Senior Years

At StAC, Senior Years approximates to ages 15 – 17 which usually equates to Years 10 – 12.

Significant transition points requiring particular monitoring are the entry and exit points of this stage of student development.  Rites of passage from school to work or tertiary studies are also significant.  Considerations for the senior years include:

  • A range of pathways that respond to student needs as identified in their Senior Education and Training Plans (SET P’s), including:
    • a strong, rigorous academic program
    • a good range of vocational education and training in school (VET) programs
    • other extensions to the regular formal curriculum, such as tertiary units, school based apprenticeships and traineeships (SAT’s), extended senior course, preparation for the QCS Test, various life skills initiatives, etc.
  • Leaderships and service development structures and opportunities
  • Major occasions such as Semi Formal and Formal, Graduation, etc.
