Welcome to Year 1 - Shorashim (Roots)

Shorashim (Roots)

Children firmly put down their roots in the school community. They start to thrive and become an established group of children moving confidently together through the school based on their solid early learning foundations.

Class names at Eden Primary relate to the theme of the Garden of Eden or Gan Eden in the story of creation told in the first book of the bible, Bereishit/Genesis after which the school is named.

God made all kinds of trees that were pleasing to the eye in a garden or paradise that was beautiful and diverse. Trees, like our pupils, grow and blossom in a rich and fertile place that is harmonious and happy.

Our class names represent the growth of a tree or of each cohort or of each individual child at Eden. This is also linked to our commitment to learn about and care for nature and the environment…the significance and importance of an orchard where seeds are nurtured and flourish growing into fully grown, varied and productive trees.
