The Learning Centre is a vibrant and productive initiative that operates in the Hill Campus Library every afternoon after school. It is a place for students to study, receive subject specific assistance and further develop their learning.
The Centre is run by teachers and tutors across a range of subject areas. It aims to provide a focused study space to aid concentration along with the opportunity to ask questions to assist with the completion of tasks and further develop understanding of concepts and theories.
Students are encouraged to use the Centre as best suits their learning needs. Some senior students timetable these sessions into to their study planners while other students drop in for help on a needs basis. Other students choose to attend for a number of sessions with a particular subject specialist to clarify and refine understanding of a particular skill or part of the curriculum. Some students choose to use this time to complete their homework in the afternoon in this focused working space.
Teachers share their expertise and advice in these sessions and it has been a pleasure to see students’ confidence develop, their skills improve and the gratitude they express from this learning opportunity. Students benefit from advice about time management and study strategies; organisation; the benefits of working collaboratively and with specific goals in mind; they feel supported and empowered to take control of their own learning experience.
The Centre operates from 3.15pm until 5.30pm Monday to Friday for Year 7 to 10 and 3.15pm until 7pm Monday to Thursday for Years 11 and 12. Years 11 and 12 may also use the Library during holiday periods and take advantage of a distraction free study environment.
A Homework Club for Year 5 and 6 students takes place after school in the primary area of Hill Campus. This is staffed by primary teachers and tutors and enables students to complete their homework and get into good routines at the end of the school day.Contact Us to Learn More
