Mrs J Pather help our children have fun in experiencing their artistic talents and aid them in developing skills like painting, sculpturing with clay and designing all types of works of art.

The SHINE Centre was established 10 years ago by Maurita Wiesenberg at Observatory Primary School.
It is a literacy programme aimed at Grade 2's as research has shown that if children dont read by the time they are 8 years old, they are unlikely to.
Claremont Primary School has had a centre since 2009 with Di Kerswill as the link person.
40 Volunteers work one on one with over 40 children per week.
Claremont Primary Staff has been very opening and welcoming to SHINE and we hope to go from strength to strength.
We have a small tuck shop, run by Mrs van Rensburg, that provides fruit juice, pies, cool drinks, sweets and chips for the unquenchable appetites of our very active young children.
Our new Computer Lab (called the Khanya Lab) was fitted out by the Department with 24 brand new computers that are used by all the Learners and Educators to reinforce and help with basic curriculum subject learning.
Classes go to this lab with their Educator and are helped with using math, reading and other programs. They also use the Internet for research.
Dance lessons are given by Mr M Godongwana and Mr T Mbatsha who instruct all classes, individually, in different forms of dance as part of their curriculum marks for Creative Arts.
