Accounting

Accounting focuses on processing and communicating financial information. It deals with logical, systematic and accurate selection of recording financial information as well as analyzing and interpreting financial and managerial reports.

Accounting in the High School at Thomas More College AIMS

The subject of accounting develops the pupils’ knowledge, skills, values, attitudes and ability to make meaningful and informed personal and collaborative financial decisions in the economic and social environment.

SKILLS NEEDED
  • Pupils need to have a mathematical ability as Core Mathematics is now a requirement in order to study Accounting
  • Pupils will need to be able to work in a logical and systematic manner
  • Pupils need to work accurately, thoroughly and neatly
  • Problem solving skills

SKILLS LEARNED
  • Collect, record and analyse financial information
  • Present and communicate financial information
  • Relate the skills learned to real life situations
  • Organize and manage own finances and activities responsibly and effectively
  • Identify and solve problems in a logical manner

THE FUTURE

Pupils who have studied accounting at school will find bridging the gap to commerce subjects at tertiary institutions a lot less demanding. Extensive research has been done on pupils who have not studied accounting at school and it seems that they have a higher risk of dropping the courses as they are unable to cope with the demands. Such courses include B.Comm, B. Compt, Business Science etc. Accounting is a life skill that can be applied in any career path that one chooses.
