Martyn Program now available to Year 7 students24/11/2017
The popular Martyn Program is now available to all Year 7 students commencing in 2018. Many parents have already expressed interest and parents should contact Mrs Leah Cordedda as soon as possible if they wish their child to take part in the program.
Launched in 2016 for Year 8 students, the Martyn Program has expanded and is now an option for all students entering Years 7, 8 and 9. Students and their parents are able to choose between the Martyn Program and the traditional curriculum pathway, based on the individual learning style and interests of each student.
Martyn Program students undertake project-based and self-directed learning experiences across three integrated subjects:
- STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics)
These subjects encompass the curriculum areas: English, Humanities, Science, Technology, Health & Physical Education and Religious Education.
Martyn Program students also undertake some core subjects in common with their entire year level:
- Pastoral Period
- Physical Education practical classes
- Year Level Electives
The Martyn Program allows students to choose the direction of their learning and caters for students with a wide range of interests and abilities.
Staff teach classes in teams, with a strong focus on developing core skills, for example essay writing, that all students need to master.
