Abstract
This study explores how immigrant pupils feel about their own well-being and how they perceive their learning and performance.

This study explores how immigrant pupils feel about their own well-being and how they perceive their learning and performance. The analysis looks at the status of immigrant pupils, in immigrant congested schools and brings to light how they are influenced by their school conditions, social conditions and means of self-fulfillment in school. The study focuses on two dimensions of the pupils experiences: well-being and learning/ performance in school. Learning and performance are used interchangeably in this study as they can be seen as naturally going hand-in-hand.

Two immigrant congested schools are targeted and the study focuses on grade eight pupils only. The study was carried out using semi-structured interview questions with a phenomenological approach. Finally, the study as expected reveals in accordance to the literature consulted on the subject that there is to a substantial extent some adjustment difficulties in immigrant pupils as adolescents. The analysis discloses that there is some indication of lack of self-dependency, self-efficacy as well as self-esteem in these pupils. For future studies in this area, it would be of great accuracy if the health status was incorporated in the study. (Less)
