The Year 10 program at Shelford allows for education of the whole person – emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically.
Building upon the Year 9 program, Year 10 studies support the students’ transition to becoming more independent and mature learners.
Students are encouraged to supplement class work through participation in extra-curricular activities including sport (both House and school), Music ensembles, Drama performances and leadership opportunities. These contributions are acknowledged in Semester reports.
Students are also encouraged to:
- become Peer Support leaders to Year 7 students
- act as Senior School Parliamentarians
- volunteer for community service.
The Quærite Program
The pastoral care program in the Senior School, Quaerite, supports student’s personal and academic development. The term Quaerite means to seek or search for. It is our aim to ensure that students have a sound understanding of their place in the world, the community and their personal responsibility.
This program allows students to participate in a series of workshops to explore relevant themes, including:
- Making positive choices
- The learner in me
- You can do it
- Empowering through service.
The Quaerite program is based on Shelford’s core values – respect, integrity, passion and creativity.
