Enrichment Program

Edenbrook will commence an Enrichment program in 2022 for very able students.

This exceptional program aims to develop lifelong learners who are enthusiastic, adaptable, creative, collaborative, responsive, self-directed, resilient, capable of managing networks and able to work in hierarchical environments. It is not an acceleration program, it is a different way of teaching and learning that enables students to expand their minds in creative and innovative ways.

Students will be taught

  • Questioning strategies
  • Multiple ways of solving problems
  • Multiple ways of making decisions
  • Reflective thinking skills
  • Collaborative practices
  • How to manage information in a society that is overloaded with information (critical thinking skills)
  • Creative thinking strategies

Our approach is the explicit teaching of thinking skills to guide our students’ intellectual development. Students will have the opportunity to apply those thinking skills to investigate, explore and challenge concepts and ideas within the curriculum.

Students will have the opportunity to access an early VCE pathway.

Year 10

Year 10 students may undertake Units 1 and 2 VCE subject/s. This will depend upon meeting the academic requirements and subject availability.

Year 11

Year 11 students may undertake Units 3 and 4 VCE subject/s. This will depend upon meeting the academic requirements and subject availability.

All students enrolled for Year 7 at Edenbrook Secondary College will undertake an academic testing program. This is held at Edenbrook Secondary College during their Grade 6 year.

Students who are shown to be in the upper range for educational performance and potential will be invited to submit an application and attend an interview with the Principal and/or Senior Staff.

Places in the program will be offered from these interviews.
