Self Select Program

At Seven Hills High School, we are dedicated to turning potential into performance in all areas of a student’s life. We recognise that some students are independent learners who are able to explore the curriculum in a self-directed and meaningful way.

The Self-Select Program uses innovative teaching models, flexible learning options and creative problem solving techniques that encourage students to challenge themselves to achieve their personal best. By taking ownership of their education, students engage actively in the experiences provided so that they not only set, but also achieve, higher standards throughout their learning journey.

Criteria for admission to the Self-Select program relate to student motivation, enthusiasm for learning, an ability to work both independently and cooperatively, as well as a history of mature and responsible classroom behaviour.

Students wishing to undertake the Self-Select Program will need to commit to:

  • Completing enrichment activities
  • Participating in negotiated extra-curricular activities
  • Completing homework; and
  • Displaying appropriate classroom behaviour

Enrichment Program

One period per week is dedicated to an enrichment program. It is designed to extend and challenge students through processes associated with Key Learning Areas within the curriculum.

The enrichment program will allow students to develop their research skills, evaluate various forms of media, extend their repertoire of problem solving strategies and develop creative solutions to these problems.

Enrichment activities may include:

  • Excursions and guest speakers: These events will provide the students with exposure to ideas, processes and techniques beyond the usual range. The opportunity to see and question experts working in their field provides motivation and encourages curiosity and questioning. This in turn may be the basis of further research, independent study and extension activities.
  • Hands-on experiences/projects: Students will be taught to use sophisticated materials and equipment to undertake research independently.
  • Training in the use of multi-media technologies: This will enable students to develop independence and responsibility when undertaking research as well as build on their presentation and public speaking skills.

Students wishing to gain a place in the Self-Select class need to complete the Self Nomination Form below.

Information in this form is one part of the nomination process. The individual’s application will be considered alongside the Student Profile form which is provided by the student’s Year 6 classroom teacher.
