Active Learning Programme
Introducing a New Programme!
The Active Learning programme has been designed for the Year 7-9 students. It is meant to create excitement to come to school to attend a class or session first thing in the day with a teacher on a topic the student has chosen. This programme will hopefully help students achieve their full potential and provide new learning opportunities as well as develop unique patterns of interest, talents, and goals.
Each student in Year 7-9 will choose one activity from six different active learning subjects, for the term. The students will attend this activity twice a week between 8. :10-9:10 am on specific days. There will be 16 students in each subject with cross year groups in each activity.
