Subjects offered in Grade 10-12

The St Mary’s DSG timetable consists of 7 Keys. Applying the NSC requirements, it is compulsory for pupils to study English in Key 1, a choice of Afrikaans, Sepedi, IsiZulu or Immigrant French in Key 2, a choice of Mathematics and Mathematical Literacy in Key 3 and Life Orientation in Key 4.

Pupils then choose one subject from each of the remaining keys (Key 5, 6 and 7). Keys are determined within the constraints of time, the timetable and the staffing capacity. We attempt to offer a wide variety of possible subject combinations. The more specialised subjects with smaller numbers such as Music are sometimes allocated to a different key from year to year to accommodate the choice selection of the specific year group. It is, however, not possible to entertain combinations other than those mentioned below:

Subject keys Grade 10 -12

Advanced Programme English lessons are scheduled in the afternoons. In Mathematics, the pupils are streamed and one of the classes is scheduled to be an Advanced Programme Mathematics class that runs at a faster pace during themorning timetable. Additional lessons are scheduled in the afternoons, evenings and selected weekends.

Subject choice assessments and recommendations
These are organized by the Health and Wellness Centre, with the help of a private psychologist who specialises in Subject and Career Counselling. It is usually done in April/May of the Grade 9 year.
