The Diverse Learning department provides additional support for high potential learners as well as students with learning difficulties. The Diverse Learning Team:
EnrichED, the College’s high potential learner program, consists of the iThink, InnovatED and InspirED modules, designed to challenge, motivate and engage learners identified with high potential in Years 7 to 11.
Students in Years 9 and 10 identified as high potential learners may be offered an invitation to this philosophy-based elective. Students are challenged to a high degree of academic rigour and abstract thinking, providing stimulation for students to develop their research, academic writing, critical and creative thinking skills.
Students engage in an independent learning project over a period of several weeks, offering them the opportunity to explore an area of interest and extend their learning skills.
Students in Years 7 to 11 are offered a range of full day workshops designed to develop critical and creative problem-solving skills. These days enable students to interact and engage in issues relevant to their local and global community and become discerning citizens of the world.
Workshops and programs students participate in include:
Students in Years 7 – 10 receive targeted support based on their need.
