Grade 9 Subject Choice


The Grade 9 learners recently had their subject choice meeting, where they were briefed by the Deputy Principal (Academics), Mrs. Elixer and also by a representative of the University of the Western Cape, on how to choose subjects wisely, catering to the strengths of each individual. They were also challenged as to the new Departmental requirements of CAPS and its pass requirements.

For further information on CAPS and other related documentation, please feel free to visit the Department of Basic Education website: or the Western Cape Education Department website:

Learners were also given documentation supplied by the WCED. These and other related documentation as well as the WCED’s ‘Tips for Success’ booklet can be found at the following link:

Subject choice can be a very demanding, pressurizing and confusing matter for learners. At Rhodes High School, we have taken the time and effort to streamline the Choice Document, so as to make it somewhat easier on our learners. Please feel free to download the document here: Subject Choice Form 2015


We wish all our Grade 9’s well as they embark on this new journey of focused learning. We  also wish them well as they prepare for the final examinations which begin shortly.
