Education For Tomorrow
Here at St. Nicholas we have made it our goal to see to it that all students at the school are armed with the tools, guidance and knowledge necessary for a favourable outlook at the end of their primary school life and beyond. We see it as our responsibility to ensure that the students are academically up to and beyond the required standard. The only way that we can do this is to strive to constantly innovate and adapt our teaching methods according to the circumstances at hand. How courses are taught vary according to subject, age group and most importantly student needs. This is our modus operandi when it comes to academics. We recognise that communication and suggestions are very important, from parents and students alike, teacher-student dialogue is always supported and encouraged, so long as it is done in a respectful manner. The parent-teacher relationship is one we believe should be not only cordial, but very interactive and transparent and an excellent avenue for the efficient exchange of information. All of this, of course, in pursuit of Leadership, Progress and Success.
