dc.description.abstract The overall aim of this study was to enquire the effectiveness of the Life Orientation program offered in high schools; i.e. its benefits to its participants. The benefits could be students being able to understand, and accept themselves as unique and worthwhile beings, using skills learnt from the program and display attitudes and values that improve relationships in the family, group, and community. The research question of the study was how effective is the Life Orientation program offered in high schools, i.e. in terms of learner’s ability to meet the curriculum’s critical development outcomes after completion of the program? Life Orientation is the subject that was implemented as part of the Outcomes Based Education. It is an inter-disciplinary subject that is embedded in disciplines of Social Science, Arts, and the Humanities. The intention behind the program is promotion of the holistic development of, e.g. interpersonal skills, values, health, environment and religious education. The research was conducted at the University of Zululand in the Northern KwaZulu Natal province. The research design was qualitative in nature, and appreciative inquiry was used as an investigative tool. The study was conducted with the group of first year students that were registered for the academic year of 2009. Sampling was purposeful as the researcher’s specific criterion for participants were students who have attended the Life Orientation program in high school. en_US
