Da Silva Academy School was founded in 2013 by Mr and Mrs Da Silva. Their vision was for a School of extraordinary ethos to offer school aged pupils a holistic education based on Christian values. This vision has not changed in the years since then.
Da Silva Academy’s goal is to develop the potential of each of its pupils. In order to achieve this, it is Da Silva Academy’s policy to expose its pupils to the various disciplines offered by the School: scholarship, sportsmanship and culture.
The School views each of these disciplines as inherently important and as complementary components of a balanced, holistic education. We do not take the view that academic work is the only success criteria in the School. Although there is an emphasis on academic discipline and achievement, the importance of a balanced life style encompassing physical activity and wellbeing, as well as cultural involvement is impressed upon the learners and to this end they are expected to participate in the full school programme.
Da Silva Academy prides itself on developing the individuality of each of its children and is fortunate in having small numbers, which allows this concentration of attention.
Da Silva Academy strives to instill an ethos of high self-esteem, self-respect and well behavior in all its pupils. These qualities are vital to allow every child to be the best that they can be.
Ethos is defined as the characteristic spirit of a community, people or system. Every member of the School’s community contributes their own special gifts to make the School unique.
Individual teachers, learners, parents and support staff become touched by the atmosphere pervading our independent School and the longevity of service of some of the staff is explained by their devotion to this Rustenburg institution.
We, the Community of Da Silva Academy Combined School, strive to provide equal educational opportunities for children, irrespective of creed or race. We endeavor to create an atmosphere of understanding and of learning and we dedicate ourselves to the full progress and development of each child. We commit ourselves to an extensive and pertinent curriculum so that each child can develop emotionally, spiritually, physically, and academically, thus enabling him/her to acquire a good self-image. We will create situations in which the children will make choices and decisions and accept responsibility for them. We will further full staff development both professionally and personally. In pursuing this mission, we strive to promote a feeling of pride in the school and encourage pupil/parent involvement in all areas, through consistent cooperation. Our School aims to provide a pleasant, supportive environment that is helpful to the attainment of academic excellence, high moral standards, spiritual growth, social and cultural awareness and good physical health. We will provide a vibrant academic atmosphere, in which every learner is valued as an individual, challenged as a learner and inspired to contribute to society.
