Active Learning

The Active Learning programme has been designed for the Year 7-9 students. It is meant to create an eagerness to come to school and learn with passion. This programme will help students achieve their full potential and provide new learning opportunities as well as develop unique patterns of interest, talent and goals. We believe that if a student enjoys the first hour of the day they will be more likely to work hard in their academic subjects.

Each student in Year 7 through to 9 will choose three activities from 8 different active learning subjects for the duration of the term. The students will attend one of these three activities three times a week in blocks of 4 to 5 weeks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:10-9:10 am.

The activities available to students are Instrument Music, Performing Arts, Crafts, Acti-Fun, Vocal Music, Digital Art, Communication & Public Speaking, Visual Art.
