Furthermore, Grade 8 and 9 learners must choose between the following two subjects which will be added to the compulsory subjects:

   9. Computer Application Technology or Hospitality Studies

 

Choice Subjects:

In addition to the 9 compulsory subjects, another two Art choice subjects must be selected in Grade 8 and 9 in order to be promoted to the senior phase.  These two subjects will be indicated as FIRST CHOICE and SECOND CHOICE. Both first and second choice must be taken as subjects in Grade 8 and 9.  The aim of this is to expose the learner to more than one Art discipline in order to make an informed decision in Grade 10 on which of the two disciplines to specialize in.  A learner must choose two of the following Art subjects:

1.  Dance Studies

2.  Dramatic Arts

3.  Music

4.  Visual Art or Design (Take note that a learner may not choose these two subjects together as choice 1 and choice 2, since they fall within the same group.  A learner must choose either Visual Art OR Design)
