High School pupils are encouraged to make appointments with teachers as they offer academic support to all subjects.

We are very excited as we have just launched:-

  • Enrichment for Mathematics for all grades using a computer based application program called Siyavula.
  • Lab-online for Grade 8 – Language enrichment for English and Afrikaans

Academic Clubs:-

  • Science Club
  • Technology Club

Preparatory 

At Pecanwood College we aim to enrich all our children by ensuring we cover Core Skills in our everyday teaching.  These include:

 

Thinking Skills

Research Skills

Communication Skills

Social Skills

Self-Management skills

 

Every child is given the opportunity to participate in learning that includes these skills to be sure they are, as our motto says, Prepared for Life.

Across the prep school classes is a collaborated project that encompasses all learning areas and a variety of skills and concepts. This allows children to work in a small group setting and complete investigations that are purely driven by themselves and their curiosity.

Our teachers are fully on board and have received Core Skills as well as Kagan’s training to ensure we help each child reach their maximum potential in all areas.

At Pecanwood we recognise the achievements of our top academics.  Each term the top 5 children in each class receive an academics badge and for that term are part of our enrichment program.  This program is run by the Head of Academics and various activities are set up to challenge these children.

 

Academic Support 

Pupil’s experiencing learning difficulties at the school will benefit from the favourable teacher/pupil ratio, as well as our Academic Support programme.  Academic Support and Remedial headed by Mrs Nadia Prinsloo.

Mrs Prinsloo currently runs 3 academic support sessions per week in school time as well as a remedial practice after school. The College has on-site, independent service providers from various fields, who work in conjunction with the class teachers to provide further academic support.
