Laerskool Generaal Chistiaan De Wet Primary strives to create an amazing atmosphere for our learners. We aspire to help each learner to be the best and most successful version of themselves. Not only do we act as their school parents, but also as their teachers, psychologists, police officers, travel agents, confidantes, bankers, librarians, custodians, psychics, doctors, politicians, party planners, decorators, news reporters, detectives, clowns or comedians, dietitians and also preachers :
“When we seem to stray from the values, I become a preacher, but I’m proud to have to be these people because… I’m proud to say, “I am a Teacher.”Mr. Tiaan van der Merwe
…The art of teaching involves not only the dispensing of facts and terminology, but also the learning of cultures, needs, and perspectives which may not match our own:
“Don’t struggle to be a better teacher than everybody else. Simply be a better teacher than you ever thought you could be.”Robert John Meehan
Teachers not only listen, but also coach and mentor their students. They are able to help shape academic goals and are dedicated to getting their students to achieve them. Teachers have patience for their students and are understanding when a concept isn’t taking.
