The inception of the project coincided with the introduction of CAPS. This Curriculum came with a host of problems for both the pupil and the educator notably in the new topics namely: Probability, Euclidean Geometry and Bivariate Data where upon teachers had gaps which needed continual developments.
It quite exciting for us to have started this project in the first term, this will offer us an opportunity to groom the learners from start to finish. We will be offering them extra weekday classes, Saturday classes, holiday classes and providing them with study materials. These methods will improve their Maths and Science and help them pass exceptionally well, score themselves university entrance and obtain study bursaries.
