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
