Robotics becomes compulsory at Gallagher Combined School

We realise that the formal curriculum does not prepare our children for their lives in the future. In fact, with the dramatic development of new techology, such as drones, driverless cars, robots, artifical intelligence etc, nobody knows what that future will be like. The best we can do is guess.

We take the view that whatever the future holds for them, it will require them to be able to think creatively and analytically. Then to apply available techological resources to turn their thoughts into reality.

For this reason, we have decided that in 2021, robotics will become an additional subject at our school for grades 7, 8 and 9.

And, because we consider it so important, we are making it compulsory. As with the Japanese abacus classes which are also compulsory, there will be no additional school fees.

Parents will only be required to purchase the educational material which their child will need. This starts with a kit from Takealot which is currently priced at R1 099.

 

School Hours & After School

Normal school hours start at 07h30 each day except Mondays and Fridays which start at 07h20. The school closes at 14h00  each day except for Grade 7 and upwards who remain until 14h30 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. School gates open at 06h30.

We offer after school care in the form of homework facilities followed by extra-mural activities until 17h00. There is an extra fee for this service (see SCHOOL FEES).
