The 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.
