Welcome to Silverleaf Primary School.
It is with great pleasure for me to be a part of the Silverleaf family. Our school was founded in 2015 and is situated in the poorly disadvantaged area of Dunoon. I would like to take on the honour of painting a picture of this beloved institution. Silverleaf Primary is an institution that prides itself in providing excellent education as per our vision (insert vision) we carry it in our hearts and wear it as a badge that each and every learner is unique and a differentiated approach is key. Within this short period of time, we have managed to achieve amazing results that do not only reflect quantity but the quality of teaching offered. We have achieved this by following a value-driven outlook to encourage our children to be respectful, to persevere, be compassionate, and above all to excel. Our primary focus is not just on academics, we want to nurture our students holistically and that is achieved through our extracurricular and co-curricular activities. Our learners have since participated in spelling bees, choir competitions, and sports tournaments.
Principal of Silverleaf Primary
As a school principal I believe that education should not be done alone, we have strong links to partnerships with everyone who is willing to assist with our school. Whether it be social workers, nurses, NGO’s, funders or donors. At Silverleaf all of our students feel at home, we have created a warm and positive environment and this shows in our high levels of attendance of learners and teachers. Silverleaf aims for all our learners to enjoy their time at the school as they make memories that will last them a lifetime. We strive to equip our learners and staff with personal skills and attributes needed to be successful in their respective fields but also be good and upright citizens in society.
Let me leave you with my favourite quote “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
