The tree-filled haven of Herzlia Kerem Pre-Primary School’s new campus in Constantia offers the same warm, stimulating preschool experience as before, with an added sense of wonder at nature in all its glory, say the school’s teachers.

“Just being at the campus evokes feelings of wonder and calm, with beautiful trees, wide open space, and bunnies happily playing side-by-side in the lush grass with our children,” says Cara Jacobs, Herzlia Kerem’s head teacher.

This safe and beautiful new haven caters for children from 18 months to Grade R. “Kerem educates pupils using old-fashioned values and methods while incorporating the latest in technology like smart boards for a rich, balanced learning foundation. We always say that people make a space, and then imbue it with their energy. The dedication, time, and effort that has been put into creating our school is tangible and visible. Everything has been thought through from the tiniest detail,” Jacobs says.

“The quality of the teaching and the facilities [at Kerem] are something we are proud of,” says Andries van Renssen, the executive director of United Herzlia Schools (UHS). “Most pupils who finish Grade R at Kerem will come to Herzlia Highlands Primary in the City Bowl when they go to Grade 1. It’s clear that the quality of teaching and care at Herzlia Kerem is the single biggest contributing factor to the success of those who come from there. We celebrate the opening of their new building.”

“Herzlia focuses on developing self-esteem and nurturing each child’s potential. Herzlia Kerem has a magnificent and dedicated team of teachers who stay up-to-date on the latest in childhood trends and issues,” says Geoff Cohen, UHS director of education.

Kerem offers morning and aftercare throughout the year from playgroup through to Grade R. Enrolments are open. Email Cara Jacobs at kerem@herzlia.com to arrange a visit.

KDL Primary teaches chesed through kits for the disadvantaged

Published

on

Grade 6 students at King David Senior Primary Linksfield last week packed and supplied educational hampers to their outreach school, Houghton Primary, which has yet to return to full-time schooling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to generous donors to the King David Schools Foundation, students in Houghton Primary’s Junior Phase received a pack containing age-appropriate worksheets, new stationery, a book and a small treat, along with a personal note written by King David Grade 4 and 5 students.

The initiative is part of teaching students the importance of chesed (kindness), a core value at King David. King David students are able to live this value through the school’s outreach programme, and participate in partnerships that support previously disadvantaged communities.
