It’s that time of the year when Beaconhills students get a taste of what lies ahead for their learning in 2017 with our series of ‘headstart’ programs.
For students in early learning, Year 4, Year 8 and 9, it’s an especially important time as they prepare for the transition to a new sub-school.
Parents often query the rationale behind the sub-school structure. Why, for example, do we have Middle School (Year 5-8) rather than the traditional system of primary (Prep-6) and secondary (7-12)?
My simplest answer is that if you think of a child’s development to adulthood, it falls into three stages: children, adolescents and then young adults. Sub-schools – including our Year 9 program which meets the specific needs of this age group – best match these stages.
Our sub-schools are also small enough to provide a community feel within the bigger College, but large enough to offer great educational opportunities.
