There is always a tendency among pupils to believe that certain subjects are ‘more fun’ and a ‘soft option’! Only later do they realise that both aptitude and hard work are required. We feel that while parents must not make their children’s choices for them, they must always act as a balancing, and perhaps sobering, influence on them.
A pupil will be required to choose no fewer than seven (7) subjects made up as follows:
Four Compulsory Subjects
– Home Language (English)
– First Additional Language (Zulu or Afrikaans)
– Core Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy
– Life Orientation
We have a well-developed Student Portal that we are always adding functionality to, to assist and support students in their learning. This is mainly used by the High School, as the focus starts to shift towards the students becoming more independent and responsible, in preparation for real life. This portal is full of information for the student, and is a landing place for finding links and information that they will find useful.
There is a section here called LMS, that allows subjects to post notes, activities and tasks for their students to be able to access from anywhere that they have an internet connection. We have had a number of parents wanting to see what is in this section, so we have now made a limited “view” of this inside the Parent Portal too. Some of the features available in the Student Portal are shown on the right.
The students are shown how to access the portal during school time, and use the same details to log in as they are given to log in to the school computers. The quick link on the left menu will take you straight to the Student Portal login page.
The address can also be saved in their device’s browser for quick access:
