Spokesperson for the school Gaby Cohen said, “The new remedial school which will open in January 2018 will initially cater for Grade 1, 2 and 3 students and ultimately grow to Grade 7 in the future.”

The new school, which will be based at the Victory Park Campus, will have eight fully equipped classrooms, a state-of-the-art playground, offices and meeting rooms for staff and a therapy centre where the therapists can conduct their therapy and teaching sessions.

Under the leadership of principal Sally Ann Knowles and clinical director Genevieve Sandler, a full team of teachers, therapists and support staff have been employed.

Positions that have been filled include three remedially qualified teachers, two occupational therapists, one neuro-developmental treatment physiotherapist, two speech and language therapists and one remedial therapist.

The teachers will commence their employment in September 2017 for planning and development purposes.

Cohen added, “Student numbers are looking extremely positive for 2018 which reinforces and confirms the South African Board of Jewish Education’s (SABJE) decision to open a Jewish remedial school in Johannesburg.”
