Drama

Learners of Van Riebeeckstrand take part in the annual Kaapse Afrikaanse Eisteddfod and Tygerberg International Eisteddfod. Over the years our learners have excelled in the presentation of Poetry, Prose, Unprepared Reading, Speech Choir, Creative Writing, Art, Pottery and Music and each year they are winners of medals and trophies at these eisteddfods.

Talented learners are identified and are coached in drama by Mrs. M.Venter, Mrs.T.Jordaan and Miss.R.Nortje, as part of our extra mural programme.

In 2017 – 8 trophies (Tygerberg International Eisteddfod) en 13 medals (Kaapse Afrikaanse Eisteddfos) were won.

Pottery

Pottery is offered by Mrs Ora van Renen as an additional extra mural activity on Monday and Tuesday afternoons for one hour (Gr 4-5 and Gr. 6-7). The maximum learners per class is 10, so that every learner can enjoy individual attention. Learners enjoy the social interaction, group dynamics and learn to solve problems together.

Learners master a number of techniques and they focus mainly on pinching, coil and slab techniques. Learners also create solid sculptures from clay. Themes vary from containers to bowls, as well as portraits and figure studies. Animals, birds and fish always remain favourite themes. We frequently exhibit works of Art in the foyer and during our Art exhibition (mass participation) every 3 years.

Learners finish off their works with under glazes, glazes and dioxide. We fire artworks at 1200 degrees Celsius in a 6 cubic feet kiln. These objects can be used as serving dishes etc. and are suitable for household purposes. (Non-toxic)

Learning takes place in a relaxed atmosphere, where everyone can give his/her best. Learners with outstanding works of Art take part in ‘Die Kaapse Afrikaanse Eisteddfod’ where they can receive medals and gold diplomas.

Library

Our school has a fully equipped library at its disposal in which the learners may snoop around and find books to read. The library is an active room. Naturally books are taken out for the enjoyment of reading. However, it is also used to do research complete tasks, to write book reports and to assist with Oral topics.
Learners, as well as teachers make use of the library in order for the learners to reach their full potential. Our school library consists of ± 8000 books. Approximately 1500 to 3000 books are taken out per week.
The library is open after school from Monday to Thursday. Learners also visit the library once a week during library period.
Research sources and reading material for English and Afrikaans learners are available to be taken out.
Learners may take out books from Grade 3 onwards. Three books may be taken out and learners must return it after a fortnight. Books must always be taken care of and returned in an undamaged condition. Learners are then allowed to take out three more books.
In case a learner loses of damages a book, they are liable to pay the monetary value to the library before the may take out other books.
Come and enjoy our library!
