foundation phase

The foundation phase is probably the most important phase in anybody's life.
As the name suggest it is the foundation that your child's school education is built on.
At Strubenvale Primary we strive to give your child that good foundation for his/her educational life. It is the years that will determine the child's views of themselves and the world. It can determine their later success or failure in school and work.
Therefore it is important for the parent/guardian to play an active role in the child's forming years by being involved.
