At Maragon Private Schools we believe in a well-balanced curriculum and base our award system on the following five pillars: Academics, Sport, Cultural activities, Leadership and Service. To enable our learners to take optimal advantage of the opportunities at Maragon Private Schools, a well-planned extra-mural timetable is drawn up, enabling a holistic approach to the development of our learners.
In order to engender a sense of pride and positive competition, Maragon is divided into three houses: Martial(blue), Bateleur(red) and Wahlberg(yellow). During the course of the year, these houses compete in a range of sporting, cultural and academic activities. In the High School the winning house is awarded the House Trophy.
EXTRA MURAL POLICY
It is preferred that learners should take part in at least one school-based extra-mural activity per term. Learners should attend all practices and be punctual. If a learner is absent from school, it is essential that parents inform the relevant coach timeously. A note to support this will enable the coach to keep an accurate register. If a learner does not attend 80% of all practices, he/she cannot be taken into consideration for awards, colours etc.
Learners must wear the correct sports attire at all times. The correct sports attire is available from both our school stockists - Student School Wear at Featherbrooke Centre in Ruimsig and Viva Sports in The Highway, Florida.
The following extra-mural activities are offered in the High School Phase:
|TERM 1||TERM 2||TERM 3||TERM 4|
