Chal­leng­ing life­long thinkers

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

THE Proser­pine Ju­nior Sec­ondary School of­fers a friendly and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment, fo­cus­ing at­ten­tion on in­tel­lec­tual de­mand, real-world rel­e­vance and the pro­mo­tion of creative thinkers.

Stu­dents are chal­lenged and guided by teach­ers to achieve their po­ten­tial, so they are ca­pa­ble of ful­fill­ing their goals in the se­nior school, be­com­ing suc­cess­ful con­trib­u­tors within our com­mu­nity.

The Ju­nior Sec­ondary School is de­signed to re­sponds to the needs of Years 7–9, as this stage of ado­les­cence is one of in­tense growth and change in the lives of young peo­ple.

The school be­lieves the value of a spe­cial­ist teacher and the pas­sion they bring to each les­son cre­ates the set­ting for in­spired learn­ing at this stage of ado­les­cence.

The cur­ricu­lum has been shaped to de­liver rel­e­vance, mean­ing and en­joy­ment. There is a fo­cus on stu­dents ex­pe­ri­enc­ing suc­cess within an in­tel­lec­tu­ally de­mand­ing cur­ricu­lum.

The fo­cus con­cepts of “life­long learn­ers”, lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy, 21st cen­tury, tol­er­ance and com­pas­sion in the ju­nior school, de­vel­op­ing pos­i­tive at­ti­tudes, pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships and a pos­i­tive ap­proach to learn­ing leads to en­hanced stu­dent well-be­ing, which con­trib­utes to im­proved aca­demic achieve­ment.

The school has a strong his­tory of com­mu­nity-mind­ed­ness and con­tin­ues to build strong links within the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Its core value is that of re­spect, which it aims to in­stil in ev­ery stu­dent.

REL­E­VANCE: PSHS stu­dents are equipped with the tools to deal with 21st cen­tury is­sues.

Spe­cial­ist teach­ers sup­port stu­dents on their jour­ney.

Creative think­ing is what sets stu­dents up for life.
