Differentiated Approach to Enhanced CAPS + PBL + IEB = FUTURE-PROOF
Primary – High School:
Project-Based Learning Model
We teach the national CAPS curriculum that is integrated with Project-Based Learning from primary school level. We implement Project-Based Learning (PBL) from primary school right through to Grade 12.
In Project Based Learning, the project is the vehicle for teaching the important knowledge and skills that a student need to learn. The project contains and frames the curriculum and instruction.
PBL requires critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and various forms of communication. To answer a Driving Question and create high-quality work, students need to do much more than remember information. They need to use higher-order thinking skills and learn to work as a team.
To help ensure our students are getting the main course and are engaging in quality Project Based Learning, We promote a research-based model for the students to learn how to question, investigate and/or design and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem and/or challenge.
IEB National Senior Certificate
Our students will write the Independent Examination Board (IEB) examinations in Grade 12. The IEB seeks to advance quality teaching and learning in South Africa through an assessment process of integrity, innovation and international comparability. All schools registered with the IEB to write the National Senior Certificate have access to a range of professional development opportunities as well as a variety of assessments, designed to serve a range of purposes.
The IEB produces consistent, reliable results in the Grade 12 National Senior Certificate with an average pass rate between 97% and 98%.
Furthermore the IEB achieves between 78% and 80% pass with entry to degree study.
