We, the Community of Da Silva Academy School, strive to provide equal educational opportunities for children, irrespective of race or creed. We endeavor to create an atmosphere of understanding and dedicate ourselves to the full development of the child. We commit ourselves to a broad and relevant 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 accept responsibility for them. We will further 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 constant interaction. Our School aims to provide a warm, supportive environment, conducive 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.
Da Silva Academy Primary School aims to provide an education of quality which will prepare its pupils holistically for life.
This education will be characterised by:
The objective is the optimum achievement of the potential of each child.
Our core values are:
G – Gratitude
R – Respect
E – Empathy
A – Acceptance
T – Truth
Our Motto is: “Be proud”
It is the basic philosophy at Da Silva Academy that every one of our children must be given the maximum opportunity in order to prepare them for life. This means more than academic achievement or success in examinations. At Da Silva Academy, we aim to create a secure and caring environment in which children can experience success and achieve their full potential within a broad and balanced curriculum. The value of personal, social and moral development is implicit in all that we do.
Our overriding goal is to establish and foster values for life. To do this, it is essential that we work in partnership with all of our parents. Growth in personal development, self-discipline, education in practical and social skills, vocational guidance, development; development of sporting talents and leisure interests – all of these are important goals.

In March 2020, spurred by the advent of a full country-wide lockdown mandated by the South African government to combat the spread of the novel Coronavirus, Da Silva Academy Primary embarked on an ambitious e-learning project.
In order to ensure that no child at Da Silva Academy Primary was left behind, the school management team created a set of specifications designed to embrace the circumstances of all its learners.
Mindful of the fact that many children might not have easy access to a computer or smartphone, and parents might struggle with the costs of data, it was decided that a self-paced online system was required. This meant that a learner could log on whenever a computer/smartphone and cheap data was available, whatever the time of day.The result was Google classroom and whtsapp communications.
The staff at Da Silva Academy Primary continue to develop this all-encompassing system. Even when lockdown lifts and schools return to normal in the future, all pupils at Da Silva Academy Primary will reap the benefits, as they will be able to use the materials for revision and remedial work.
