Class Programs

Students in these classes collaborate on learning tasks, engage socially, and take part in excursions together. Our dedicated educators collaborate closely to ensure the curriculum is tailored to meet the individual needs of each student. The core curriculum areas are delivered as ongoing subjects during each student’s time at school and may cover:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Health & Physical Education
  • Science
  • The Arts
  • Life Skills
  • Community & Lifestyle
  • Transition Studies

Students can work towards achieving their Modified SACE Certificate in Years 11 and 12.

Personalised Learning

Our Special Options classes prioritise personalised learning, with a focus on developing essential literacy and numeracy skills for lifelong success, as well as facilitating pathways into the workforce. Students benefit from inclusive participation in a variety of activities, including excursions facilitated by Variety SA, sporting events and transport training. These experiences contribute to fostering a diverse and inclusive school community, which we deeply value.

We provide a transition pathway allowing students to access service providers in the community and a viable post-school option. For some students, it may include finding work experience through a variety of supported employment agencies such as Disability Employment Services, Transition Programs and Business Enterprises (MINDA, Bedford Industries).
