. 🥼🧪⚛️⚡️
This week the Grade R’s have been focusing on a number of cognative and fine motor activities. They have had tons of fun working with these activities as they are engaging, colourful and fun. It is a great way for them to further their development while simultaneously having fun!

A HUGE big thank you to Jo and Wesley Klitzner, Kate Dunseith, GALC staff and AS learners for all your help and support in planning and working on the day.
The biggest gain from the day was being there to support our riders and seeing first hand how physically challenging their sport is. Well done boys!
Grade 8 and IGCSE Core learners went on a hike and sleepover on Saturday to Sunday. Thank you to Rudy, Tashe and Suzy for accompanying them, and Val for helping with transport. A very successful and fun-filled time was spent by all at Shelter Rock, Magaliesberg. All enjoyed their 8km hike via Shelter Rock to the top of the Magaliesberg.
The weather and venue contributed to a wonderful time spent in Nature.
Foundation phase learners loved Pyjama Day. Fluffy and friends also enjoyed the day at school. 😊

Learners then described how the snack looked and tasted. 🍎🍌🥝🍊
The Gr R's and RR's have been learning all about the letter "Tt" this week. This was done through a variety of fine motor activities, as well as a number of craft activities which simultaneously supports their creative development. Great fun was had by all. 😊
This past week the Gr R's and RR's focused on Fairy tales. They were introduced to a number of fairy tales, including Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack and The Beanstalk, and The Gingerbread Man.
Stories are a fantastic tool to use when teaching different concepts. The children worked through a number of activities connected to Goldilocks and the Three Bears. They worked with addition, comparing different sizes, and correctly ordering the sequence of a story.
Additionally they learnt the letter "Ss", this past week.

Wishes to congratulate both the learners and their teachers on their excellent results. In May/June 2021, these learners wrote external internationally recognised examinations as private candidates, the papers are set up and marked at the University of Cambridge. This is a true international benchmark and we could not be prouder of their achievement.

We offer an alternative learning experience that allows children to develop to their full potential.
GALC is a registered independent school (DOE EMIS No: 600105364 and 600105367) that offers full time tuition, as well as supplementary tuition for home schooled children.
Respect and responsibility are fundamental to our ethos.
Classes are small to ensure individual attention is paid to each student. Group work is encouraged to build problem solving and people skills.
Although we are not specifically a special needs facility, we do accommodate children with learning difficulties.
We have a zero-tolerance policy for bullying. Students of all ages interact and play together. Older students often guide and assist the younger ones in various activities.
Conservation of our natural heritage forms the corner stone of our educational program. Children will grow up with the opportunity of interacting with Africa’s wildlife. Primary school students spend an hour each week doing Bush Craft. During Bush Craft they learn about the animals and plants around us, tracking and survival skills, conservation and anti-poaching, and spend time interacting with the animals on the farm. All students participate in practical classes both in the science and biology lab as well as in the field.
We believe strongly that the future lies in the hands of our children and it is our responsibility to equip them with the values, skills and knowledge to embrace the challenges facing our society and environment.
