Does Life Orientation speak to the needs of learners who live and learn in townships? The answer is a partial yes as revealed by the Batsha-Life Orientation study which documents Grade 9 township learner opinion of the learning area Life Orientation. This documentation is based on survey research (n = 934) in Gauteng; North-West and Free State provinces and on group interviews with 80 of these learners. The results of the study suggest that whilst Life Orientation is meaningful, its curriculum should be more contextually relevant and that learner consultation should ideally be encouraged to determine such relevance.
