THE NORTHERN Cape Department of Education has identified approximately 9,300 Grade 12 learners who are currently undergoing a “rigorous” Spring School Support Programme to better understand their subject content in preparation for the 2022 National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination.

The Spring School Support Programmes will run up until October 10, while the matric exams are scheduled to commence on October 31.

The subjects offered during the school support programme are: Geography, Afrikaans Home Language, Setswana Home Language, Agricultural Sciences, Business Studies, Economics, History, Life Sciences, Mathematical Literacy, Mathematics, History, Physical Sciences, Accounting, Technical Mathematics, Technical Sciences, Engineering, Graphics and Design (EGD) and Consumer Studies.

Department spokesperson Geoffrey van der Merwe lauded the programme for having proven to be of great assistance to pupils in the past and for “undoubtedly contributing to the success rate of Grade 12 learners in the Province”.

He said the spring school camps are being implemented as residential, school-based and walk-in centres, where a total of 46 centres are being utilised across all five districts in the Province.

“The main driver of the spring school camps is to consolidate high-value content and to ensure that learners enter the NSC examination without any content gaps. We have established dedicated centres for average-performing and top-achieving learners,” said Van der Merwe.

He added that all the facilitators and tutors are matric-level educators or subject specialists and have been involved in the various provincial examination processes, either as markers or examiners. “Because of their experience, they are able to help learners to prepare for their final examination and provide specific focus on problem areas.

“The department is confident that the Spring School Support Programme will contribute towards improving the 2022 National Senior Certificate examination pass rate in the Province.”

The department also appealed to the public to support the Class of 2022 as they prepare for the final exams of their school careers.
