Summary

Middle Year (Years 7 to 9) is an exciting and challenging time as we share the journey with your children in their transition from childhood to adulthood. In Middle Years, students’ creativity, energy and level of interest are exploding, and this is where we seek to make learning both engaging and fun.

Middle Years – An Explosion of Energy and Creativity

Becoming an adult is arguably more challenging today than ever before. The world around is rapidly changing and students need to be prepared with 21st-century skills and a strong sense of identity in order to have positive life trajectories. At Suncoast, the Middle Years program is tailored to equip students with these skills alongside deep knowledge and understanding in a wide range of subjects. Middle schooling at Suncoast is also characterized by genuine care, effort and love expended by our teaching staff on assisting students on their journey of self-discovery and preparation for the Senior Years to come.

Middle Years Curriculum

The Suncoast approach to Middle Years is to provide opportunities for students to practice and demonstrate understanding and skills in a variety of contexts whilst developing their unique gifts and abilities. Learning focuses on encouraging the student to negotiate the curriculum according to interests and passions through a wide range of electives.

Core Subjects

At Suncoast, we have developed a tailor-made program for Years 7 – 9. Students study English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Christian Studies, and Health and Physical Education as core subjects.

In Year 7, students have one teacher for Math’s and Science and another for English, Humanities and Christian Studies. This reduces the number of teachers they have, which supports their transition from Primary into Middle School.

Elective Subjects

In Years 7 and 8, students sample a range of seven, semester-long, electives taught by specialist teachers over a two-year cycle. Electives include: Digital Technologies, Visual Art, Drama, Dance, Music, Design Technologies and Food & Textile Technologies.

In Year 9, there are nine different electives available for students to choose from. Year 9 electives include: Economics and Business, Media, Digital Technologies, Visual Art, Drama, Dance, Music, Design Technologies and Food & Textile Technologies. Students select two electives to study for the year.

Notebook Program

All Secondary students participate in the 1:1 Notebook Program, equipped with a computer for use at home and at school.
