Footprints P.L.A.Y. provides education to children aged 3 to 12 on the base. The children will attain higher education outside the base when they complete primary school years. Our goal is not only to provide education, but also to equip children to live a positive, successful and more fulfilling life.
The day begins with devotions, which sets the atmosphere for the joy, peace and reality of daily life . The school incorporates the CAPS curriculum as well as field trips, music, art and physical activity.
All teachers, both local as well as foreign, give of their time voluntary.
Each and every child taken into the Footprints P.L.A.Y. family is assessed, encouraged and mentored on a continual basis, in order to ensure that they reach their maximum potential. It is in this area specifically that the Footprints P.L.A.Y. ambassadors play a pivotal role with the individual mentoring of each specific Footprints P.L.A.Y. child.
Here are some of the beautiful success stories of our children:
Lebo undefeated in Inter Primary Athletics (200m) and Most Improved Learner in her class;
Mahau and Mickie awarded certificates from Play Tennis SA for Excellence;
Qhamani for excellent behaviour in her class (3 months ago she could not speak English); and
Kogetso has been awarded certificates for Choir and Drama excellence.
