St John’s New Accelerated Learning Program

We are excited to announce the piloting of our new accelerated learning and enrichment program, SOAR, in Term Three 2020.

Initially, in Mathematics and English, a small group of Year Ten students in both subjects will be invited to participate in this pilot in an accelerated unit during Term Three 2020. Students will be required to participate in a Year 11 unit in the second half of the term having undertaken all their Term Three work in the first half.

The SOAR program is designed to foster and extend high potential students to move through the curriculum at a faster pace. Through the customisation of their
subject timelines, students will be extended by participating in a higher year level of study or through a broad range of enrichment activities.

The SOAR program will challenge and extend participating students, provide opportunities to share experiences with like-minded scholars, foster collaborative skills in problem solving, critical and creative thinking and cultivate rigorous enquiry.

In 2021, following a review of the pilot program, SOAR will be implemented in the Secondary School and offered to students in Year Seven onwards.

For further information on this new learning and enrichment program please contact:

Mrs Fiona Gunthorpe, Learning Enhancement and Support Teacher – fgunthorpe@sjac.qld.edu.au
