CBC strives on perfection and perseverance for it's name. It cares more about the school's 'good' reputation. There are numerous accounts of bullying where teachers and headmasters where informed of yet the school sat back and did nothing. The bullying forms in groups of girls who pick on any other girl/s that do not add up to their standards. CBC is and has proven to hold racist known students, but are left to carry on damaging other kids around them. This is mainly in the High School. This has been going on for years and it is with the same students and yet again CBC knows of these incidents, but does nothing as they are scared it will effect it's high reputation. Students 'gang' up on others saying revolting words and phrases. Racist and just plain cruel. CBC is known as caring. Caring for it's name not for their students they sworn to protect and care under their supervision. These issues are mainly situated in the High School. Older girls pick on younger ones. Calling them sluts and whores. I was only 13 at the time one of these incidents first occurred. I was walking with my friends and did not see a matric girl walking towards me she pushed her shoulder into me, with a reflex I pushed back mainly, because I had received a fright. She told me to watch it. I was walking in a rather large foyer. The same year a girl told her friend that she wanted to bash my face with a brick. I was 14. CBC failed me as a student. I no longer am in this school and I have grown happier, but still hurt over a lot of the incidents and pain they have caused me in just 2 years.
Wonderful loving environment where a child is paid attention to; and seen as a little person not a number. Teachers make an effort to learn your child's name even if they are not in their class. It is like having an extended family.
CBC St John's is an amazing school, it brings family, diversity, excellent education, love and care in one complete package. Your child is not a number but recognized as person. Your child's talents receives recognition be it academically, drama or on the sports field. My child started CBC in Grade 0 and is currently in grade 7. She is a well balanced individual, independent and her primary school life has been a journey of achievements and happiness. The foundation she has received at CBC is based on good Christian values and includes an excellent level of education. The values she has gained has been an amazing journey. Entered as a learner and will leave as a leader. CBC is so unique and the love and care from educators in assisting us as parents to raise incredible young ambassadors is a rare find.
