The Life Orientation Learning Area develops skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that empower learners to make informed decisions and take appropriate actions
The Life Orientation Learning Area aims to guide and equip learners for meaningful and successful living in a rapidly changing and transforming society. The focus therefore is on the development of self-in-society.
Learners must find a place for themselves in a world increasingly different from that in which their parents lived.
They should be able to develop a sense of confidence and competence in order to live well and contribute productively to shaping of a new society.
