Salisbury House - A year in review

Salisbury House - A year in Revue

It is difficult to believe that over a year has passed since Salisbury House opened its doors. Based in the leafy suburb of Kenilworth, Salisbury House Primary School is housed at the Temple Israel premises.

Looking back, we have celebrated many highlights in our short tenure, most of which have been student led.

Pesach Seder 2021

For our first major celebration we held an egalitarian seder at school. The children learnt songs, made all the dishes belonging to the seder plate and decorated the tables.

“The Friendship Quest” movie

Once we had settled in for the year, we got our creative juices flowing. The children made story boards of possible story lines and a script was put together with ideas from each child. The movie was filmed and we held a movie premiere where fancy dress was the order of the day and parents came to watch the masterpiece.

Sign Language

At Salisbury House we believe in inclusivity, in the true sense of the word. One of our students is deaf and another of the students requested sign language lessons. From here we worked sign language into our timetable and now have weekly lessons.

Drama Therapy

This year we have started drama lessons with Jessica Mayson. Jessica is an HPCSA-registered Drama Therapist based in Cape Town. Drama therapy is a form of psychological therapy that uses all the creative and performance arts to facilitate people moving towards psychological, emotional and social health. This ties in perfectly with our learning programme at Salisbury House and it is already a favourite part of the children’s week.

Along with many other exciting activities this year, we have made wine which will be ready for Pesach, adopted a beehive and already been on a few outings.
