The Intersen Phase comprises of Afrikaans and English speaking learners from Grades 4 to 7. There are currently 13 register classes. The learners in Grade 4 receive classical teaching. Grades 5 to 7 classes have specific teachers within the grade to receive specific learning area curriculum. The Revised National Curriculum is currently implemented with huge success by qualified and dedicated teachers. Teachers teaching Grades 4 to 7 form part of “clusters” that ensure that the curriculum is implemented, renewed and refined on a continual basis. It is still our aim to send the learners into the world holistically well-adapted and motivated with firm foundations. In the Intersen Phase, the focus is on corrective behaviour so that our learners are shown what is socially acceptable behaviour. All our discipline is based on the Code of Conductand is consequently implemented. Learners in this phase are also stimulated by their weekly visits to the computer centre where they follow computer enhancing skills. They also have the opportunity to research inormation for their projects. Physical development is addressed by the weekly physical education classes that learners attend. These classes are conducted by a qualified person and forms an integral part of the Life-orientation curriculum. The gross motor development adds to the holistic development of the learner.
