Foundation Phase

FPThe Cathcart High School's Foundation Phase starts with Mrs Sharon Brudwig teaching our tiny little Grade R's. These very precious little ones are prepared with a school readiness program allowing this generation the best possible advantage in succeeding in 'Big School'.

Our Grade 1 teachers are Mrs Rose Beal-Preston (The Head of Department for the Foundation Phase) and a learnership teacher Ms Chandre Heidtman (who matriculated at CHS in 2014). These dedicated teachers manage to teach the little Grade 1's how to read, write and do the mathematics required to proceed to grade 2.

Once the learners go through the capable hands of our grade 1 teachers, they head for our Grade 2 class. Under the guidance of Mrs Marizaan Van De Vyver and Ms Vayiswa Kondlo, the grade 2's enjoy a vaired school year with activities taking place in the classroom and sportsfield.

The last grade in our Foundation Phase is Grade 3. Mr Wandisile Mbangeni and Ms Shimety Vengasai lead the grade 3's with flourish and flare! Grooming these young children to manage and make good use of the opportunities for them in Grade 4, these two teachers provided a stable and happy environment for learners to grow.





Women's Day Foundation Phase Parenting Workshop

FP term 2

All Foundation Phase parents are invited to join in a fund day and parenting workshop run by our Social Worker, Mr Qilo on 9 August 2016. The interactive workshop will begin at 11h00 and, if the weather permits, will be held on the school rugby field. If it is cold, we will make use of the school hall.

We urge all parents to attend if they are free. We do understand that it may be difficult for boarders' parents to join us, but would love to see as many parents/guardians/caretakers as possible.
