A word from the headmaster
“We have an exceptional school here at Woodridge and from Grade 000 right through to Grade 12 you will find an impeccable foundation of care, of tolerance, of acceptance. At Woodridge we recognize that you love your child. We will care deeply about your son and your daughter and we will partner with you to encourage and build the right-thinking young men and women that our country needs for tomorrow. As you browse our website you will find these threads connecting all aspects of our school.”
Within this beautiful environment, our children are free to experience learning through play and discovery. Teachers make full use of their indoor, as well as outdoor, natural classroom, guiding the children in their development of fine and gross motor skills, early literacy and numeracy.
At Woodridge we strive to help each and every pupil achieve their potential and in doing so, produce caring, confident individuals who will be able to make a positive contribution to society. School must be a rewarding and fun experience. At Woodridge we want our children to be open-minded, free and creative thinkers.
The College incorporates Grades 8 – 12, with the culmination for the pupils being the writing of the National Senior Certificate examination. Academic pursuits remain the primary focus of College activities. We write the Independent Examinations Board (“IEB”) matric examinations. Pupils are in the hands of skilled professionals.
Good Day Parents
I am most grateful to Wendy Kelly for supplying the photo above. It captures the wonderful blend of youth and innocence so astutely.
As you know the new Matopos is coming along very nicely. Each week sees huge changes on the site and I am most encouraged by the speed with which it is all taking shape. One cannot be anything less than thoroughly impressed with this exciting development and there is a palpable sense of anticipation on campus at this time.
I attach some current photographs for you of the site taken this week. I know that many of you will have seen the area recently when you dropped your sons and daughters at School on Monday evening, but I do hope that for those of you who have not seen the building work recently, these photos will be most encouraging.
I do wish you a very good week ahead.
With my very best wishes.
