Year 9

In recognition of the needs of year 9 students, a new program was introduced in 2015:  the Gadal Learning program.  The students have their own purpose built learning centre.  The Gadal Learning program aims to help students  ‘to learn, to grow and to discover’.  The core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, R.E and HPE remain the same, however two new programs were introduced: Enquiring Minds and The Rite Journey.  Both these are designed to support the development of self-aware, vital, responsible, respectful and resilient young adults who are self-motivated and interested in their own learning. There will be 10 program teachers who will provide the core of the program, building strong relationships with the students; other teachers will teach some core subjects.  The elective program for Year 9 is concentrated around ‘designing, creating and exploring’.
