A home away from home...
At the KJS boarding establishment the staff endeavour to create a warm and supportive environment where your child will develop holistically.
During well supervised daily homework preparation sessions your child will be guided in their extended learning and encouraged to develop a sound work ethic and qualities of individual responsibility.
Living in a shared environment your child will follow the principles of courtesy, respect for others; values which are at the heart of the
Kokstad Junior School's way of life.
Our full time housemother quickly becomes a mother figure to the children entrusted into her care and liaises closely with parents. A positive attitude towards the importance of teamwork, mutual support and honesty, loyalty, self-discipline and sel-confidence are all encouraged by the house mother who is at all times available for each individual child's needs.
Under a staff member's constant supervision the children attend to their homework, enjoy their leisure time and move to and from school safely.
From the kitchen to the laundry, from the dormitories to the garden, our team really works well together. Tastefully decorated dormitories allow two or four pupils to relax in a homely atmosphere and at meals times you can be assured of "food fit for a king". The proof is in the eating.
The Kokstad Junior hostel offers outstanding facilities. A T.V. allows the children to relax and socialize comfortably. Our outdoor activities range from exciting soccer matches, social tennis and playing on the jungle gym to quiet times spent reading in the beautiful gardens.
The annual Christmas dinner is an event not to be missed. The children are spoilt with a feast of festive decorations and mouth watering food.
