A FULL CURRICULUM
Learning at Glen Park
Glen Park is very well-resourced with abundant teaching resources, learning tools, ICT and a library second to none. Our focus is predominantly and unashamedly on Literacy and Numeracy and on using ICT to support that learning.
We have a one to one iPad ratio and the seamless implementation of that into a powerful learning tool for students was the focus of our previous strategic plan.
Literacy & Numeracy
We place a strong emphasis on numeracy and literacy which we integrate into general studies.
We offer a LOTE program for all students.
Simone Bawden is teaching our students Japanese. We are learning about Japan as well as studying greetings, colours, numbers and writing in Japanese.
We have access to the resources (teaching and material) of our regional MARC Van and teacher, Kirrily O'Gorman
We organise four major excursions every year.
- a Zoo excursion - this year we went to the Ballarat Wildlife Park,
- an arts excursion - this year we are travelling to Melbourne to see Aladdin
- a science excursion - this year we will be visiting the Melbourne Museum
- a History excursion - this year we will be visiting historic Melbourne landmarks such as the Shrine of Remembrance and Polly Woodside.
We also have many smaller local excursions such as to Sovereign Hill, Lake Wendouree, Ten Pin Bowling, Ballarat Golf Range, Gymnastics at the Ballarat Aquatic Centre and a lot more.
All camps and excursions are free for our students.
