GUIDING IDEA: BUILDING INTERNATIONAL LEARNERS.
Students continue to learn new skills, knowledge and attributes, but they also begin to learn the specific formal ways in which they need to demonstrate these things in an international context. An emphasis is placed upon encouraging students to be independent, self-managing, but also collaborative learners who can situate themselves in the world and apply skills learning in varying contexts from around the globe. Specific skills that assist students in becoming highly skilled at understanding and appropriately responding to people from and in different cultural contexts are a focus of learning. Other skills and attributes that relate to management of the physical and mental self are also considered. Specific environments that are simultaneously supportive of and conducive to high levels of meaningful international collaboration, whilst at the same time being protective of student welfare, are a hallmark of this learning community.
YEAR 10 SEAL PROGRAM
The Year 10 SEAL curriculum is designed as a continuation of the Year 7 and 8 SEAL curriculum wherein the 7-10 curriculum is condensed into a 3-year program and students are provided with:
- a faster-paced curriculum which is non-repetitive;
- the opportunity to work with more abstract, complex and in-depth course material; and
- a learning environment which emphasises working co-operatively with students of similar abilities and interests.
