It was Thomas Edison who said that “genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”. Academic success is not realised overnight; it generally requires hours of concentrated effort, and sustained focus. Whilst our educators cannot do the work for pupils, we are dedicated to supporting all our pupils to develop a culture of academic success at Beaulieu College.
For this reason, we offer support lessons for all subjects in the mornings and afternoon, dependent on the availability of our staff. These lessons serve two purposes:
(i) to assist pupils who struggle to grasp a particular section of work
(ii) for those who need extension.
Days and times of support lessons in each subject are published on the College’s intranet (https://intranet.beaulieucollege.co.za/wiki/Academic_Support_Programme).
Addressing problems timeously, before they cause further distress, is sensible. We urge our pupils to take advantage of these value-added lessons for which there is no extra charge. Pupils who attend ASP, work in a directed fashion and improve on their results.
"Hard work throws the spotlight on the character of people - some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses and some don't turn up at all" - Sam Ewing
In addition to our ASP, the college uses ADAM (Academic Data Administration Management), to record and track pupil performance. The system enables pupils to log in to view their assessment results. Parents are also given access to the system from any location. This promotes transparency and allows parents and pupils to track their academic progress with the intention of uncovering problem areas earlier.
