year 9

The important final year of Middle School will see students being prepared for the challenges and opportunities of Senior School.

The curriculum, extra-curricular activities and outdoor education program work together to build self-esteem, leadership and life skills, and the development of both character and intellect. 

Students are encouraged to set goals and grow in independence. Within a safe environment, students will be encouraged to take risks and respond to challenges with growing self-confidence and resilience.

The focus is on continuing to build students’ ability to persevere both academically and socially. Students’ sense of belonging and community will be strengthened through nurturing positive relationships and growing social responsibility.

This year offers the highly regarded Quest program that is often the highlight of a student’s experience at Woodcroft College.

Further learning and growth opportunities occur outside the classroom through leadership responsibilities, a broad range of extra-curricular clubs and activities, an extensive sports program, performing art opportunities and the Outdoor Education Program.

In Year 9, students will continue to build on their core subject knowledge while having more choice to follow areas of interest and passion through their elective choices.

DIVERSE LEARNING


The College employs specialist staff to support teachers to deliver the curriculum to students with diverse learning needs in an inclusive environment. Your child will have access to support for literacy, numeracy and social skills development if needed.

COMMUNITY PROJECT


The Year 9 Community Project is an integral part of the learning experience for students. It encourages students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in their local community. Students are required to come up with their own plan to address a local need or donate their time for the benefit of others.

Through the Community Project, students experience the responsibility of completing a significant piece of work over an extended period of time, as well as reflecting on their learning and the outcomes of their work – key skills that prepare students for success in further study, the workplace and the community.

This learning opportunity helps students make connections between what they are studying and the real world.

QUEST PROGRAM


The Quest program is the pinnacle of the Middle School Outdoor Education program.

The aim of this 14-day camp in the Grampians is to develop the qualities of perseverance, selflessness and community spirit.  Our experience with this program reinforces our belief that experiencing challenges in a controlled and safe environment, gives students powerful insights and personal skills that will strengthen and prepare them for learning environment of life. Click here to learn more.
