Welcome to Greenwood Primary School

Greenwood Primary School is a unique learning facility in the friendly city of Port Elizabeth which caters for learners from pre-primary to grade 7. It is conveniently situated in the centre of the city, directly opposite the historical St George’s Park Cricket Grounds.

The school caters for 860 learners who are taught by 55 vibrant staff members. Together they make up the Greenwood family. Being a fully inclusive school, Greenwood Primary School also caters for children with learning disabilities and those who are hard of hearing.

The school offers a caring, nurturing environment which aims to foster an attitude of unity and community in its learners while maintaining a standard of excellence in academic, cultural and sporting activities.

It is said that “it takes a village to raise a child”. At Greenwood Primary School, it is understood that to truly cater to the holistic development of each learner, the broader community and family of the child must be involved. The school strives to foster good relationships and open communication with all stakeholders so that everyone feels like a valuable part of the “Greenwood family tree.”

Greenwood Primary School Pillars

A strong focus on academics is one of the most fundamental pillars of a quality school experience.

“Mainstream” academic education refers to the Department of Education’s CAPS academic programme which is followed by the majority of learners at Greenwood Primary School.

Greenwood Primary School’s Learners with Special Education Needs (LSEN) section includes a Partially Hearing Unit which follows the mainstream curriculum.

The department is staffed by specially trained teachers from pre-primary level to grade 7.

The section also employs a full time speech therapist/audiologist.

Greenwood Primary School places a strong emphasis on cultural activities, and has fostered a strong tradition of excellence in its music and drama departments

Most notably, all of the school’s drama productions since 1996 have been nominated for, and have won, a number of The Herald Showtime Awards.

Sport at Greenwood Primary School plays an important role in the learners’ lives.

Pupils are encouraged to participate in at least one summer, and one winter sport.

The school prides itself in catering for individuals at every level of ability.
