Students in the Early Adolescent phase have a good understanding of the world around them, and are now beginning to focus on their own plans, goals and futures. The Middle School environment at Kellerberrin District High School supports and encourages all students to become “future ready”, by incorporating a range of 21st Century lifelong learning skills – critical thinking, creative problem solving, communication, collaboration and ICT literacy – to ensure our students are well prepared for areas of study and careers that may not even exist yet in our fast-changing world.
Kellerberrin District High School’s Middle School programme caters for secondary students from Years 7-10. English, Maths and Humanities are delivered by “homeroom” teachers, whilst other subjects such as Science, Health and Physical Education are delivered by specialist teachers. Students have the opportunity to participate in a range of learning experiences, including our Middle School camp where the focus is on communication skills, leadership, challenge and teamwork. The purpose of the Middle School programme is to develop confident young adults who are well prepared for both the workforce and global citizenship.
