Recognising and acknowledging the transition from child to adult is a key reason for the Discovery Year.
It also responds to the need to refresh the learning experience for this age group in preparation for the more intense studies required in senior secondary. It is a year completely focused on giving students time to discover more about themselves, life and the world.
Each day, time is allocated for students to explore their interests and work on producing personal projects. This helps students to develop skills in many areas, encourages them to become self-directed and ignites a love of learning. Math, English, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences are the subjects taught each week, based on the Australian Curriculum and are presented in an engaging manner.
