It was in the second semester of 1997, through a prophetic utterance by Dr. Bill Hammond that God birthed Kingdom Academy. Approximately seven years before this, God shared His dream for this school with the leadership of the church and sent us on a mission to various other schools to establish His perfect will. After only four months, on the 2nd of February 1998, His dream became a reality when the school started humbly with only 27 children. In what was seemingly a small beginning in 1998, we began to see something far greater than what most of us could have imagined.
We desire to help you in the academic, social, and spiritual development of your children. It is our goal to promote Godliness and moral integrity in our young children, teaching biblical principles, communication skills, and critical “out of the box” thinking. We strive to provide such learning in an environment that also provides cultural and athletic opportunities. We are here to serve you. Please feel free to contact us if you ever have any suggestions or questions. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless and anoint you and your family.
Our vision is to develops a Godly culture in our children to maximize their spiritual, academic, and social potential. Our mission is to influence children passionately daily with the Word of God, develop their God-given potential (spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and physically) prepare them for life so that they will influence their families, friends, and community by living a life characterized by Christ.
School-life balance is important for optimal academic functioning. Students often prioritize academics at the expense of personal factors, including relationships and exercise. We want our children to love truth and pursue it freely, we must liberate them from this fear of learning by showing them that learning can strengthen and extend their faith. We are a community that loves and help each other through the power and support of God.
Extracurricular activities teach children how to work for a common goal and this ultimately develops a sense of responsibility in them. It increases the level of confidence and also teaches them how to co-operate and work with people in different conditions.
Participation in sport can develop children mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually, and it is an important part of the total educational program at Kingdom Academy Primary. One of the major purposes of sporting programs is to train children to “have the mind of Christ” even under the pressure of competition. Our goal in academics and athletics is to develop godly Christian character in children who are willing to be the works of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The National Curriculum is implemented whereby the Content Areas and Specific aims and skills of all learning areas are covered and assessed throughout the year. Foundation Phase digresses from the NCS (CAPS) curriculum, Intermediate and Senior Phases (Grades 4-7) follow the NCS (CAPS) curriculum, except for portions of work that differ from Biblical standards and where reinforcement is necessary. Biblical principles are incorporated into all Learning areas. All learners will also attend Computer lessons and Discipleship every week.
Learners are expected to “do unto others as they would have others do unto them”. Learners are encouraged to display a Christ-like attitude by being respectful and tolerant towards others. No corporal punishment may be administered, however firm control will be kept in the classrooms, and learners are expected to abide by the Kingdom Academy Code of Conduct at all times. In disciplinary matters, the Kingdom Academy’s Disciplinary Code will be followed. If necessary, the educator is allowed to bring the learners back for detention written once. Warnings will be issued according to the code.
Only English is allowed to be spoken in classrooms, except Afrikaans that is only allowed to be spoken during the First Additional language periods. Before school, after school, and during breaks, the language of the learner’s choice may be spoken.
