TYGER VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL ( 7-12)

We are excited about the following developments that will be coming to Tyger Valley College in the near future.

Go-Lab

We are in the process of keeping our IEB based academic offering up to date with the latest technology. As part of this process we are installing a Go-Lab in the high school early next year. The lab will be located in two adjacent classrooms in the heart of the high school. These classrooms will be remodelled and kitted out with state of the art Go-Lab equipment, which will include laser cutters and 3D printers. I have attached a link to the Go-Lab site for further information http://golab.co.za/. We will be doing a proper launch of the Go-Lab as soon as it has been installed, but here are a few more links to give an idea of things to come and to get everyone excited:

Go-Lab will not only be incorporated into the teaching day but will also be run as a club in the afternoons.

Archery

We will be introducing Archery as an extra-mural activity next year. We hope to build the archery range early next year so that we can get our budding “Robin Hoods” out on the range as soon as possible.

Astro Turf

Another development, which is already in the beginning phases of construction, is an Astro Turf to the east of the school property. The area has been levelled and prepared, ready for the introduction of an astro in the future. I will have clear information on a date for the installation of this facility by the end of this year.

Top Dog

We are also very excited to announce that we will be piloting a project next year with the company Top Dog (Foresight) with a view to improving our academic offering. Top Dog will give internet based access to pupils, parents and teachers on matters such as test and exam results as well as extra lesson intervention steps. It will allow the parties registered on the programme to log-on at any time so as to access the latest information on pupil progress (no more tests to be signed!)

Strength & Conditioning Area

Lastly, with a view to improving our sporting successes, we are drafting plans for an outdoor strength and conditioning area. This large area will consist of a wet-pour rubber surface and gym equipment. The area will take advantage of our city’s very good weather and will allow our pupils to get healthy exercise out in the fresh air (we will ensure that the area is shaded so as to avoid sunburn and heat-fatigue).

Tyger Valley College is going to be a very exciting place to be in 2018. I am really looking forward to seeing more pupils getting more involved in more activities and truly living our motto of “Through Enjoyment to Excellence”.
