DIEC has since January 2019 embarked on a growth plan for DIEC which includes physical spatial expansion and re-organisation, and an approach to education methods (pedagogy) that talks strictly to the future of schooling and education, using developments in technology and the resultant need to review and amend the approach to face to face teaching methods.
Expansion plans were to some extent stunted by COVID 19 from March 2020, but at DIEC we reorganised our approach to minimise the impact on the academic process, whilst at the same time observing social responsibility and risk management protocols
Our Learners are adjusting well to new learning platforms, despite the pandemic.
It is imperative for the future of our children, and South Africa, that Education moves on such that it provides maximum value to both.
Children must be taught not only the basics of language, maths, classics and science, but how to develop and maximise their potential as individuals, that they might realise full benefit to themselves and their community.
DIEC recognises this, and our approach is ever evolving to meet this challenge.
In keeping with a sense of continuity of the vision we are proud to say that Mrs D Broderick remains Executive Head of DIEC to this date.
