As our Year 7 students negotiate the transition into Junior Secondary, a significant period in a young person’s life, they will experience more personal change than at any other time of their lives. Because the rate of development and interests of students in Years 7 to 9 can vary enormously, we continue to refine, develop and implement structures, systems, policies and programs which are mindful of their unique developmental needs.
In 2015, the introduction of Queensland’s Year 7s into Secondary presented an ideal watershed opportunity to re-examine and initiate finely-honed ways of working with young adolescents. For example, what is developmentally appropriate? Certainly, one size does not fit all. Our curriculum and pastoral care programs must be ever mindful of addressing individual needs, as well as the issues that traditionally impact on these pivotal years of learning - motivation, engagement, and changing relationship dynamics.
Research suggests that it is through the creation of engaging and developmentally appropriate learning experiences that the students are best placed to continue the development of lifelong learning attributes, not only to facilitate their transition into Senior Secondary but ultimately into contemporary post-school society.
Year 10 students are strongly encouraged to start to focus on elective subjects that are relevant to their chosen pathway. The College supports and mentors students on issues of organization and study-discipline, as they set a course through their final years of schooling.
