Success Through excellence

Aspiring for academic and holistic excellence are the key cornerstones of life and this is what the Auckland Park Academy of Excellence sets out to achieve.

Sports & Extra Curricular Activities:

At APAX we believe that through sports many positive opportunities will be created for our learners. Sports participation will also enhance our learner’s school accomplishments. Sports teaches our children to function in a competitive society. We thus provide a programme that we feel will help create a balanced individual.
Our sports programme has two components: our internal programme and our extra cost programme.

Textbooks:

Each learner is issued with textbooks in the beginning of the academic year. The learner will be responsible for his or her own text books. In case of loss or damage, the learner will pay for replacing the item. All text books remain the property of the school and are to be returned at the end of the year.
