When we first opened our doors in 2010, we did so with a clear vision of creating innovative learning environments where students can prosper and develop their God given potential.
Over the past few years we have witnessed significant technological developments in the world around us, including in those spheres pertaining to education and learning.
As a school leadership team we have been keeping a close eye on those developments in education. After valuable conversation with various stake holders we have come to the decision to implement E-learning strategies across all grades from January 2018.
During the parents’ evening held in term 2 of this year, most parents and learners have already been informed of the advantages of E-Learning and the method of implementation GLA will follow. I would like to again give a short overview of the process up to date.
