Personalised Learning

Support for Student Learning

Some students benefit from additional support in their learning in order to achieve success in particular areas of their learning. Programmes targeted to provide this type of support include the Learning Plus Programme (Numeracy and Literacy Support for Year 7 and 8 students), the Applied Learning Programme (Numeracy and Literacy Support for Year 9 and 10 students), English as a Second Language Programme (ESL) and Homework Club (support for all year levels).

Extension of Student Learning

Extension of students with talent in one or more learning areas is facilitated through a three dimensional approach. 

Within the Classroom

Stretching Thinking Skills of all Learners

Girls are extended within the classroom through the scaffolding of learners to apply higher order thinking skills in order to extend their independent, critical and creative thought processes. Extension is also encouraged through a broad elective programme allowing for a deeper learning experience in fields of choice.

Accelerating Highly Able Students

Any Year 10 student meeting College prerequisites with respect to outstanding academic achievement in a particular learning area in Year 9 has the opportunity to study any of the VCE Unit 1 and 2 studies on offer. In a similar vein, Year 11 students who meet the College prerequisites have similar access to any of the VCE Unit 3 and 4 studies on offer.

Beyond the Classroom

Students are given the opportunity to connect with like minds through special interest groups in the various learning areas. Students can further develop their interests through interest groups or school based competitions. Students are also given opportunities to participate in interschool, state and national competitions to extend their skills, knowledge and goals in the pursuit of excellence in the fields of academia, sport and the Arts. A comprehensive list of enrichment and extension programmes can be found under the Co-Curricular Activities section.
