The Midrand Campus

Our Midrand Primary School campus is truly a joyful campus – a place where children are happy and reaching their potential. The happy buzz of the school reflects the collaboration and interactive learning that takes place inside and outside of the classrooms. Our teachers and apprentice teachers care deeply about our students, forming warm and trusting relationships with the children in their care. The joy of learning is evident in our students’ engagement with classroom activities. Singapore Maths, our mathematics curriculum, stretches our students, building concepts and skills. 

Every Friday our young ones participate in Exploration Day. A day dedicated to students exploring what they have learned from different perspectives. Students get involved in the arts, sciences, coding and robotics – all skills necessary for the 21st Century. As you walk into the campus, you will notice how the walls inside the building are adorned in the artwork and writing of our students – work they are so proud of. Midrand is a campus alive with possibilities.

I think the the community meetings the children have are fantastic. We as a family believe firmly that community awareness and community responsibility is one of the core fundamentals in society. Without a strong community, society in itself will fold. Therefore, the fact that Nova Pioneer encourages our children to be responsible and caring and giving, is probably the MOST noteworthy experience.

Grant Son, Nova Pioneer Parent

We decided on Nova Pioneer because we loved the concept of the enquiry-based learning as well as how the school is so committed to nurturing children into becoming young adults who think rigorously about the future of the world. My daughter has grown by leaps and bounds during her tenure at Nova Pioneer. She is very innovative and has become a go-getter which makes me so proud. Nova Pioneer is a great school.

Joco Solomons, Nova Pioneer Parent

The small classroom sizes was what initially drew us to Nova Pioneer. The idea of our child receiving individual attention was an attractive offering. We have enjoyed the Friday Exploration day feedback sessions where parents get to interact with the students and get an understanding of what they do during the sessions and what they have learned throughout the term. The Nova Pioneer learning approached has had a positive influence on my child's curiosity, always questioning and trying to understand life skills.
