Ju­nior Se­condary - happy, en­gaged and suc­cess­ful

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE EDUCATION -

OUR Ju­nior Se­condary School is de­signed to re­spond to the needs of the young ado­les­cent from Year 7 to Year 9. The ju­nior school is founded on:

An un­der­stand­ing of the na­ture of our ado­les­cents

So­cial de­vel­op­ment and build­ing self-es­teem

De­vel­op­ing pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships among stu­dents and teach­ers En­gage­ment in learn­ing Con­sid­er­ing the de­mands of a rapidly chang­ing world

Pro­mot­ing the fu­ture lead­ers of our com­mu­nity

De­vel­op­ing pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships, so­cial de­vel­op­ment and build­ing self-es­teem is a strong fo­cus for the ac­tiv­i­ties at Year 7 and Year 9 camps re­cently held at Camp Kanga and Mag­netic Is­land.

As en­hanced stu­dent well-be­ing con­trib­utes to im­proved aca­demic suc­cess, it is es­sen­tial to de­velop at­ti­tudes that build mo­ti­va­tion and the de­sire to achieve suc­cess.

Our 21st Cen­tury Projects aim to en­gage our ju­nior se­condary stu­dents in learn­ing by en­cour­ag­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion, col­lab­o­ra­tion, crit­i­cal and cre­ative think­ing.

These ca­pa­bil­i­ties are rel­e­vant and ap­pli­ca­ble for our stu­dents to suc­ceed in the rapidly chang­ing, in­ter-con­nected, dig­i­tal and glob­alised world of to­day.

Stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to choose from a se­lec­tion of projects, al­low­ing them to fol­low their in­ter­ests and pro­mote a love for learn­ing.

Stu­dent lead­er­ship has been high­lighted as a key el­e­ment within our Ju­nior Se­condary School.

Young ado­les­cents ben­e­fit greatly from in­volve­ment in ac­tiv­i­ties that de­velop their lead­er­ship skills, build con­fi­dence, a sense of be­long­ing and self-es­teem.

Lo­cal spirit is strong within our school and we pride our­selves on pre­par­ing stu­dents to be­come ac­tive com­mu­nity mem­bers and to lead the next gen­er­a­tion of youth in the Whit­sun­day Re­gion.

PHO­TOS: CON­TRIB­UTED

PROB­LEM SOLV­ING: Stu­dents fo­cus on new skills in Year 7.

Build­ing self-es­teem and mo­ti­va­tion en­cour­ages suc­cess.

21st Cen­tury projects pro­mote a love for learn­ing.
