Media Centres


Atholton prides itself in having two well stocked Media Centres - a Junior Primary Centre that caters for the Pre-Primary and Junior Primary phase and the Senior Primary for the Grade 4 - 7 pupils.


Each class has the opportunity to visit its respective Media Centre once a week for a lesson on Book Education which includes the teaching of Research skills and the use of the Centre in general.


Reading is greatly encouraged with the children being allowed to borrow books as frequently as they wish. The Centre opens early before school and closes an hour after the school day. The Media Centres' Display Boards exhibit selected artwork and the term's themes of selected grades. This creates a welcoming, relaxed but organised environment for the use of all our pupils.
