Primary School

Harriston is an IEB registered primary school. This means that there is external validation of the standards of the school through assessment and bench-marking tools. Teachers are also afforded professional developmental opportunities that are tailored to primary schools. These include user groups and country wide networking. This collaboration ensures that children are fully prepared for High School as well as tertiary education and that any problems are identified and re-mediated early. The IEB primary schools focus on the inculcation of the 21st century skills of communication, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity.

Curriculum

At Harriston we believe in the identification and development of the unique talents  innate in each child. We acknowledge that each child is an individual, therefore, is treated as such.  The CAPS curriculum forms the basis of our academic program but we place emphasis on understanding and knowing and therefore our highly qualified staff tailor their lessons to cater for individual growth. We actively strive to develop young people who engage with the world on a holistic base and who will live with integrity.   Academically, we seek to grow critical thinkers and help the children to develop positive thinking habits and traits. This is done by routinely applying thinking standards in a deep, qualitative manner in order to answer, solve, create, prove, invent and generate. We also have a qualified remedial teacher on the staff who assists any children who need additional support.

To ensure that we achieve our aims we have introduced an “integrated day”. This means that our sport and cultural programs are included during the school day.

Sport

A well balanced and happy child tends to learn effortlessly.  With this in mind, we offer the following sports:

  • Athletics
  • Rugby (Boys)
  • Netball (Girls)
  • Hockey (Boys and Girls)
  • Cricket (Boys)
  • Soccer (Boys and Girls)
  • Tennis
  • Squash
