Five secrets formulate the essence that ensures success at SACS Junior School:
History – Steeped in time, space and pride as South Africa’s oldest school of 184 years, SACS achieves a dualism that welds the traditional, ‘back to basics’ philosophy with a progressive initiative to lead at the cutting edge of modern education.
Holistic Education – Our main objective thrusts towards ‘Learning for Life’. A wide range of opportunities is offered across the Academic Curriculum and Extra Mural Programme respectively.
Maintaining the Balance – Sport, Academics, Culture and Social – an acronym forming ‘SACS’ – comprise four cornerstones upon which our Whole School Programme is founded.
The Family Ethic – SACS depends wholeheartedly on the generous, volunteering spirit of our parents and staff whose teamwork is simply amazing!
Proudly South African – SACS continues to strive towards her goal of growing diversity within South African society.
