Kambrya College strives to promote positive student learning outcomes and experiences through its Year 7-9 curriculum, which is aligned to the Victorian Curriculum.
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 a Language. Improving Numeracy and Literacy is a priority at the College; therefore Literacy and Numeracy specialized support is provided through all classes. Independent Reading occurs across all Year 7-10 English classes.
Kambrya College offers a Select Entry Accelerated Learning program for students in Year 7-10. Students in this program are carefully selected by a process of external testing, written application and group interview. The SEAL program effectively extends and challenges our high performing students to achieve their personal best in all areas. Please see the SEAL Program tab of the website for further information.
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 disengaged from their learning or who are not thriving within the normal classroom environment. The program has strong community links and a group project focus with an emphasis on developing students as more self-aware learners. For more information, please see Year 9 Darrabi tab under Teaching and Learning.
In Year 9, the G.I.R.L.s (Growing Independent Resilient Learners) Program is offered as an alternative learning program for a select group of Yr. 9 girls. The program caters for the learning needs of girls who are disengaged from their ‘curriculum’. The program provides the students with opportunities to work on community based projects, develop their academic and personal development skills. For more information, please see Year 9 G.I.R.L.s Program tab under Teaching and Learning.
At Year 9, in addition to the core domains of English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities, students are able to choose two subjects per semester from a range of electives. These electives are developed to include student choice; student initiated learning; experiential learning; community education; goal setting and a combination of individual and group work.
