At ECA we aim to provide a curriculum to develop inquisitive,
independent thinkers with a love for learning.
We understand that the curriculum, both within taught lessons and beyond them,
should create an environment where questioning,
divergent thinking and the freedom to learn from mistakes are all encouraged.
We intend that our curriculum should instil in our learners these qualities: responsibility,
independence and a sense that learning can excite and invigorate throughout life.
In order to achieve this, at ECA we teach the CAPS curriculum as set out by the GDE in an IEB manner.
In other words, while teaching all the elements of the CAPS curriculum as stipulated, we continually encourage the learners to think for themselves,
drawing out knowledge from within the learners, instead of just endlessly presenting the learners with facts.
English is offered as the Home Language and Afrikaans as the First Additional Language.
Each grade in this phase has two classes with 24 learners in each. Each grade is taught by a qualified, born-again teacher. Each grade also has an assistant teacher, who is born-again and passionate about education and children.
The class size allows the teacher to not only have one on one interaction with the learners, but also to understand the learning style and needs of each learner.
Each grade in this phase will have two classes with 24 learners in each. Each class is taught by a qualified, born-again teacher.
In Grade 7 we expect learners to be more independent and so they no longer require an assistant teacher.
Each grade (4 to 6) also has an assistant teacher, who is born-again and passionate about education and children.
