The BUCCLEUCH MONTESSORI Primary was established in 1999 and was a natural continuation from the preschool experience, into their Primary years, allowing our children to continue enjoying our forward thinking education allowing them to really connect with knowledge with our unrivalled curriculum in our carefully prepared ‘multi-age’ environments, namely Junior Primary 6- 9 years and Senior Primary 9 – 13 years. Our curriculum offers opportunities for collaborative intellectual exploration in which each child’s strengths and interests are supported and guided and where the development of self-confidence, imagination and intellectual independence as well as their insatiable curiosity and excitement for learning is nurtured.
Children in this age group are starting to realize that the world is an enormous, interesting place. They are primed to study continents, cultures, scientific concepts, and great literature. We foster an understanding of the child’s role in their community, in their culture and in the natural world where they begin to discover the interconnectedness of the universe. The world becomes their classroom. At BUCCLEUCH MONTESSORI Primary, your child will have the opportunity to learn absolutely amazing things! Our classes are continually filled with joy, excitement and enthusiasm for learning maths, science, language, botany, zoology and geography. Our children are deeply engaged in work that they find interesting, meaningful, and often intriguing.
At BUCCLEUCH MONTESSORI Primary, we integrate art, music, computer studies and physical education into our curriculum. Our children carry their passion for school into their team sport, music and art participation. We pride ourselves in our high level of competitive interschool sports participation, unique to BUCCLEUCH MONTESSORI, we regularly win fixtures in soccer (won two Jabulani interschool soccer tournaments and broke a record in our U-11 team for being undefeated), cricket, softball (won the Arnold classic and some of our players were chosen to represent Gauteng in the regional team), athletics, cross-country and netball (players chosen to play in the regional team). In music we continually achieve the highest accolades in national eisteddfods – both instrumental and choir. In art, we achieved an ‘A’ average for our entries in to the Art eisteddfod. We have an annual concert production at the barnyard theatre whereby we stage a spectacular revue in which every single pupil takes part, performing to an audience of over 600 people. Our children continually work on outreach projects with our ‘Spirit of Ubuntu’ team whereby they assist where they can in the underprivileged communities and animals in distress. Our primary children go on annual camps.
