What does a day at The Foundation look like?
A school day generally looks like this: We start together in the Lunchroom with the 'Pledge', which reads as follows: “I will make God's Word a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I will hide God's Word in my heart, that I might not sin against God.” We start with a 'nugget', a short clear message from the Bible to encourage and inspire the students. This is provided by a student or by someone from the staff. We also pray together and sing our monthly song. During the opening, 'Congratulations Slips' will be handed out, which contain the results of tests taken and passed. The students then go to their Learning Center, where they work on their PACEs. The goals for the school day are listed on a Goal card. The Supervisor determines how many pages a student can do and the Monitor monitors the process throughout the day. While working through the pages, students encounter so-called 'Score strips'. These are moments where they check the work they have done themselves. Of course there are regular moments of relaxation, in the form of Breaks. We have a Fruit Break mid-morning. And between the Fruit Break and the Lunch Break there is a Stretch Break. During the Fruit Break and the Lunch Break the children go outside. The Stretch Break takes place in the Learning Center. Work in the PACEs stops at 1:45 PM, after which there is another Break, after which the students go to their Afternoon Class. The day ends with prayer at 3:00 PM.
