Dominican Grimley School's Annual Sports Day and Gala

 

Fun was had by all at our Annual High School and Villa Sports Day and Gala on the 27th March.

Obstacle courses, swimming races and fun activities were the order of the day.

 

Well done to Erica House who won overall!

 

The school is distinctive in that:

  • tuition is provided in the oral-aural method rather than in the manual (sign) system of communication. The children are given the opportunity to learn to communicate in English, which will enable them to succeed in both tertiary education and in the work place one day.

  • the oral-aural system of communication facilitates easier transition to and from mainstream schools.

  • it is a modern and progressive, co-educational school providing an excellent standard of education from Grade R to Grade 12 on one campus in acoustically orientated buildings with high illumination levels.
  • it has small classes with a maximum of 10 children in a class, allowing for individual attention and offers Speech Therapy, free of charge to all Primary School learners.

  • it is situated in the beautiful valley of Hout Bay near Cape Town.

  • it is proud of its excellent facilities, which are both modern and comprehensive, including sports facilities, art rooms, a gym and a concert hall, computer rooms and well-stocked libraries.

  • it is fortunate to have a dedicated and highly qualified staff that offers an outstanding quality of education following the N.C.S. (National Curriculum Statement).

  • it offers hostel facilities where much effort has been put into creating a feeling of home for weekly boarders.

  • it is governed by a School Governing Body, which includes members elected by the parent body.

  • it is closely connected with both the Tygerberg Hospital Cochlear Unit and Carel Du Toit School and Parent Centre.

  • it arranges transport to and from central Cape Town and Wynberg.
