We still have a dream team.

Our department consists of seventeen creative, organized, enthusiastic, passionate and compassionate staff members. We have seven Afrikaans and seven English educators as well as two French educators. We have youth and we have experience – we have it all!

Since the inception of our school we haven’t had a single failure in Grade 12!

This competent and talented team has been responsible for excellent Grade 12 results. Our learners have loads of distinctions which is the result of subject expertise and an ability to adapt in an ever-changing educational system.

We are the lucky educators who can experience the diverse temperaments and talents of our learners. In our classes we provide an open, warm climate where learners can construct their knowledge and express joys, sorrows and opinions.

It is through insight in literature that the learners are helped to find meaning in life and celebrate their individuality.

The methods, setworks and assignments we incorporate in our classes have been selected to help our students to become independent and creative thinkers.

We enjoy our work and we are simply the best!

Description of learning area

Life Orientation is the study of the self in relation to others and to society. It is concerned with the personal, social, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, motor and physical growth and development of learners. Life Orientation guides and prepares learners for life, and for its responsibilities and possibilities. This subject addresses knowledge, values, attitudes and skills about the self, the environment, responsible citizenship, a healthy and productive life, social engagement, recreation and physical activity, and career choices. It equips learners to solve problems, to make informed decisions and choices, and to take appropriate actions to enable them to live meaningfully and successfully in a rapidly-changing society.

Recreation and physical activity

Knowledge of healthy practices and nutrition, participation in games, sport, recreational and leisure time activities, and an understanding of the relationship between health, physical activities and the environment can improve the quality of life and the well-being of all learners.

Careers and career choices
