From Seed to Soil

TEACHING THE NEXT GENERATION 

The vegetable garden at Alta du Toit School currently consists of 1,400 plants. Further eight trays were recently added, each containing 200 plants. A new plot of land is also being prepared for additional spinach cultivation. 

We are in the process to establish an 

on-site compost heap, with the active involvement from the learners. This will contribute to the production of compost by fermenting banana peels into a 

nutrient-rich tea, which serves as nourishment for the plants. 

Learners enthusiastically gather banana peels and gain firsthand knowledge on gardening methods and nurturing plants. We extend our gratitude to Accountability (Pty) Ltd for their generous support of this initiative.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Alta du Toit School treated our learners to our annual Christmas lunch yesterday! The dining hall was decorated and our kitchen staff made the most delicious flame grilled burger meals! Everyone was in high spirits and one could see the learners’ excitement for the festive season ahead! What a cheerful way to end the school year!!! We want to thank Function Hire 4 You and our sponsors for making the day possible!

ALTA DU TOIT BREAK THROUGHS

Alta Du Toit Teacher of the Month

Mrs Ferreira is the Curriculum Head at Alta du Toit School and middle phase acting head of department. As curriculum head she is doing a sterling job by ensuring all teachers are updated regarding latest developments. She arranged many training sessions in 2022 for staff and already have a plan in place for training in 2023. She is not only a good teacher, but also an implementer of what is required to make a difference in the lives of staff and learners at the school.

Our Latest Success Story

Student-Centered Learning 

“If a child cant learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn”. These words by Ignacio Estrada inform how Alta du Toit School supports our students. Adapting the way we teach gives us far better results than trying to continue doing work that will not assist in the way the students learn

Alta Du Toit Initiatives

Presidential Youth Employment

The PYEI addresses the concerning issue of unemployment amongst the youth in South Africa. The Education & General School Assistants pictured below forms part of Phase III of this initiative.
