Year 7 Program
Foster Secondary College has implemented a dedicated Year 7 Program, which will continue in 2022. The program is based on the Department of Education and Training (DET) implementation of the Victorian Curriculum F-10 initiative in Teaching and Learning. Our Year 7 Program promotes student contribution and encourages ownership of learning.
The Year 7 Program seeks to develop strategies for raising achievement and transforming learning to improve student engagement. Providing students with a broad range of learning experiences and a significant focus on having students develop as learners are two of our specific goals.
Year 7 Hand Book
A definitive factor in creating the Year 7 Program was a conscious desire to promote student involvement in the community. This means their College Community and also local, regional, national and global. Students are encouraged to be involved in groups outside school, including sporting clubs, interest groups and charities.
The Year 7 Program takes a holistic approach to education; not simply academic growth. It recognises that students aspire to a variety of pathways in their future, and tries to prepare individuals with the necessary skills, including teamwork skills and leadership skills. The program seeks to assist students in acquiring a broad knowledge of themselves as learners and people.
