Kambrya College acknowledges that research indicates that one of the greatest drivers for improving student outcomes is to accelerate those students who are ready and able to do so, within the parameters of a well-structured and taught program. As such, the SEAL Program has been offered to year 7 students since 2015.
The program is delivered through a combination of accelerated, compressed and extension formats. This is complemented by a range of subjects offered with peers to ensure a balanced approach to both social interaction and curriculum delivery. Accordingly, in Year 7 the core subjects of Mathematics, Science and Humanities are delivered in a compressed accelerated format, whilst English is delivered as an extension subject where students complete similar content to their peers; however, it will be covered in greater detail and they will go into more depth for some areas of study.
In Years 8 and 9, Humanities are also accelerated. English, being the only compulsory subject for the successful completion of the VCE, is not accelerated, however it is taught under the format of extension. Each student will have a comprehensive Individual Learning Plan that will be informed by data based evidence. Students will be assessed according to the relevant assessment schedule in alignment with their program.
All participants in the program will be expected to have access to a laptop as prescribed under the Kambrya College BYOD Program. Text books are also required.
Entry into the program is via Edutest. As part of the transition process, students will be informed via the primary schools when the test will be conducted. Tests will be conducted annually in May. Details will be made available through the Kambrya College web page.
