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.
The media centre has a collection of fiction and nonfiction materials for students to use.
A maximum of 2 books can be borrowed for a period of one week and must be returned by the due date stamped on the date sheet.
The media centre also offers free internet access for students to do research for their projects. NO access to social media on the internet is allowed.

We are one of four Magnet Schools founded in 2003 in Pretoria by the Department of Basic Education.
Music is taught to learners from schools in the Moot and surrounding areas, and learners from any age are welcome to come and join us for a variety of programs.
We offer affordable extracurricular lessons in the following instruments and subjects:
Voice training (Popular music and classical)
Music for toddler
Music as Subject: Learners can take music as eighth subject from grade 10. It is very important to enroll in a music program with us from grade 8 at the latest, in order to be on the correct practical and theoretical level to take the subject.
Internal exams take place every six months to monitor our learners’ progress.
Learners have the opportunity to enroll for Unisa and Trinity exams (both practical and theoretical), and to take part in various eisteddfods and music festivals. We also host two concerts every year to showcase our pupils’ talents.
