ACHIEVEMENTS

  •  

    Over the past 100 years the school has achieved many milestones. One of our proudest achievements is the erection of the new double storey classroom block containing five classrooms and the tuck shop. Currently, the new building houses the new grade R classes and three grade 3 classes. Named the Clive Allman Wing, it was named after the now retired principal who served in this position from `1993 until 2008. Making this even more remarkable, the whole building was constructed using school fees money. No assistance from government was given nor offered. The building of the vegetable garden to feed the many learners attending our school. This includes an outdoor classroom where learner can plant seeds and learn more about plants, flowers and food. The opening of an Academy called the Yeoville Boys Academy. It was opened to address the opportunity that arose to identify, develop and nature skills to full potential. Read more about the academy in the link below. The purchase of a school bus. A partnership with God’s First Church in Rosebank, providing the school with necessary assistance such as food for our feeding scheme, providing professional assistance in the field of social worker and Occupational therapists and many other forms of assistance.

    YEOVILLE BOYS ACADEMY

    The Yeoville Boys Academy is an initiative of Yeoville Boys Primary School. It was formally opened in August 2010. It was formed recognizing the enormous talent that lay idle in the Yeoville Community.

    Yeoville is a poor community with most of the families living below the poverty datum line. Hence the talented members are not likely to be exposed to quality coaching and teaching to develop and expose their talents so that they reach their full potential. Most of the boys will enrol at schools that do not have proper sporting facilities and some will drop out because the parents are unable to pay their school fees. The academy therefore seeks to identify the talents in the community, develop and nurture it to it’s full potential. However, to achieve this, the Academy is an independent body run within the school and relies solely on the monthly fees charged to its members. The Academy however, tries to get sponsorship and bursaries to assist with burden of memberships. The Academy also seeks to cooperate with surrounding high schools to assist with learners in obtaining bursaries to study further at high school. The Academy is currently open to all boys aged 5 to 14 years of age. Registration requires interested parties to complete an application form available at Yeoville Boys’ Primary School.

The replacement of all the old green writing boards (with chalk) with whiteboards, making learning in the classroom more interactive. Have computers in all the classrooms, so easy access to websites become less of a challenge. A computerized and modern Media Centre whereby books are more easily accessible for the learners.
