School Academic Subjects
The Way Christian School offers the CAPS Curriculum and works closely with the Gauteng Education Department to ensure that your children receive an education that will open doors for them anywhere in the country.
The educators are very involved in advising and assisting them to choose subjects that will enable them to obtain an excellent pass in the Senior Certificate Examinations so that they can continue their studies at any College or University in the country.
Our aim is to ensure that they achieve the best results possible in line with their own unique abilities.
We offer 6 subjects in the Intermediate Phase as well as 9 subjects in the Senior Phase as specified by the Education Department.
English, Mathematics, Physical Science, Business Studies and Economics are given emphasis as we realise that these subjects open many avenues to careers. At the same time, we realise that some learners are gifted in a more creative way, so Visual Arts is also offered as a subject in the FET phase.
Accounting, Life Sciences, Geography, History and Computer Applications Technology round off the subjects on offer so that all avenues are covered.
On the more physical and creative front, we offer the learners soccer, netball and boot camp. All learners love the fun interschool athletics at the beginning of the year.
For the more intellectual: chess is on offer and for the creative: knitting and sewing classes.
Drama enthusiasts can join the Glee Club and participate in the school concert.
We also place emphasis on Academics by offering free extra lessons in English, Mathematics and Afrikaans as well as any other subjects where the learner may be having difficulty.
Our school is based on forming future leaders who will have Christian values and live out their lives as examples of Christianity in their workplace and in their communities. To do this, we have Bible Clubs for each of the separate phases so that they can learn about their faith at a level appropriate to their age.
In order to ease new learners into the school and to teach them our ethos and values as well as to develop good relationships and interaction between our learners we take the High School, Grade 8 and Grade 6 learners on camps.
Our parents are also involved and all are invited to join the Parent’s Forum.
