At Year 7 & 8 we focus on building core skills in all subjects with a purposeful emphasis on Numeracy and Literacy.
Years 7 & 8
We ensure that all Year 7 and 8 students receive 5 periods a week dedicated in both Mathematics and English. We provide additional support in our maths classrooms and run a literacy program for students needing extra time developing their reading and writing skills. We know that a strong foundation in English and Mathematics leads to increased success in future studies.
During 2020 the Year 7 students prepared a virtual work exhibition to showcase the work they did in the classroom and remotely at home.
At Year 9 we encourage students to explore areas of interest by providing genuine opportunities for them to choose from a range of electives. We recognise that students are more likely to be motivated to learn when they study subjects that they are interested in.
In Year 9 we offer an exciting cross curricular program – The Djeembana Program. This program is designed to both deeply engage students and to support them to develop the skills that will assist them in the senior years and beyond school.
