Welcome to Welkom Academy of Excellence
At Welkom Academy of Excellence, we understand that the road to success requires more than education alone. It requires taking each individual learner’s needs into consideration by nurturing the “whole child”.
This can be achieved through embracing and valuing the process of laying a strong foundation from which successful and inclusive 21st Century education can be built on by focussing on providing a balanced combination of both academic and nonscholastic activities, inclusive of all aspects of the child’s well-being, including social-emotional, physical, creative and cognitive abilities.
In preparing this foundation, we acknowledge that before a child can be effectively educated, certain basic needs need to be met. These include respect, a sense of belonging, love, recognition, mindfulness, friendship and security, to only name a few. All which they receive at our school.
Children are our future and we need to do everything in our ability to give them the best chance to become productive members of society as an adult.
We envisage accommodating all learner needs for extra-curricular participation in sporting and a wide range of cultural activities, not to mention Coding, Robotics and Tech days to only mention a few. Our aim is to also invite schools in the area to participate and/or compete with us in these fields.
COMMUNITIES THAT SURROUND THE SCHOOL
Welkom Academy of Excellence is situated in the heart of a vibrant Free State Mining town community that is rich with potential. Many young families reside here, and it is a safe and beautiful environment for children to grow up in. Parents in the community value the importance of good education and the children are taught good values at home and the importance of hard work, in order to achieve excellence.
RELATIONSHIPS WITH SCHOOLS IN THE AREA
We will be working closely with the other schools in the Edulife group. Being a seasoned Educationist that will be running a new school, I understand and value the importance of a support system.
As Welkom Academy of Excellence grows, we aim to build strong sporting teams that can compete with the surrounding schools on the sports field, both within our group and other schools in the community.
