Message from Principal Joseph Beer

“Education is not preparation for life education is life itself”

Welcome to Yeshiva College Primary School – The Primary School of Torah & General Studies excellence.  It is with the above quote in mind that Yeshiva College Primary sets out to prepare our learners for what life has to offer.  This takes place through Torah and Halacha, its teachings, values, customs, morals and laws combined with a solid foundation on worldly knowledge through our extensive General Studies syllabus.

As we prepare the children for our future focus is given to social and emotional functioning and general human interaction.  21st Century skills in the way of IT and digital knowledge is transported to the learners thus preparing then for an active future ahead.

Our Primary School is a warm and friendly environment in which we strive for each child to reach his/her fullest potential.  Each child is loved and nurtured and is treated as a whole being.

One can write many documents and policies that can describe what our Primary School is about, however, one needs to spend just one day here and I have no doubt that the “Neshama” – “sole” of the school will be witnessed and understood.

Our team of devoted, educated and highly caring staff are the backbone in ensuring that we achieve the goal of “true education” all round.

Feel free to make an appointment via my PA at any time to discuss any matters that may concern you.

Kind regards,

Joseph Beer
