We know that we cannot simply replicate the on-campus experience, but we can provide opportunities that continue to engage, extend and excite our learners.
The Scotch: ConnectED Co-Curricular program enables our students to continue to develop their interest in activities that ignite their passion beyond the classroom.
Importantly, whilst they are hosted online, Co-Curricular activities do not always require students to be online!
Often these activities need to be a a break from screen time and are about doing!
Students can choose from a number of sports, performing arts or other activities as optional extras, including those listed below.
Off-site does not mean that that our Sports program ends! The wellbeing of the students is a primary motive for the operation of the Sports program and it will continue to offer a structured program for our students to be physically active.
The new Performing Arts Hub will welcome students into our broader arts community with many opportunities to engage with cross campus and cross year level events as well as connect with a wide variety of high-quality tutors through virtual classrooms and community projects.
Ligertwood Library will sustain connection to our library family with Crafternoon, eBooks, videos, audiobooks, virtual excursions, eBook club and our very personal “Share from the Pod Chair” throughout the remote learning period. We believe that by maintaining our library community we provide support and a vital link to Scotch resources and people.
The Scotch Oratory and Challenge & Enrichment Programs continues to be offered with programs modified to accomodate online learning. Offerings include debating, public speaking, Mock Trial, Tournament of the Minds and more.
Sew & Tell with Ms Monro gives students a chance to learn a number of new skills in Fashion Technology on Wednesdays from 3:30 – 5pm. Students will require a sewing licence and Caremonkey approval.
The Entrepreneurship program seeks to further the building 21st Century employability skills in a non-classroom environment and is also a great way to develop student’s financial literacy. Term 2 opportunities include the Sharemarket Game and Online Financial Literacy.
