Life orientation is the study of the self in relation to others and society. It applies a holistic approach. It is concerned with personal, social, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, motor and physical growth and development of learners, and the way in which these dimensions are interrelated and expressed in life. The focus is the development of self-in-society, and this encourages the development of balanced, confident learners who will contribute to society.
