Years 7-9

Historical Heroes Catalyst electiveStudents in Years 7-9 undertake their studies through our innovative Catalyst Curriculum, made up of core subjects, the Personal Learning Program and courses offered through our Discovery Learning Banks.

Personal Learning Program (PLP)

The Personal Learning Program (PLP) is a three-year, sequential learning program aimed at developing individual abilities and skills as well as providing the flexibility for students to explore new areas of interest or continue learning in disciplines that align with their passions and academic strengths. Students grow their understanding of who they are as learners through this program which includes participation in four Action Projects incorporated into each student’s Core learning and the opportunity to select and study four Discovery Courses each year.
Discovery Learning Banks

The Discovery Learning Banks offer a wide range of practical and academic courses. In all junior secondary years Discovery courses are organised around three learning Banks: Creativity, Technology and Opportunity. The arrangement of Discovery courses in these important years of schooling provides significant choice across a broad range of subject disciplines.    Across this three-year sequential program students will select and complete twelve Discovery courses. Each course runs for one term and results in 35 hours of instruction.
