SHANAN CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
"Shanan" is a Hebrew word, In the Old
Testament meaning "To teach diligently"
We use the ACE - parent - teacher -
There are wonderful incentives that we as
educators use to encourage and motivate
your child during school hours. It is
however, up to the learner to respond to
Homework is optional! However, the
work they need to complete which has
not been completed at school, should
ideally be taken home for homework. It
is critical that this is completed to the
best of the child's ability under your
supervision. You, the parents must
ensure that the work is completed!
Homework also includes studying and
preparing for a check up or self test.
Any work not completed satisfactorily,
delays academic progress the following
day, and ultimately prevents completion of
the work required for the year. This causes
unnecessary pressure on the child.
Consistent, diligent and thorough
work on a daily basis is the key
to progressing effectively through
a year's work.
Testimonial - Ryan Anderson (Past Learner)
I am about to start my Masters degree in Geography at the University of Pretoria after having successfully
completed a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Management with no less than six distinctions.
Through my studies, I have had the opportunity to go to Mauritius, work with game park management of
several game reserves, present to the M.P of Mpumalanga, preformed community work in Venda and
assisted in research conducted in St. Lucia, the Drakensberg and even a Sappi Pine Tree Plantation.
Many doors of opportunity exist for me in the future and much of the success that I have can be attributed
to the knowledge, wisdom, character building and life - lessons that I have learnt through the staff at
Shanan and the system it employs.
Congratulations to Shanan Christian School on reaching its 21st birthday,an important one in our culture,
and to all the staff that have been and still are involved in shaping children's lives and pointing them to
Christ, To parents, you have made a good decision to place your child in this school. All Glory to God.
