Ad Astra To The Stars
Orion Primary School
Orion College Primary School caters to learners from Grade R to Grade 6 who have mild to moderate barriers to learning and who require remedial assistance with their learning.
There are 3 streams at Orion catering to learners with a wide range of ability:
- The Remedial Stream – for learners with the ability to access the CAPS curriculum at Grade level, but who benefit from the smaller class environment and skilled staff.
- The Pre-Vocational Stream- for learners who require a more differentiated curriculum and who may not be working at grade level in all subjects.
- The Skills Stream – for learners who have greater academic challenges and who learn best through a practical approach to learning and project based work.
All therapies are provided on a needs basis, meaning that each learner will have a slightly different package of support depending on their particular needs.
Orion High School
Offers remedial teaching with assistance in the following Phases in the High School:
Academic Phases: Senior Phase: Grade 7 – 9 & FET Phase: Grade 10 – 12
Vocational Phases: Pre Vocational: Grade 7 to 9 level, Vocational phase Level 2 and 3: National Certificate: Information Technology: End user Computing (NQF level 3), Level 4: National Certificate: Information Technology: Technical Support (NQF level 4)
Skills Phase: Junior Skills: 13 – 15 years, Senior Skills: 16 – 18 years
To educate and guide learners to realise their full potential by providing a comprehensive, individually-orientated education. To create an environment of opportunity where pupils are inspired to become responsible and able citizens of the world. To help people accept and understand that all actions have consequences and that they must take responsibility for their actions. To provide opportunities to develop the right attitudes, knowledge and skills. To develop clear values. To encourage children to embrace life as a joyful challenge, to take every moment of every day and to live it to the best of their abilities.
We practice Invitational Education, where we believe that all children are valuable, responsible, able and should be treated as such. The children are invited to participate in an educational environment that is stimulating and vibrant.
All children not achieving their full potential are accommodated, whether it is because of:
• Learning difficulties
• Emotional trauma
• The need for a more nurturing environment

Vocational & Pre-Vocational Stream
The curriculum as well as the learning environment is adapted and differentiated to meet each individual’s particular needs.
Learners in the Skills Stream have an Individual Education Plan which personalizes their learning opportunities.
