This week, we launched the Endeavour Program!
There’s been so much excitement amongst the teachers to commence this new subject at Years 7, 8 & 9 and the first lessons have been a huge success. Named after one of our values, the Endeavour Program offers a fresh approach to teaching and learning. Applying a 21st Century STEM based curriculum it offers students the opportunity to study in a cross-disciplinary, project based learning environment. Students will gain knowledge and skills transferable to their other core subjects such as Math and Science while investigating real-world issues in an engaging student-directed learning environment.
The overarching vision of the Endeavour Program is to allow students to develop skills in investigating, analysing and synthesising information and creating and designing solutions to real world problems. They will also develop the 21st Century skills of design thinking, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication and citizenship which we know are so important for life after school.
The buzz during the first week of lessons has been amazing! It’s clear the students are really excited about what they’ll learn and about engaging in a curriculum that will offer them choice and the capacity to take initiative and ownership of their learning.
The new $4.5 million Endeavour Centre offers eleven new flexible learning spaces, fully furnished and fitted out with new equipment such as twelve 3D Printers, a Laser Cutter and soon to arrive a CNC router, all of which the students will learn about and have regular access to.
If you have any questions about the Endeavour Program, please do not hesitate to contact Ms Mraz or Mr Broecker on 8762 6839.
