The Martyn Program was introduced in 2016 to our Year 8 students as an integrated project-based program. In 2017 the College expanded the program to Year 8 and 9 students who were seeking an alternative program to that offered in mainstream classrooms. Following the positive interest in the program at our Open Evening in 2017, it has been decided to offer the program to our incoming Year 7 students in 2018.
Parents of students interested in participating in the Martyn Program in Year 7 are asked to contact Mrs Leah Cordedda as soon as possible.
