Achievements

ACADEMIC:

The Children are making good progress academically and those who are struggling are receiving support through the school’s support system with the help of the AID class.

Annually the achievement of all learners is acknowledged at the school’s Honours evening for Grade 7’s and the Honours morning for the Foundation and Intermediate Phases. Eastgate Primary School has adopted a unique approach to this event in that all learners can receive an award. We do not just focus on the academic and sporting achievements of our learners but we also acknowledge learners who have participated actively in cultural activities. Among our awards are a Book Lover’s Award for the learner who
reads the most books, a Supernova Award for the learner who has risen above his or her “handicaps” and produced pleasing results. We also encourage a positive attitude and good interpersonal relations between learners and educators by having a Teachers Special Award allowing an educator to encourage and to recognise positive aspects in all learners and acknowledge these.



MUSIC

The School was involved in music competitions with neighboring schools and made good presentations.

SPORTS

Soccer is the main sport amongst boys. Our boys have participated very enthusiastically in the under 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 GSS soccer tournament. The teams’ results were satisfactory. Our teams have the potential to achieve better. If they continue to play in the spirit in which they play their games, they will undoubtedly be seen one day representing South Africa internationally.

Netball is one of the most popular extra mural activities at Eastgate Primary School. Mini-netball, played by girls between the ages of 7 and 9, is also catered for. Some of these girls have been engaged in the League for the first time. They have displayed a great talent. They have played against a few schools in and around our area. They have won, drawn and lost some of their games. The school intends to maintaining the girls’ enthusiasm for netball and also to continue to develop them. The school has also introduced cricket and basketball as an extra mural activity this year as we have realized that we are lacking in activities for the
boys at the school. Learners also have the opportunity to do swimming as an extra mural activity as we have hired a professional swimming coach at Rhodes Park swimming pool to teach the learners how to swim.
