Dear Parents/ Carers and Students in Years 7 – 8,
Our Years 7 and 8 Enrichment Classes are stand-alone curriculum programs that seek to extend students beyond the standard curriculum who exhibit learner readiness for additional challenges. Student placement in these classes are reviewed each Semester based on academic performance, classroom application and classroom engagement.
We use the TrackOne data system to triangulate quantitative and qualitative data to identify the top 52 students of the cohort. This comprehensive identification process is only available to us at the end of each Semester, once report and assessment data is available. Until this point, we encourage parents/carers to monitor their child’s progress through assessment data, available in the TASS Parent Lounge Analytic Dashboard and on CANVAS.
The high school learning process is a journey that can fluctuate, as such, we are committed to monitoring the academic growth and potential of every student. Beyond our Enrichment Classes, interested students are welcome to join our Enrichment Co-curricular Programs including,
- DaVinci Decathlon
- Ethics Olympiad
- Tournament of Minds
- Public Speaking and Debating.

To assist students to achieve their learning goals the College runs Literacy, Numeracy and Science support for Years 7-10 via the Co-Curricular program in the Senior Library before and after school.
