Maragon Private Schools’ Mission Statement and Philosophy
Maragon’s philosophy is to produce mature, well-balanced young adults who possess a love for God and country, and are capable of prospering in the global village of tomorrow.
We prepare our pupils to compete in the twenty-first century by using state of the art educational technology to solve pressing issues of the future, utilising creativity and lateral thought.
Maragon’s educational strategy provides the vehicle that bridges the gaps in a pupil’s voyage of self-discovery while on their path to independent adulthood.
Maragon Private Schools introduced MaraMedia Interactive Digital Manuals in 2013. The Interactive Digital Manuals (IDMs) are loaded on a personal tablet and replace the need for expensive and heavy textbooks. Maramedia Interactive Digital Manuals are interactive, curriculum compliant software applications that are loaded onto Apple or Samsung tablets and are intended to replace hard copy manuals.
The tablets with IDMs are great learning tools and Maragon Private Schools follows a “blended learning approach”, combining digital media with the traditional written format. It is imperative that our pupils are provided not only with twenty-first century skills, but also with literacy and writing proficiency so vital in the world of effective communication.
Maragon’s holistic system is based on five pillars:
• High academic standards and achievements
• Competitive sports
• Cultural development
• Leadership training
• Community awareness
Maragon’s core values are:
• Knowing God
• Loving People
• Impacting the future
