About Holy Rosary School (Pre-Primary)

Holy Rosary School is a Catholic Day School for Girls from Grade R through to Grade 12. The school is conveniently located in Edenvale, Johannesburg. It was founded by Bishop Shanahan and the Sisters of the Holy Rosary Order in 1940.  While we are faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church, any girl is welcome at Holy Rosary and we welcome the enrichment provided by other cultures and religions.

The Grade 0 Department provides a warm and nurturing introduction to “Big School!” Each morning is a new adventure filled with exciting activities, laughter and fun. Highlights of the year include Mud Day, Grandparents’ Day, Baby Day and a visit to or from St Benedict’s.

Throughout the Primary School, Philosophy for Children (P4C) is incorporated into the academic programme. We live in a fast-paced and ever-changing world. New technologies replace the old; knowledge rests at our fingertips; we are bombarded by truths, half-truths and lies on social media; our world has retained and developed socially pressing problems and we have seen the rise of radicalisation. Philosophy for children (P4C) provides a safe place for children to voice their opinions as well as listen to the opinions of others. The four Cs of P4C aim to create creative, critical, caring and cooperative thinkers. The fundamental principle of P4C is to enter into dialogue within a structured setting. It is within this framework that our children can argue and participate in a communal manner and learn to evaluate their own arguments with regard to social and political life while engaging and acknowledging the points of views of others.
