Extension & Enrichment
Wheelers Hill Secondary College’s Extension and Enrichment (E&E) Program for English and Mathematics enhances students in their study of English and Mathematics in Year 7 and 8 by providing additional support and challenge from expert teachers in small class groups.
While the school provides extension and enrichment for learning at all levels, the Year 7 and 8 timetables are uniquely structured to reduce class sizes and increase teacher support. For half of all scheduled English and Mathematics classes, students learn E&E English and E&E Mathematics in small class groups. Students who are more advanced in their skills work together on intellectually demanding tasks at a more challenging pace. Students who are progressing at the expected level learn with others requiring a similar degree of challenge and extension. Those who are experiencing difficulty receive supportive instruction that is appropriately challenging and engaging.
In 2016, we extended enrichment opportunities for Year 9 students. Students at Year 10 and VCE will continue to be provided with high-quality teaching, expert support with their learning and the opportunity to undertake advanced studies.
Please refer to the Middle School Handbook located in the Documents Tab for more information regarding the E & E program.
