Fathers go to school

Lessons were made fun with the help of the fathers.

Ruimsig Academy believes that family support is an important aspect of their educational philosophy.

“Fathers are an integral part of forming the personality and behaviour of a child, however fathers don’t often have the opportunity to see first-hand what their child is doing at school,” explained Belinda van der Merwe from Ruimsig Academy. She added that the school invites all the foundation phase fathers to join in the morning lessons once per year.

In the week 31 May to 4 June, the fathers had a chance to visit the school and the little ones just loved showing off to their fathers what they can do. “The fathers in turn had fun helping their children with English, maths, science and an art activity to remember the day,” said Van der Merwe.
