INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR PHASE

We believe that our learners are unique and that every learner can learn – although not always in the same manner or in the same time.

The National Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) prescribes the content which must be taught, but it is up to our teachers to plan how they will teach it to their learners.  Our teachers use varied approaches to provide multiple learning options for receiving and processing information, through different media.

We serve the purpose of equipping learners, irrespective of their social-economic background, race or gender, with knowledge, skills and values necessary for self-fulfilment and meaningful participation in society as citizens. 

NO HOMEWORK POLICY

In 2020 we implemented a No Homework Policy. This decision was not made lightly. In order to amke this feasible, the school adapted the daily academic programme and presentation. This programme is structured in such a manner that it was no longer necessary to give homework. “Homework” is completed at school, under the supervision of the class teacher. We had to first prepare the initial groundwork and adapt our classrooms and classroom practice, BEFORE we could approach homework in a different light.

“Homework” is valuable where positive interaction between a learner and a parent takes place. We are convinced that the structure of our classrooms and teaching methods have been adapted to such a degree, that it allows more time during the school day to give attention to that which would normally be given as homework.

Our Language Approach
Learners are taught in their Home Language – (Afrikaans/English). It is important for learners to acquire the competence in at least two languages. Home Languages must be maintained and developed, while our learners must be able to communicate, read, write, think and reason in the Additional Language (Afrikaans/English).

The following aspects are important:

  • A text based approach (Response to text).
  • Process writing (creative, functional, transactive writing).
  • Reading strategies.
  • Reading, writing and communicating in the Additional Language.
  • Communication (spoken language). 

Our Approach to Mathematics
A critical awareness of how mathematical relationships are used in social, environmental, cultural and economic relations. To foster a spirit of curiosity and a love for Mathematics.

Life Skills Approach

This subject encourages our learners to acquire and practice life skills which will assist them in becoming independent and effective in responding to life’s challenges and to play an active and responsible role in society.

We also incorporate a CYBER WELLNESS PROGRAMME  in our Life Skills Programme.

Assessments
We would like to move from an overload of formal assessment to self-assessment. Learner should learn to evaluate their work to move from: “I can’t do it” to “I can’t do it YET!”

We have school policies for effective class organisation:

  • Our learners complete tasks throughout the year.
  • Certain activities will not require prior preparation by learners.
  • Our learners receive enough time from the educators where preparation is required.
  • Examination dates may differ by a few days and are subject to changes. This is in accordance with requirements received from the WCED throughout the year.
  • It remains the school’s prerogative to revise dates and to make the necessary changes if deemed necessary.
