Kultuur... 

Buiten die gewone kultuuraktiwiteite soos Redenaars, skaak, Eisteddfod, ACSV, ens., bied Zoetendal Akademie elke jaar 'n skoolkonsert aan wat ons self skryf en waaraan al die leerders deelneem. Elke leerder van 3 tot 13 jaar praat in die konsert.

Nog 'n hoogtepunt op ons kultuurkalender is die opvoedkundige skooltoer waarop al ons Gr. 1-7 leerders gaan. Ons het al die hele Wes-Kaap deurkruis. Hierdie toer is nie net van opvoedkundige waarde nie, maar dra ook in 'n groot mate by tot ons kinders se emosionele en sosiale ontwikkeling.

Culture...

Apart from the usual cutural activities such as Orators, chess, Eisteddfod, ACSV, etc. Zoetendal Academy also host a school concert each year which is written by ourselves and where learners take part. Each learner from 3 to 13 years talks in the concert.

Another highlight on our cultural calender the educational school tour where we take all our Gr. 1-7 learners. We have travelled the whole of the Western Cape. This tour is not just of educational value, but contributes greatly to the emotional and social development of our learners.

Sport...

Alhoewel ons nie al die fasiliteite het wat ons graag sou wou hê nie, bied ons al die sportsoorte wat meeste skole aanbied, maar by ons val die klem op oefening en pret en om 'n sportsoort se basiese vaardighede aan te leer. Ons neem deel aan Kleinskole sportdae waar kleiner skole saamkom sonder om te kompeterend te wees.

Zoetendal Akademie is uniek met die aanbieding van 'n Driekamp, waar ons deur die getypoel swem, deur die dorp fietsry en langs die see draf. Ons bied eers 'n intieme kleursport driekamp aan waar twee kleurspanne teen mekaar meeding en dan ook 'n Interskole driekamp waar ander skole in ons omgewing kom deelneem.

Mees Suidelike Pretdraf in Afrika:

Zoetendal Akademie bied jaarliks in September die mees suidelike pretdraf in Afrika aan. Dit is 'n 5km pretdraf vanaf die skool, verby die vuurtoring, al langs die see tot net anderkant die mees suidelike punt van Afrika en terug skool toe. Wat 'n pragtige roete! Ons beplan om ook in die toekoms 'n 12km pretdraf aan te bied tot in Suiderstrand en terug wat 'n goeie oefenlopie sal wees vir deelnemers aan die Voet van Afrika marathon wat in die Bredasdorp-omgewing gedurende Oktober plaasvind.

Sport...

Although we do not have all the facilities we would like to have, we offer all sports that most other schools offer, but we focus on exercise and fun and to teach the basic skills of a sport. We take part in small school sports days where smaller schools come together to compete.

Zoetendal Academy is unique in the presentation of a triathlon where we swim in the tidal pool, cycle through town and jog on the beach. We host an intimate colour sport three camp where two colour teams compete against each other. Zoetendal Academy also hosts an Interschools triathlon where other schools from the area come to take part.

Most Southern Fun Run in Africa:

Zoetendal Academy hosts a Most Southern Fun Run in September each year. It is a 5km fun run starting at the school, past the lighthouse, along the beach until just on the other side of the most southern tip of Africa and back to the school. What a spectacular route! We also plan to host a 12km fun run in the future to Suiderstrand and back which will be a great practice run for participants of the 'Voet van Afrika' marathon which take place in the Bredasdorp region during October each year.

Geen opvoeder mag gedurende skooltyd by 'n klas besoek word nie. Dit is egter belangrik dat ouers die vrymoedigheid sal hê om met die kantoor te skakel, aangesien ons glo in aktiewe ouerbetrokkenheid.

Ouers is welkom by die skool en word aangemoedig om geleenthede by die skool te ondersteun. U teenwoordigheid by sosiale funksies en sportaangeleenthede sal waardeer word.
