Senior Learning Experience

Years 11 & 12

Students in Years 11 & 12 are prepared for national qualifications and we are very proud of the high standards they achieve. Senior students are encouraged to follow multi-level courses of study as appropriate.

All Year 11 students study English, Mathematics and Statistics, and Science. They also choose three additional subjects. In Year 12 students study five additional subjects.

Differentiated programmes within the classroom started the process of academic extension. This is continued in the senior school with Scholarship courses and multi-levelling for those students who seek the extra challenge at the senior level.

All subjects provide authentic learning experiences outside the classroom as appropriate to their curriculum and depend on curriculum subjects chosen.

In Year 11 Geography and PE provide learning experiences in an outdoor setting.

Year 12 authentic outdoor education opportunities are provided in Biology, Geography, Tourism and PE.

Students are encouraged to support the community and the school supports a number of nationwide events and charities. For example, students participate in World Vision’s 40 Hour Famine and have raised over $50 000 for this organisation or support Pink Day, which raises funds for cancer research.
