Evidence – Supported Excellence

At the heart of this program lies a commitment to evidence-supported learning. Drawing from established educational practices and research that clearly state that the streaming of students based on ability has a negative impact on their learning, this program is embedded into the year 7 program for the selected students. This program celebrates the individuals strengths of our SEEELP students, whether that be literacy or numeracy and doesn’t accelerate them in all areas, like many other programs do.

Your Dedicated Mentor

A crucial aspect of the program is the assignment of dedicated mentors to each student. These mentors serve as guides, setting goals, and assisting in the identification and nurturing of individual strengths. The presence of such a personalized support system can significantly contribute to a student’s overall success, both academically and personally.

Collaboration and Learning

One of the program’s standout features is the opportunity for students to collaborate with like-minded peers. They meet together weekly, sharing a classroom with others who share their passion for learning can be a catalyst for intellectual growth. It encourages the exchange of ideas, challenges, and motivates students to push their boundaries, all within a supportive and encouraging environment.

Exciting Opportunities Await

The Select Entry Program also opens doors to a plethora of unique opportunities. Students can partake in special programs, engage in competitive events, and embark on educational excursions and incursions, with other SEEELP students based on their strengths and passions. These experiences offer not only academic enrichment but also a chance to explore diverse horizons and broaden their worldview.
