E-Learning and Communication
In light of the rotational basis in which learners are attending school (see COP), learning will be supported online to accommodate for the weeks when your child is not at school. See below:
1) Class Dojo - this remains the school's primary form of communication. If you are not registered on Class Dojo, please contact your child's class teacher.
To download Class Dojo, click here.
2) Google Drive - this platform is being used to distribute work during the national lockdown.
To learn more about how to use Google Drive, click here. The access link to the drive will be provided to you by your child's class teacher via Class Dojo.
3) Our Download-and-Go facility is operational. We understand that data is costly. To assist, we invite parents to access the drive and download school work by parking on our top field and making use of the school's network. More information on when this will reopen will be shared shortly. Strict safety protocols are in place. For more information, please see the COP.

School Correspondence Regarding Covid-19
from the Principal
Situated on the side of a hill between Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, Tamboerskloof Primary School continues to flourish, as it has done for the past 117 years.
Established in a house in 1903 with forty children and one teacher, the school now accommodates 440 children and has a staffing complement of over 30. Affectionately known by our students as Tambi, we're a family-styled school and while we value our tradition and heritage, we pride ourselves in offering our students a 21st century school programme.
We create a homely, disciplined environment all while providing a sound, enjoyable and well-rounded education. We insist that our students be presentable and neat, have impeccable manners, show respect toward fellow learners and staff, and always strive for excellence, as inspired by our school motto.
Students are taught by a team of highly qualified teachers who are passionate about education. Classrooms are well-equipped and staff regularly attend training sessions and workshops to ensure that they are at the forefront of development within education.
I am so proud to lead this school and my sincere hope is that we raise students who will become future leaders and upstanding citizens of society.
