Curriculum

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

We regard both the academic and spiritual development of all human beings as a very crucial part of one’s development. For this reason it is compulsory for every student to attend religious instruction based on their religious persuasions. In order to accomplish this, the school has delegated the first period every Friday morning for religious education. During this period the following religious ministers are invited to conduct instructions.
• Catholic
• Pentecostal
• Adventist
• Methodist
• Open Bible

These groups accommodate students from form 1-3, students in forms 4 and 5 have religion as a study for the CXC examination There is also an organized bible club, where students can further advance their religious conviction. The school also invites local and foreign religious groups to visit the school to perform during the term. The school also stages a religious fest.

SUBJECT OPTIONS

Subjects stipulated by the Ministry of Education in conjunction with the school's curriculum will be followed. However, all students in forms 1 and 2 will be carrying the same number of Subjects, While, students in forms 3, 4, and 5 will have the choice of subjects based on their career path and subjects that they are excelling in.

CLASS ROOM ENVIRONMENT

The Boca Secondary School believes that the class room environment must be conducive to learning; it must serve as a stimulant to learning. For this reason, we believe that the blank wall syndrome must be replaced with educational facts that will lend itself to progressive learning. We believe this must be undertaken. by students, teachers and parents alike. Parental involvement is crucial. In addition, classes are acknowledged and rewarded for the following categories: most tidy, most educationally stimulating class be kept classroom, most orderly, most courteous class. These awards are presented at the end of the month. The classes would be observed and evaluated by a panel consisting of two teachers and one parent.

Points will be awarded based on the marking scheme organized by the panel. Please note that individual students as well as the entire class can be made to face the consequences for any infractions that lead to any disruption in this class arrangement and ethics.

TEXTBOOKS

It is important that every student is equipped with relevant textbooks to aid in the teaching/learning process. Students are required to bring prescribed textbooks in accordance with their timetable to school on a daily basis. Students attending classes without textbooks will be asked to return home to obtain that text or to have it borrowed from another student or have one rented from the book rental program for the period at the school. In addition the government book rental program is also operated at the School books will be distributed to students at the various levels. Parent’s must accompany the student and sign a contract. All books are available at $25.00.

It is the responsibility of both parents and students to ensure that the books are kept in good order. Books kept in poor conditions or damaged must be replaced by the parents. Students must refrain from leaving their books lying on their desk and around the school. Books will be coded to ensure accountability. Students and parents are also reminded that all books must be returning at the end of the school year.
Upon being promoted, a new set books will be issued and another $25.00 paid. Please note that all monies collected will be forwarded to the government of Grenada. A student teacher will manage the book program, which will be run by the student affairs department.
