Awards at Walmer

Every year a number of learners receive awards and certificates at WEPS.  We just love awarding our young learners who work hard academically and those who are well behaved.  Awards are also presented annually for Art and Sport.

Here are some pictures of learners who have recently received awards:

Learning Afrikaans at Walmer

The majority of our learners, being Xhosa (80%) or English (15%) mother tongue speakers, find Afrikaans quite difficult. 

This is why I've started to design an Afrikaans (for English speakers) course since last year.  Thus far this course has proven to be very successful.  So much so that our Grade 4 learners are really starting to enjoy learning this language.

Here are some pictures of them during one of the Afrikaans sessions (on a Friday, being Casual Wear Day):

Parents can help them learn even faster by participating.  The text can be downloaded by clicking the words:  AFRIKAANS VIR BEGINNERS
