Academic matters

Our curriculum has two main components:
a general, formative academic program and a vocational (skills) training program – teaching time being divided 50:50 between these two components. The academic curriculum follows the guidelines of the National Curriculum Statement (NCS) and CAPS, although in an adapted form. The following learning areas are compulsory:
