Admissions and Fees

Category : Welcome



Sitting amongst the top 10 countries in the world in terms of cultural and ethnic diversity, at the tip of one of the most linguistically diverse continents,[1] South Africa has one of the most sought after resources in terms of developing the skills our children require in order to thrive in the 21st Century:

‘Diverse groups do best at complex problems and innovation when the facts aren’t clear: each individual’s perspective allows him or her to tackle challenges differently, and, when stuck, rely on others’ differing points of views to progress’

World Economic Forum (2018). [Online] The path to a shared future is built on diversity and inclusion. Available from Why Diversity is More Important than Talent [Accessed August 2019].

Fee Structure

To realise our vision of an equality and integration, we’re looking for families who are prepared to partner with us – as we seek, celebrate, and embrace diversity – and kickstart an education revolution where we all learn from one another and no one is left unchanged (Spring Institute, 2016).

Soul Action is committed to ensuring diverse and quality education is accessible across South Africa’s current socio-economic divides. As an independent fee-paying school, that calculates fees on a sliding scale, Soul Action is in a position to offer a limited number of bursaries to families who can satisfactory prove their household income.

The Curriculum

Category : Welcome



Embracing a CAPS, Child-led, Inquiry-based, and Reggio Inspired approach

.

As creative and curious individuals, with multiple capabilities and intelligences, every child at our school is an active participant in their own learning. Our staff’s knowledge, ability to identify, and understanding of how to apply the South African National Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS), combined with a child-led, inquiry-based, and Reggio Inspired approach to learning, means we’re able to teach from a curriculum rather than to it.

”We teachers must see ourselves as researchers, able to think, and produce a true curriculum, a curriculum produced from all of the children”

Malaguzzi (1993 p.4).
