Additional Programs

ACHIEVING CURRICULUM EXCELLENCE (ACE) PROGRAM

Students are invited to participate in the program. This program is about academic rigour; it will be challenging for students at times. This program is about developing in students the knowledge, understandings and work ethic to support successful completion of ATAR courses in senior school.

 

LEAD

LEAD is an extension program within the Health and Physical Education learning area to promote the development of the school’s aspiring athletes. Through the streaming of HPE classes in Year 9 and 10, we have created an environment that promotes leadership, excellence, athleticism and dedication, the four cornerstones of the program. Students within the program engage in Physical Education, Health Education, Strength and Conditioning and Physical Education Studies Theory. LEAD students engage in sporting activities within the community on a regular basis. These include but are not limited to, squash, tennis, golf, water polo and pool.

 

CAREER ACCESS PATHWAY (CAP)

The Careers Access Pathway Program is directed towards fostering and developing in young people those skills and abilities which enable them to move towards their career goals on a pathway of lifelong learning and success. The course will help Year 10 students “fill the gaps” in their education in Literacy, Numeracy, Life Skills and Work Readiness. Students will have opportunities to access their desired career path in work experience, traineeships or further education and training.

The purpose of CAP is to help individual students to access the relevant programs to suit their individual needs and help them achieve their career, education and personal goals.
