Dear Grade Eight Parent – 2020
SUBJECT CHOICE – GRADE EIGHT 2020
Thank you for confirming your daughter’s place at Collegiate in 2019 by acknowledging her acceptance and paying the deposit. We look forward to welcoming your daughter into the school next year.
In Grade Eight, the girls have three choices to make regarding subjects:
- In Grades Eight and Nine, one of the compulsory subjects is Creative Arts. Within this subject, there are four creative disciplines, of which each learner must choose two. Collegiate offers three of the disciplines and your daughter must choose any two of these three. However, there are criteria to be met in order to be accepted into the Music discipline. These are detailed on the subject choice form.
- Apart from English Home Language, your daughter must study a second language on First Additional Level. At Collegiate, the choice is between Afrikaans First Additional Language and isiXhosa on First Additional Level. The criteria are detailed on the subject choice form attached.
- In addition to the compulsory curriculum, your daughter must study a third language on Second Additional level at Collegiate. The choice is between French Second Additional Language and isiXhosa Second Additional Language.
Music as a subject will be taught as part of the Creative Arts programme. Owing to limited facilities, availability of teaching staff and the necessity for individual lessons, the number of Grade Eight music students that can be accommodated will be limited. As such, the admissions requirements are as follows:
Piano, violin, viola, cello (up to Grade 4), trumpet, french horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, flute, voice, clarinet, bass clarinet, soprano/alto/tenor/ baritone saxophone and percussion.
Please complete the below subject choice form by no later than FRIDAY, 4th October 2019. Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact Mrs Yvonne Smith on 041-373 7705.
