Our junior school is located at 28 Bamboes Street Brackendowns Alberton. We currently have seven classes at our junior school. Most classes have a teacher and assistant. Teachers rotate allowing all learners the opportunity to be taught by different teaching practitioners. We do not work according to grades but group the learners according to ability.
