H.A. Jack Primary is a Section 21 school and carry out learning through the CAPS Curriculum. CAPS being the Curriculum and Assessment Policy statement, has been adjusted to aid students with knowledge, skills and values worth learning in South African schools. This curriculum aims to ensure that children acquire and apply knowledge and skills in ways that are meaningful to their own lives. The curriculum promotes knowledge in local contexts, taking global interaction into consideration.

We believe the curriculum is structured to allow a steady progression into the syllabus at each level and guide our learners in career development and shape their futures.
