FET Core Subjects

As a STEM school, every learner at Oude Molen must offer Mathematics, Physical Sciences and English Home Language through to Grade 12.

The subjects offered in our engineering focus are English Home Language, Afrikaans First Additional Language, Life Orientation, a Technology Subject, Mathematics, Physical Science, and Engineering Graphics & Design. We offer no other subjects. The choice of subjects is between one of Civil Construction, Civil Woodworking, Electrical Power Systems Fitting & Machining, Welding & Metalwork and Automotive. Learners may choose an Academic stream or Technical stream when choosing Mathematics and Science.

We use the best teaching and learning technology to encourage academic success and skills development.

The visionary ‘Holistic development of responsible citizens’ is based on the belief that our learners must be more than mere cogs in industry but must enjoy a healthy lifestyle in democratic South Africa.

There is an enormous market for the knowledge and technical skills our graduates have.  It is clear that they do well, but we also give Oude Molen learners an understanding that they must do good.


Having partnered with the Old Mutual Sports Club, we have established an Astroturf hockey field on our campus. We emphasise co-curricular involvement because we believe that it is the connection between us and our learners that leads to good self-esteem and better self-discipline. We also have a thriving First Aid Team that performs unselfishly at practices and matches.

Further to these developments, Oude Molen has the following facilities;

  • 5-a-side Astro pitches with floodlights
  • Astroturf hockey field with floodlights
  • Floodlights for the soccer fields
  • A turf cricket pitch
  • Four new table-tennis tables and kits for use in the school hall after hour

  • Tarred parking area between the Auditorium and the Astroturf fields
  • Establishment of a specialised netball court
