The Intermediate Phase uses progressive teaching methods in small classes. Carefully selected, professional and dedicated educators encourage individual expression and questioning of ideas, as they impart the knowledge, skills and attitudes for the 21st century.
Our first priority at Saint Conrad’s College is always to live up to our ethos – Deus Caritas Est. Academics is the second priority where our Intermediate Phase educators strive to bring the best out of our learners. The small classes ensure that every learner gets individual attention. Our teaching methods are highly professional and we are using the latest technology and support materials to enable interactive teaching.
Carpe Diem Society
The Carpe Diem Society motivates learners to do their best throughout the year. Grade 6 and Grade 7 learners qualify for the Carpe Diem Society when they achieved an 85% average for two consecutive terms. We are very proud to say that we have always had learners to qualify for the Carpe Diem Society.
Learners who are part of the Carpe Diem Society get the opportunity to enjoy a day’s outing to a very interesting venue. Sometimes they even have the opportunity to go and see some great plays.
The Top 5 learners of each term get the opportunity to enjoy a cup of tea and cake with the educators in the staffroom. With this gesture learners are rewarded for their hard work throughout every term. This also motivates other learners to work harder to be in the Top 5.
The following sports activities are offered at Saint Conrad’s College:
• Cross country.
Every year at the end of the third term, all learners from Grade 4 to Grade 7 have the opportunity to go on different camps. Learners are around positive role models, learn appropriate risk taking, will meet a variety of people and learn creativity in a camp setting. Leadership skills are developed and identified.
With our Market Day, the Grade 7 learners have the opportunity to show off their marketing and business skills.
The aim of the Market Day is not to see how big the profit for the day can be. Market Day forms part of the Grade 7 Economic and Management syllabus. It is therefore an opportunity for the Grade 7 learners to develop their marketing and business skills under the guidance of the educators involved.
An important aspect of the Market Day is that learners must set up their stalls by themselves and no parents are involved.
Air rifle shooting, drumming, art classes, graffiti, photography, pizza making at Scooters Pizza, preparing Sushi at Ocean Basket and ten pin bowling – these are but a few of the fun activities held during our annual primary school Arts Festival!
The Arts Festival offers learners an opportunity to enjoy different activities, presentations and courses. A two day programme ensures that there is something for everyone to do and most of all, to enjoy.

Enthusiasm is the first word that comes to mind when I see the learners at our aftercare facilities. They are focused and involved in the activities at school.
The educators at our aftercare facilities are the mums at school and although all the school rules and regulations are enforced, we try to make the afternoons, not only organised and productive, but also fun by encouraging extra mural participation.
Our mission is to keep the learners safe and secure and to assist them with their homework and studies in a caring environment.
The aftercare facilities were established in January 1999, with one educator and eight learners. Since then we have grown to 147 learners, six educators, two assistants and two Triest clients daily.
