We are experiencing a pandemic that will change our lives forever. We are resilient. We adapt. We cover our faces. We follow the rules. We sit apart and are separated by perspex – at least we can see each other!

The Grade 12 IT students are counting the days till their final exams. Studying SQL for a School Based Assessment task – they have to write four such tasks to make up their year mark. The prelims offer another opportunity to improve their year marks.

The final component towards the year mark is the PAT – Practical Assessment Task. There are four phases to the PAT. The Gr 12 students completed their planning in phase 2 during lock-down level 5. They have to create a scenario with a solution that show cases their knowledge. Marks are awarded according to the IEB marking guidelines. I am looking forward to the phase 3 component – programming the solution.
