Special features and programs
The Academic Achievers’ Program is a program that is differentiated from the Middle School course. Whilst it is expected that students cover core content for each term, these classes will be able to do so at a faster pace, leaving time for further development and exploration.
Industry and university links provide teachers and students with the opportunity to learn from industry placement, in-service, classroom instruction, visits to facilities, web links and provision of resources.
