HPGE Class

HPGE Opportunity Class

This class is provided with an enriched curriculum where each student is extended in all subjects and is encouraged to use higher order thinking, creativity and inquiry based learning.

Where applicable, the curriculum will be compacted. This ensures students are not simply repeating work they already understand, and leaves the teacher free to provide enriched learning opportunities according to student need and interest.

We believe it is imperative that all students are extended. Potential has no limits. Every one of our expert teachers has completed professional learning in differentiating the curriculum to ensure our talented students in mixed ability classes have access to an extended curriculum to meet their needs. Understanding how to personalise learning is a priority of the school's professional learning program.
