More about academics at Eversdal Primary School
Eversdal Primary School has developed a unique curriculum that utilises various open source material from the Department of Basic Education. This material forms the basis of our content and curriculum development and aligns with the prescribed CAPS guidelines. This content is provided to each learner through printed textbooks and e-formats.
In the spirit of embracing modern learning techniques and digital development, students at Eversdal Primary are taught with tablets to strengthen communication, expose them to various media and easily collaborate.
The curriculum is taught through Microsoft OneNote, which is accessible on any desktop, laptop, smartphone or tablet. This platform helps ensure that each learner receives their learning material electronically and makes it easy for educators to build and add useful media to learning material.
This platform guides in-person learning as students are directed where to go through. This creates live media that is more engaging for students and easily caters to all learning styles. Each student’s learning environment is private, only accessible by the student and teacher. This makes it easy to monitor and provide additional support if necessary.
This opens the door to a whole new level of learning and teaching. By making notes, inserting relevant pieces of media and creating fun new content, students at Eversdal Primary School are equipped with everything they may need to develop a new, intellectual way of thinking, reasoning and problem-solving.
