WHAT IS A SMART SCHOOL?

Our curriculum is designed to be flexible, stimulating, and engaging, ensuring that your child receives the highest quality of education. With a focus on personalized learning, our experienced educators tailor each student’s learning journey to meet their unique needs and strengths.

Why the WINGU CENTURION SMART SCHOOL?

Wingu-powered Learning Smart Schools provide your children a safe, reliable, and social environment where they can learn. We cater to learners from different backgrounds. Our goal is to make sure that they benefit for access to the Wingu Academy primary and secondary education digital platform. 

The Smart Schools were born out of a need for future focused education that provides a modern take on education and hybrid learning. We wanted to establish safe, flexible learning environments that learners who school from home can use to interact socially.

Wingu’s Smart Schools approach to online learning is unique. It enables learners at different points in their education journey, to engage and interact with fellow learners in a safe and friendly environment that promotes personal growth.

Benefits of the Smart School

 At our Smart School, all learners have a wide variety of subject choices and will be given access to the Wingu Wellness Hub. This aims to provide physical, mental and emotional support to ensure academic success while supporting holistic learner wellbeing.

Wingu Academy also offers a variety of different Social Clubs that enable learners to identify activities they enjoy. The Fitness and Chef Clubs are examples of this, providing extra curricular that fit diverse interests of the students

The Wingu Cares Foundation is a non-profit part of the Academy. The foundation is managed by students of Wingu and serves to uplift students and communities in need, across South Africa.

A VISIONARY APPROACH TO EDUCATION

Wingu Academy prides ourselves on being innovators in the education sector. Our Centurion Smart School is just one aspect of our visionary approach to blended and hybrid learning.

WHAT IS THE BLENDFLEX APPROACH?

The BlendFlex model of learning allows student to work through a curriculum with a face-to-face, synchronous (paced with the class) online and asynchronous (self paced) online experience that runs simultaneously.  

Students can toggle between online face-to-face sessions or class recordings, and complete the rest of the course online. This provides the opportunity for students to seamlessly move backwards and forwards within the course, to ensure that they can master each aspect of the curriculum at their own pace.

The main benefit of this approach is to give students the freedom to choose the course mode by accommodating a wide variety of learning styles, accommodating different lifestyles, and providing the flexibility to work around the family’s busy schedule.

COMPONENTS OF A BLENDFLEX SYSTEM

Live interaction between subject experts and students.

Pre-recorded content for selfpaced learning.

Grade-determining assessments, tests and assignments.

Wingu’s Remote Learning Platform

The Wingu platform has evolved markedly over the past year to provide a unique blended experience for the families. It allows you to utilise Wingu for either complete online schooling or traditional home-schooling with the ability to take advantage of the benefits of both approaches.

Our Centurion Smart School even more to students.

The remote learning platform offers the opportunity for a modern hybrid model where students can learn from anywhere, anytime, or at the Smart School with fellow students. 

Developed by teachers, subjects experts, advisors from TuksNovation at the University of Pretoria, and in collaboration with researchers at the Wits School of Education, Wingu is world-class.

Our online school offers an international curriculum that is relevant globally but contextualised for the African continent

There is a focus on student-led learning, gamification and instant constructive feedback. Continuous assessment by qualified educators and support by expertly trained student success advisors and learning coaches create a new approach to learning that is not only effective, but life changing.

The core of the Academy is to develop Fourth Industrial Revolution Skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving and emotional intelligence. It will also assist with the provision of stable internet, required to access the platform, in areas with poor connectivity and internet coverage.
