To support students who are seeking additional extension and enrichment in the academic fields, Heathmont College runs our Excellence and Enrichment program.
Year 7 students who sign up to the EEP, each receive individual coaching by a trained member of the leadership team to help them set goals and work to achieve these goals across many aspects of student life including achievement, work habits and social/emotional wellbeing. The coaches work with individual students to identify their strengths and talents as well as areas for improvement. A program is then designed to provide extension, enrichment and acceleration where needed to ensure that all students maximise their personal and academic growth.
In addition, a range of withdrawal extension programs are offered across the year in areas such as Mathematic, Science, Humanities and English as well as additional activities and programs in other subject areas such as the Arts and Sports. Noting that our Sports Academy, Language programs and Instrumental Music programs can also be combined with the EEP to enhance student experiences at the college.
Students who join the EEP will not be required to purchase additional or separate texts, all resources require for the program will be provided by the school as needed.
Students are encouraged to apply for the EEP if they are seeking further extension or enrichment in any subject areas but particularly in Mathematics and / or English. All applications will be considered. Intake interviews will be conducted by one of the coaching staff and will consider the initial student application, including endorsement from a parent, testing data and student identified interests, passions and goals.
