At Topolino Private School we believe that each Gr7 student should be given the opportunity to grow and develop skills associated with leadership. We do not appoint prefects as it is our aim to promote and develop leadership skills in all the students. We focus on developing these skills through our leadership program and the practical portfolio experiences the students gain throughout the year.
Our portfolio groups consist of a general community group in which all the Gr 7 students partake. Before the start of their Gr 7 year the students are assigned to one of the following 7 groups:
Library & School Newspaper
The leadership characteristics we focus on are:
Emotional awareness of themselves and others.
Openness to new ideas and alternative points of view.
This approach recognises that all students can be leaders and that the leadership skills learnt will lay the foundation for future leadership opportunities.
SCHOOL ANTHEM ( Click to view )
Waar die Langebaan se strandmeer vloei,
Flaminke aan die oewers broei
En die fynbos die veld met kleur beklee,
Staan ‘n skool wat hom verbind
Tot die toekoms van elke kind
Met ‘n visie so wyd soos die see.
Topolino, Topolino, elke kind is ‘n juweel
Hier kry ons met kuns en kennis
Elk ons spesiale deel
Topolino, Topolino, ons is besig om te bou
Aan die gawes waarmee God ons toevertrou.
Waar daar seile oor die water vaar,
Ou Postberg die natuur bewaar
Is eeu oue spore vasgelê
Heer, wil U die voetspoor wees
Wat ons lei deur U gees
Topolino wil U dankie sê!
Where we children grow up big and strong
With special teachers to help us
What a blessing we have to be here
Spending precious days together
Learning God’s valuable lessons
Topolino each child is a jewel!
