Years 7-8

Years 7-8

The Prosper program aims to consolidate the skills, knowledge and understandings students have gained in key subject areas prior to their transition to senior school. Students move away from a homeroom teacher and have specialist teachers. English and mathematics classes are graded based on students’ achievements.

Students in Year 7 participate in a technology program, further developing their coding skills and learn how to use 2D and 3D design software, while in Year 8 students are introduced to engineering, agriculture and food technology. In Year 8 students have the opportunity to choose an elective to study.

The independent learning class continues to be a key part of the middle school program. They will focus on producing a major project and continue to learn skills to become confident, resilient, and self-directed learners through the learning dispositions.

The Prosper program begins to teach students the key study and organisational skills, and increases students’ responsibility to set academic and personal goals.
