NationalCurriculum and Assessment Policy Statement

Grades R-12

CAPS Info day, 20 May 2011

slide4

Introduction:

To change or not to change: That is not the question.

The decisions have been made, the changes have been proclaimed, but not yet gazetted and the documents still have to be printed.

slide5

The Question is:

What are we going to do with the changes? We know that any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by possible drawbacks and discomforts, but we also know that change brings opportunity.

slide6

However I would urge you, if we/you really don’t understand, then, maybe …

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”(Alan Watts).
