Braybrook College is proud to offer a Year 7 Class especially designed to cater for the learning needs of the more academically talented students that adds to the wide variety of curriculum and co-curriculum opportunities already established. The Select Entry for Enrichrment and Knowledge (SEEK) Program encourages students to seek knowledge and skills so that they can achieve to their full potential.
The success of the program was evident last year when 11 of the SEEK students achieved an ATAR score over 90 and 21 SEEK students recieved an ATAR over 80. One of these students was the dux of the college and she recieved an ATAR of 99.05.
Expectation of Students
Students should be hard working and capable of performing at the top of a normal class. Our selection process allows us to assess the suitability of applicants.
Placement in the program is a privilege and students must make a commitment to perform at their best. Work expectations will be greater than in a mainstream class.
The progress of students will be monitored by the class room teachers and the Program Coordinator. Students must maintain the necessary academic performance to remain in the program. Students unable to perform will be returned to the mainstream classroom program after consultation with parents and teachers.
Students will remain in the program until Year 10 and if they meet certain criteria they will be offered some VCE subject choices.
Aims of the Program
• Develop deeper-thinking skills and problem-solving skills
• Work independently and in a team
• Show initiative and organisation
• Take up the opportunity for enrichment, challenge and self-motivation.
Year 7 Course Structure
All Year 7 students have the opportunity to study a wide range of subjects including Art, Drama, Physical Education and Music. We also offer numerous co-curriculum activities including sport and camps. Core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, and Humanities will be enriched.
