School Tuckshop Menu- healthy eating

“Educating the whole child, includes the heightening of awareness of healthy eating habits leading to the manifestation of living in healthy bodies.  We transformed our tuck-shop as one of our goals during 2012 to become a source of healthy eating options for the school child who spends more than 7 hours per day on our campus.  The menu and quality of product was totally reviewed, now it includes wholesome meals that provide nutritional value maintaining the energy levels of our children. Food is prepared by grilling and steaming.  Fried foods are kept at a minimum. Fizzy drinks are not sold at our tuck-shop.  Stocks of sweets and chocolates are limited to a small variety sold in the bite size options.  Guidelines used when reviewing the Menu was that provided by the heart foundation.  At Sagewood School we realise the importance of educating the child holistically.  Hence every facet of school life is carefully considered by the management team of Sagewood School.  Decisions taken always centre and focus on the well-being of our children, staff and parents.” Sagewood Management Team

Pre-Primary school registration still open for 2014

Research shows that children who attend a high quality preschool programme 3 years before Grade 1 are better prepared for school academically, socially and emotionally. 

The approach to academics in the Pre-primary phase is an informal approach. Children develop and acquire the necessary skills, knowledge, attributes and values which will promote their formal learning in a play enriched, informal and challenging learning environment where each child develops at his or her pace. To acquire the necessary attitude, values, skills and knowledge which will enhance academic learning, learning must not be seen in isolation but, integration into the total curriculum and the development of the whole child.
