Westering offers a wide choice of subjects that enable learners to go to University, Technikon or various colleges or to continue with a career in business or a trade.
Grade 9 learners are counselled each year to explain the subject choices for the National Senior Certificate course. It is very important that the correct choices be made at this stage, particularly with regard to later tertiary education entrance.
