Gifted and Talented at Carine Senior High School
About the Program
Commencing in 2020, Carine Senior High School is now one of thirteen Western Australian public secondary schools offering an approved Selective Academic Program. The 2021 intake will be for Year 7 students and they will join our Year 8 class for 2021. By 2023 the program will extend to Year 10.
The academically focused learning environment is intellectually challenging and designed to motivate students to extend their knowledge, understanding and application, and to enhance their learning skills in preparation for Senior School and for a lifetime of personal progress. While the course content will follow the WA Curriculum in Science, English, Mathematics, Humanities and Social Sciences, students will benefit from being exposed to a differentiated curriculum designed to stimulate and develop the individual’s skills in inquiry, analytical and critical thinking, communication and creativity. Students in the Gifted and Talented Program in Years 7 to 10 will continue to cover all other areas of the WA Curriculum, including Heath and PE, French, The Visual and Performing (Music, Dance, and/or Drama) Arts and Technologies (Design and Digital).
Students offered a place in this program will have scored highly in the competitive Academic Selective Entrance Test administered by the Department of Education.
