IMPAK (Gr.R – Gr.12)
Impak has developed a leading-edge curriculum, in line with CAPS, for Grade R to Grade 12. Our curriculum is based on a distance-learning model, which enables individualised learning in the classroom and at home. This model allows teachers to focus on the individual learning styles and needs of learners in a class environment.
Learners will receive all the study material required to successfully complete a subject, including the following:
- A study guide for each subject, consisting of a set of lessons with study content, and including activities, tasks and exercises, and class tests.
- Prescribed literature for language subjects.
- DVDs to explain difficult concepts in certain subjects.
- Other lesson material where applicable, including learning aids, data CDs, additional study notes, flash cards, wall charts, etc.
