Our characteristic for term 3 is Responsibility.



Playball is a sport and movement program. The programme is taught in a fun-filled, energetic and positive environment. This is a fun and structured program engaging children in physical ball skill activities.

Why is it beneficial to your child?

The medium of sports is used to improve motor development, increase concentration, build muscle tone, improve hand-eye and foot-eye coordination and improve balance along with countless life skills. At Playball your children learn persistence, courage, responsibility, teamwork, self worth, and numerous other attributes. Playball motivates children to participate in sports and sparks an interest in physical activity.


A creative and engaging approach to movement encouraging your child to learn and develop in a safe FUNtastic environment. Monkeynastix is a broad-based holistic programme that combines creativity and music with basic training in flexibility, balance, strength, agility, co-ordination and body awareness.

This programme focuses and concentrates on physical, mental, social and rugby-based skills, while teaching the children the importance of safety whilst practising the sport.  A fun, positive, energetic and stimulating environment is created in order to ensure that the children develop life skills, social and team skills in a constructive and balanced manner.

Why is this program beneficial to your child?

It develops physical fitness, strength and skills development development from an early age.  This program allows your child early exposure to correct rugby skills and techniques while enhancing the importance of a healthy life style.  This program teaches your child social skills like sportsmanship and cooperation while promoting a healthy sense of competition and motivation.  By being part of a sports program, self-esteem and self worth are established and maintained.  Sport requires memorisation, repetition and learning, these skills being directly relevant to class activities.  Other important life skills are learned through this programme e.g.  team work, effective communication, goal setting, and determination.

(This program is incorporated into the Topolino Pre-Primary syllabus, for all boys in the Grade R classes.)




At Topolino, sport is considered to be part of the syllabus and therefore compulsory for all the gr. 1, 2 and 3 boys and girls. Eye-hand co-ordination, balance, team work, learning to win (and lose), valuable skills needed for tennis, soccer, hockey, cricket, netball and rugby, amongst other things, are some of the benefits of doing sport.

In the first and fourth terms, the grades 1 to 3 play mini cricket on Tuesdays. They learn to play mini cricket (a wonderful way of learning the basics of the cricket game, and having lots of fun at the same time). The girls enjoy it as much as the boys, and do not miss practices! Each age group is coached by a teacher, or parent. Every child has an opportunity to field, bowl and bat. The children play a number of mini cricket games against neighbouring schools.

On Thursdays the children have ‘ball skills’ in which they are taught skills needed in rugby, netball, hockey, tennis and soccer. They are divided into smaller groups and move from one activity station to another. Each activity station has a teacher, or parent, who works with the group and presents a particular activity using a variety of sports equipment.

Not only is it a wonderful way to introduce young children to sport (without unnecessary pressure to perform) but Topolino’s proud sporting achievements are a testimony to how well the skills are honed in the early years. The children are inspired to live a healthy, more active, life in the process.
