Personal Learning

Personal Learning in Year 9 has a particular focus for each term to support students to develop greater understanding of themselves and others.  The four different aspects of the program are

  1. Team building project – students work in a small group to develop team skills as they investigate a charity. 
  2. Community Service and Awareness – A combination of theory work and community volunteering that supports students to understand the local community
  3. The Rite Journey – students explore the journey from childhood to adulthood to enable them to enter Year 10 with a more mature approach to their learning
  4. Activities program – students select a practical activity such as sewing, gardening, knitting, wood or craft and work in small groups to plan, design and produce an item for assessment.  The program concludes with an exhibition of the completed works.
