Year 7 SPAR-C class. This selective entry enrichment pathway recognises the need to SPAR-C a student’s passion for learning, encourage them to become their best and be ready for their future.
The year seven curriculum for English, Humanities, Science and Maths is taught with an explicit focus on problem solving, thinking and reasoning and working collaboratively. The SPAR-C program is designed to challenge students; it focuses on personally and collectively meaningful matters that provide opportunities for students to engage in learning. Our goal is to change the culture of learning so that the tasks have value to both the students and the world. When we design learning experiences and assessment tasks in the SPAR-C classroom, we look for ways of working that allow students to use the 6 Cs; communication, collaboration, citizenship, creativity, critical thinking and character. The SPAR-C program allows students opportunities to engage in collaborative learning with students with similar academic goals. By compacting parts of the year 7 curriculum, the students in the SPAR-C program are able to explore topics in greater breadth and depth than normally required and thus enable learners to develop an appreciation of the wider context of the subject area.
