|Year 7 - 10|
Kambrya College strives to promote positive student learning outcomes and experiences through its Year 7-10 curriculum, which is delivered through the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS).
At years 7 and 8 students undertake studies in all core domains of English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, The Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education and Language other than English (LOTE). Improving Numeracy and Literacy is a priority at the College; therefore all students in year 7 and year 8 have access to intensive explicit Numeracy and Literacy instruction as part of their weekly learning program.
Kambrya College offers a High Achievers program for students in Year 7-10. Students in this program are carefully selected by a process of external testing, written application and portfolio. The High Achievers program effectively extends and challenges our high performing students to achieve their personal best in all areas.
At Year 9, the Darrabi (‘awaken’ in the Woiwurrung language) Program is an all-boys class designed for students who, for a variety of reasons, are dis-engaged from their learning or who are not thriving within the normal classroom environment. The program has a strong community links and group project focus with an emphasis on developing students as more self-aware learners. For more information, please read the Darrabi program booklet.
For Year 10 students, the Jumpstart Program offers an opportunity for students to begin a TAFE certificate and take part in a one day a week work placement. It allows students with an interest in vocational education to get a ‘jump start’ towards a qualification of their choosing, while focusing at school of the core subjects of Literacy, Numeracy, Work Related Skills and Personal Development. For more information, please read the Jumpstart program booklet.
At Year 9 and Year 10, in addition to the core domains of English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities, students are able to choose two electives per semester from a range of electives. These electives were developed to include student choice; student initiated learning; experiential learning; community education; goal setting and a combination of individual and group work.
