Don’t dare say the word “classroom” at this school – it could get you into big trouble. The correct term is “learning hub” and it’s where you’ll usually find learners lounging on beanbags with their laptops as they learn to code or are taught about cryptocurrency.

And don’t go to “the lab” expecting to see students dissecting frogs or conducting science experiments. Instead what you’ll find is a cavernous hall with flashing screens and kids playing games.

Believe it or not, eSports form part of the curriculum at Centennial Schools in Sunninghill, Sandton, Johannesburg.
