Stuartholme recognises the importance of encouraging gifted and talented students to understand and utilise their unique abilities. Opportunities for enrichment and extension are provided to students through individual curriculum programmes, extra-curricular programmes, competitions and special events. Examples of programmes include Future Problem Solving; mathematics competitions and challenges; and Year 12 extension programmes for music and english.
Our aim is to accommodate the strengths and learning needs of all students in accessing the curriculum, engaging effectively in the learning process and demonstrating successful outcomes. Our teaching staff strive to create a safe, yet challenging learning environment for all students. In addition, individual and small group support for students who require additional assistance transitioning into Year 7 and middle secondary studies is available for identified individual needs.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education
Stuartholme has a long history of providing educational opportunities for students with an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background. We support scholarship programmes for remote and regional students. We also provide educational opportunities for students locally.
The School fosters a culture that values indigenous heritage. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags are flown as a symbol of our commitment to the recognition of our heritage, reinforcing understanding and valuing the contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
Opportunities to attend specialist classes in English as a Second Language (ESL) exist for students whose first language is not English.
Support is provided by specialist staff who work with students in small groups. The ESL Programme provides targeted English language enrichment across reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as individualised academic support in key subject areas.
