3. A tremendously successful Work Experience Programme for Grade 11and grade 9 learners allows them the opportunity to explore the world of work in a highly structured and monitored environment as part of their assessment in Life Orientation. The programs were resounding successes and our learners’ experiences of the world of work showed amazing initiative, commitment and pure enthusiasm.
