Mentone Girls’ Secondary College offers an Enhancement Program for girls who seek a greater academic challenge.
The Enhancement Program will run from Years 7 to 9 and will provide students with the opportunity to learn through higher-order thinking, inquiry and rich tasks as part of an enhanced curriculum in English, Mathematics, Humanities and Science. Students will have access to a number of co-curricular activities such as the Tournament of Minds, Writers’ Festival, History Challenge and others. Rather than accelerating or compacting curriculum, students in the Enhancement Program will work on more complex tasks and will learn topics to a greater depth and breadth.
The Program will thoroughly prepare students for one or two Unit 1 & 2 subjects in Year 10.
Introduced at Year 7 level in 2019 there will be an opportunity for students to join the Enhancement Program at Year 8 in 2020. Spaces are limited.
The application process is:
- Submission of current Year 7 places
- Offer of place
Edutesting will be held on Friday 23 August. Registration closes Monday 19 August.
