Bullying Prevention Strategy launched

The state government has released a statewide bullying prevention strategy focused on strengthening responses to children’s bullying both inside and outside the school gates.

Bullying prevention requires a whole-of-community response. To develop the strategy, the Department for Education has worked with Catholic and independent school sectors, government departments and non-government organisations.

The strategy’s initiatives include providing new bullying prevention resources for teachers, students and families. These initiatives will be implemented from 2019 to 2022.

Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum is designed to teach students the skills to be confident and creative individuals and become active and informed citizens. It sets the goal for what all students should learn as they progress through their school life.

Students develop knowledge and skills in eight learning areas during Years 8-10.

The Learning Areas are:

  • English
  • Health and Physical Education (HPE)
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS)
  • Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Technologies
  • The Arts

In secondary schooling, students are taught by specialist teachers. Towards Year 10, the curriculum is designed so students develop skills for civic, social and economic participation. Students also have opportunities to make choices about their learning and to specialise in areas of interest.

The curriculum assists students to consider pathways for study in senior secondary schooling from a range of academic and vocational options.

The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)

A clear objective of the Senior Campus is to allow all of our students to achieve the SACE. Given thoughtful and realistic subject selection and an honest effort we believe that every one of our students can achieve the SACE. Please read the following information carefully so that you understand what needs to be achieved and then seek the help you need from your Home Group Teacher, Teachers and Parents/Carers so that you make choices that are suited to your interests and ability and your life pathway.

The SACE is generally based on two years of full time study, but students may take more than two years.

Course Planning

Course planning and subject choice will be guided by the work undertaken in the Personal Learning Plan (PLP), and in consultation with Parents/Carers and Teachers.

You can download a course planner for the SACE at the SACE Board website. Follow the link below and use the related links on the right hand side scroll bar to find it.
