We recognize that each child is a unique individual, and we aim to develop our students to be the best that they can be. St Thomas Aquinas is committed to offering the highest standards of quality teaching and learning. We aim to stretch our learners to acquire the skills of teamwork, independent research, self knowledge, and critical thinking.
Sport has always been an integral part of the holistic education offered at our school. Sport not only promotes physical fitness, but develops character. We offer physical education lessons from Grade 00 – Grade 9. Our students participate in a number of different sports. Soccer, hockey, netball, tennis, cricket, golf and athletics are just some of the sports being offered at our school. St Thomas has a proud record of past and present students who have made provincial selection in their respective sports. We are committed to improving our sport.
St Thomas Aquinas offers a number of cultural activities. Students attend music lessons at school. There is a junior and senior primary choir. Our two marimba bands are very popular and are invited to attend social events as well as competitions in Gauteng. Our students enter the Arts Festival, Olympiads and Young Scientists Expo. There is an annual talent show. Educational tours are a regular occurrence.
St Thomas Aquinas School students work toward a mission of building a community that cares enough to reach out to the poor, helping to build a better world for others. Community service is an important part of our school life. We try to be the hands of Jesus touching the world with love today. Our students experience a tremendous payback of joy and fulfillment that comes from reaching out with love and helping others in need.
