Academics – Lifestyle of learning

At BenHale Academy we know that your children are your most prized possessions, your legacy. That is why children are not tested to be grouped or ranked, but to get to know their talents, gifts, skills and abilities. By knowing the student personally and the student discovering who they are, we are able to plan more accurate learning paths for our students.

We aim to inspire children with an environment conducive to learning. Our desire is to see children feeling welcome, comfortable and safe at school.

Our staff and faculty are selected with extreme care and purpose. All BenHale Academy educators have the core responsibility to support children in their growth, motivate them with the desire to learn and create a learning environment that is safe and most importantly, to prepare your child for life after school..

Our curriculum is CAPS aligned and comprises of the following subjects:

At BenHale Academy every educator holds formal qualifications in teaching and a registered SACE number, thereby ensuring that we uphold educational excellence throughout the Academy. At the Academy your child’s holistic development is our goal. Every child has his or her own way of learning, own interests and own challenges.

When we think of the school path of our students, we don’t think our influence ends when they leave our school. We will have equipped them with skills to learn throughout their life. Children are responsible for their own learning, but our mission is to encourage and motivate them to realize their full potential – through the joy of learning.

Our Departments

BenHale is set apart through its extensive Entrepreneurial development programs. This comprehensive set of programs supports the development of practical entrepreneurial skills and is aligned with our belief that students, who are able to combine academic knowledge, creativity and practical entrepreneurial skill to start & build a successful business, will achieve more success and financial freedom in life beyond school. To leave school in search of a job, is no longer a feasible plan. University graduates are increasingly unable to find the right job for lack of job availability. The program is about knowledge, discovery, action and responsibility and makes learning about business, money and investing fun, entertaining and experiential. More importantly, this is the time where students begin to discover their “element” – passion & natural talents which leads them closer to their purpose.

Learning real-world entrepreneurial skills does not only happen in the classroom or from a set of books. The program is practical and fun with activities that put these learnt skills to work to make them truly meaningful.

Our students gain exposure in the following areas:

  • Discovering personal interests & strengths
  • Defining sound and feasible business ideas
  • Analysing & understanding market opportunity
  • Identifying & creating monetization models
  • Entrepreneurship A-Z
  • Money – Wealth building
  • Path to financial intelligence for an independent life
  • Transformational Leadership
  • Business Administration
  • The 21st century business environment

Performing Arts is an integral corner stone of our education at BenHale. Exposure to and participation in the Arts helps you define your sense of self and therefore takes centre stage as our students learn to be imaginative, to experiment creatively, developing their own sense of self-expression in a collaborative and dynamic environment. Dramatic Arts curriculum coupled with practical application in Theatre and Dance propels you forward to realizing your unique potential and gives you amazing insights into understanding those around you.

Participation from Grade 1 is available. Creative thinking and creative problem solving are just a few of the necessary skills that are acquired through the Arts. We follow the guidelines as set out by the SA Drama College with qualified and passionate educators who guide and mentor students to find and unlock each individual student’s potential and personal talents. Our Performing Arts programs are diverse and support the development of in-demand 21st century skills ensuring that not only do you discover your own voice but that you have the confidence to let your voice be heard. Performing Arts also supports a direct improvement in language and communication skills, which is vital for life beyond school. Here, students are not only exposed to the arts, but also have the opportunity to expand their horizons with both local and national competitions, eisteddfods, performance evenings and talent showcases. There is also an annual year-end production in which all students participate: A production for students by students to showcase their God-given talents. Our aim and vision is to create an environment which is inspirational, energetic, loving and accepting where each student can shine, to become the leading Performing Arts centre in South Africa.

The brain goes through a crucial development period in the first 10 years of life. This period has a long-lasting influence on a child’s future interests. Enrolling children in physical activity programs that are fun, inclusive, educational, and appropriate for their age and skill level, helps ensure early positive exposure to physical activity and increases their likelihood of staying active throughout their life. In order to create a more active generation, opportunities to be active need to be available everywhere. It takes schools that integrate physical education into the curriculum, cities that provide an environment for movement, passionate individuals with the desire to mentor, and role models who create change.

In life, public speaking is one of those skills without borders when it comes to type of industry, yet so many young people are uncomfortable to speak in a group setting or in front of an audience, no matter the size. Our collaborative classes go a long way to developing confidence and comfort to speak in front of others, however; considered a relevant and needed Professional Skill, as a BenHalian, not only will you learn the skills to know what to say, but also the confidence to use your voice in a way that dynamically engages with any audience to effectively deliver your message. Learn the art of communicating successfully to find freedom in using your voice to communicate effectively.
