Clarendon Primary School, like its sister schools, focuses on developing the whole child into a lady of dignity, influence and stature. We emphasize the importance of our girls’ individuality, and partner with them to hone their innate skill and value in a values-based educational environment. A wide range of academic, cultural and sporting facilities and programmes enable us to fulfill this intention.
The core values of Clarendon are upheld and pursued by teachers, pupils and parents, all of whom understand the virtues of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring. Whether in class, on the sports field, in cultural activities, or in the numerous charitable outreaches of the school, these values are reinforced on an ongoing basis.
The Primary School launched their ‘Live Right, Grow Bright’ campaign 5 years ago. It consists of 4 facets:
1. ‘Eat right, Grow bright’ – encouraging healthy eating in such a way that it becomes second nature.
2. ‘Move right, Grow bright’ – stimulating optimal brain function through movement.
3. ‘Read right, Grow bright’ – practising our reading four times a week to improve reading rate and memory.
4. ‘Act right, Grow bright’ – encourage healthy thoughts and actions that promote healthy relationships.
The school also offers an “Active Eyes” programme for learners. The programme was originally developed by Dr Sherylle Calder, a leading visual skills and performance specialist. Active Eyes develops visual ability with the objective of improving reading skills, comprehension, mathematic skills, task completion, work habits, concentration and self-confidence. Progress in sport performance is also evident.
