Coporate Social Responsibility

1. International youth link

This group of learners interact via Skype with high school students from Charlotte North Carolina, USA on a regular basis. During these sessions it allow students to voice their opinions on world matters such as politics, environmental and social issues. On an informal basis students get to learn about each other’s cultures and social affairs.

2. Blood donation

Your blood saves lives! This is the statement that many brave Woeries live by four times a year when the South African National Blood Service has a blood drive at our school. The learners are very enthusiastic to participate in such a good cause and freely volunteer to donate blood each term to make a difference in the lives of others. We truly believe that we are making a difference and will continue to strive to make every Woerie a part of this wonderful community initiative.

Art Classes

We develop and enhance every person’s own unique style.

Classes start off with pencil drawing.  After mastering that we experiment with different media.  We learn about textures, colour, balance, positives and negatives, placement and perspective to name but a few.  From there, you choose your preferred medium that you would like to focus on, for example oil paint or watercolour.

We owe it to ourselves to make time for ourselves.  This chaotic, rushed life leaves us easily stressed and burnt out.  Make the art class, your time to relax.

There are many benefits to practising art, emotional and social, such as:

  • Stimulating of the senses
  • Creative energy
  • Therapeutic and relaxing
  • Improves discipline and focus in a fun way
  • Build self esteem
  • Deal with inner emotions
  • Promotes bridging of challenges
  • Tool to express yourself
  • Safe escape zone
  • Promote social skills
  • Food for the soul

 

Kids Art Classes

They learn about all the basic art principals but more in a fun way. 

 

We assist High School Learners with their portfolios and extra art classes should they need any.

  • The classes are no bigger than 10 people at a time.
  • Everyone gets individual attention. 
  • Expert advice.
  • Year-end exhibition. 
  • Affordable.
