The Little Dolphins Pre-School
The Dolphin Elementary School follows the curriculum of the Namibian Ministry of Basic Education and Culture. However, this curriculum is expanded upon and considerably enriched from Grade 1 – 6.
Our Grade 7 students study CAPS. We aim prepare our students from an early age to cope with the high demands of the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) examinations towards which they work and will write in Grade 12.
Assessment & Awards
Grade 1 – 4 uses continuous assessment to monitor the progress of students. The Grade 5 – 7 progress report mark is made up of continuous - and formal assessments. Tests are written throughout each trimester while examinations are written at the end of each trimester.
The annual prize-giving in the beginning of each year rewards students who had excelled academically during the previous academic year.
IEB pilot scheme (Primary Schools Initiative)
The IEB Primary Schools Initiative (PSI) aims to broaden the awareness of the importance of good teaching and assessment practices at the primary school level. It aims to establish a strong collaborative network of primary school educators who are fully conversant with local and global trends, developments and standards and assist primary school teachers in embedding these in their daily classroom interactions with learners.
