Vision & Values

Charter

APPS is a small, English-medium, Christian girl’s primary school that offers its pupils a nurturing environment and enables them to realise their full potential. We have a committed and experienced teaching staff and an involved school community.

We value self-esteem in its pupils, hard work and trusting relationships between pupils, staff and parents. We are a Christian school and encourage all to take part in school worship, while striving to include the ethnic, cultural, spiritual and social diversity of South Africa.

APPS fosters intellectual curiosity and encourages pupils to think for themselves. Whilst continuing to concentrate on academic excellence, it also impacts life skills and techniques to equip the pupils to cope with rapid change. Galatians 5:22-23

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” underpins our value-based curriculum. We feel that these values from the Bible underpin all values needed to live a good life, including all religions and cultural groups.

A Beacon of Excellence

APPS is founded upon the principles of consultation and participation. The parents elect the Executive Committee who, with the Head, shape policy and manage finance.

The Head is responsible for the management of the school. The staff are of a high calibre and are encouraged to develop their skills and competencies. This interactive structure, together with a variety of voluntary parent service groups, provides a powerful community experience.

APPS is managed on a conservative financial basis consistent with a quality education and competitive remuneration for its staff. Additional means are constantly sought to assist more children from diverse backgrounds to enjoy an APPS education.
