Message from the Principal
As Principal, I have been instrumental in the management of the school and training of staff in their approach to their work with a high standard of excellence. Teachers are encouraged to treat each child as special thus ensuring personal care for each student.
Discipline is firm and is paramount in our school. Implementing strong leadership and focus on our teaching strategies means that our teachers become counsellor, supervisor and friend to the students. This inspires and motivates maximum learning and promotes respect for leadership. It would be almost impossible to teach children who have more rights given to them than the teachers do. There must be clear distinction of roles or the children have no boundaries, becoming disrespectful and both teaching and learning becomes almost impossible. This sends out the wrong message and causes the teacher/student relationship to regress rather than progress.
It is my hope that each student will benefit from their time spent at Tabernacle School and that they will find it both a fruitful and rewarding experience.
Message from Chairman
Making Dreams into Reality
“Tabernacle school strives to build and fortify students academically, spiritually, and physically. The goal is to develop a community of skilled leaders thoroughly exposed to biblical principles”.
As Chairman of Tabernacle school I take an active role in School assemblies where I re-enforce the focus of the students purpose in the school which is; to prepare for their future success. We teach scriptural references to the students to enable them to can apply to their lives. The students can use the Bible as a practical tool by making the teachings relevant to everyday living. One example is ‘love thy neighbour as thyself’, which teaches the students to treat others as they would like to be treated. The students are also pro-active in conducting assemblies themselves which enables them to develop public speaking skills and self-confidence. As the moral and spiritual standards decline in society we need to teach traditional values to our children if we are going to turn back the tide of chaos in our schools. Political correctness has gone mad and has eroded truth so our children are left in a situation of confusion as to what is right and wrong. It is essential that we invest the best that we have in our children as their future rests in our hands. I firmly believe that the students at Tabernacle School have the potential to be the leaders of tomorrow.
