Secondary Years


Our Secondary students are fortunate to be learning in a dynamic and innovative environment. Its a place where the transition between Year 6 and Year 7 is as seemless as it should be. All children are known as individuals and programs are tailored for each and every learner.

 

We continue our focus on literacy and numeracy, as well as providing a broad range of specialist learning opportunities for students. Crucial subjects such as History, Geography, Science, Civics and Citizenships and SOSE are explicitly taught. Teachers assess and plan collaboratively to develop a purposeful and logical learning program from Year 7 through to Year 10.

 

Effective assessment is critical if we are to tailor our teaching to your child. We use a range of assessment tools to establish the level at which your child is working. Using that as a starting point, together we plan a learning program for your child that is continually monitored and revised.

 

Features of our secondary classes include:

  • The benefit of small class sizes

  • Have access to a range of different teachers and groups through our use of the flexible learning spaces

  • Have a safe and consistent ‘home space’ where they have an assigned locker.

  • Have programs geared towards improving their Literacy and Numeracy Outcomes as well as developing their own sense of wellbeing.

  • Be assessed in a range of different ways to establish the exact level at which they are working.
