Canowindra Year 9
Students from both Middle Schools combine into one group at Year 9 in our Canowindra program where learning in the core areas of the curriculum remains a common experience for all.
An increasing variety of elective programs makes it possible for students to explore more deeply areas which have sparked their interest and curiosity, and to learn in new areas which they might otherwise not experience. Our program is structured to facilitate learning in challenging and diverse contexts such as the city and the outdoor environment. Some learning challenges require in-depth focus for a whole week, and others require sustained commitment over the whole year. Effective teamwork and problem-solving with peers are fostered across all areas of the curriculum. The balance of core and elective offerings further strengthens the sense of identity which students take with them into their senior years.
