Uit die hoof se kantoor / From the Principal’s office

Frannie resizeBaie welkom en dankie dat u die venster van Laerskool Witrivier oopgemaak het om ‘n blik te kry van wie/wat Laerskool Witrivier is.

White River Primary is a school rich in culture and it is fully representative of the Rainbow Nation of South Africa. Our school caters for Afrikaans and English learners separately but they follow exactly the same curriculum for both language groups.  We introduced a double medium class from Gr 4-7 with great success.

Elke opvoeder in Laerskool Witrivier het hom/haar verbind tot “Uitnemende Onderwys in ‘n geballanseerde omgewing”.  Dit beteken dat geen aspek in die onderrig-situasie meer erkenning kry as die volgende.

At White River Primary we strive to present opportunities to our learners and educators and we expect from them to grab these opportunities with both hands.  We do experience failures but we use them to achieve success at a higher level.

Hier leer ons nie net van syfers en letters nie, maar veel eerder om waarlik kind te wees.  Belangriker as blote kennis is die vriendelikheid, respek, vertroue en emosionele selfstandigheid wat ons kinders aanleer.  Laerskool Witrivier se kinders is gelukkige kinders.

White River Primary School is an ordinary school for ordinary people.  We do not strive to be what we cannot be.  Our feet are firmly on the ground and our values are rooted in the teaching of our Saviour Jesus Christ. There is however a place for every child in our school – rich / poor, talented / less talented, achievers / non-achievers, etc.
