A Word from the Principal
On behalf of Dayspring Study Centre, I welcome you to our website.
I hope you take some time to explore our website and find it both interesting and informative.
We have some useful information for parents and prospective parents.
It is important that we work together to give our children the best opportunity to become self-motivated
learners and productive citizens. Parents, teachers, support staff and administration all play an important
role in encouraging our children to become active learners. Through a collegial partnership with everyone
associated with Dayspring, I am confident that our students can continue to learn and grow!
At Dayspring we offer a positive and friendly environment to assist in improving academic excellence
of each individual. We also assist in developing the skills required for university and tertiary institutions.
As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any suggestions or concerns you might have.
Should you have any queries regarding our school please do not hesitate to contact us.

Students of about 14 years of age who have completed grade 7 are introduced to a wide range of subjects
in order to give them maximum flexibility of choice for their future direction. They sit Checkpoint
examinations in November, which are designed to ensure that students are on par with students of equivalent age
elsewhere in the world in the vital subjects of Mathematics, Science and English. It is recommended that students
take as many subjects as possible on Foundation Level in order to ensure a firm base for future study and to establish
their strongest subjects for IGCSE Level.
