The Horizons Program includes many new challenges to extend our highly able students in academic achievement as well as sport, The Arts, sustainability and community engagement. Programs offered from year to year vary depending on the make-up of our individual students. This year a few highlights of the program included selected students being offered ‘mini-scholarships’ to participate in online extension programs as well as the school’s involvement in the Maths Tournament, where selected students were coached by our Numeracy Coach and Head of Curriculum.
Support and Intervention Program
Teachers have the assistance of a Support Teacher Literacy and Numeracy, Advisory Visiting Teacher and a Guidance Officer to help children with special learning needs to reach their potential. The SEIT Committee meets every fortnight to discuss referrals of students with support and enrichment needs. This includes learning difficulties, misbehaviour, and health and safety concerns. From this meeting a set of actions or responses are activated. A range of trained support teacher aides are available to support the class teacher, small groups and individuals when needed.
