Learning: Year 7 and 8
The middle school years are a time of transition in every young person's life. The Cripps Program is a continuous program designed to establish positive wellbeing and routines throughout the middle years. This unique program introduces and enhances Year 7 and 8 students’ attributes in key 21st century skill sets, such as entrepreneurship, problem-solving, collaboration and innovation.
The academic program focuses on supporting students in their transition through the middle years, with an age-appropriate personal development program and an Advisor program centred around a relationship of mutual respect.
The Cripps Program offers many opportunities for learning beyond the classroom. Throughout their time in the Cripps Centre, students undertake various programs designed to develop their self-discipline and independence including Cripps Community Days, Peer Support Programs and experiential learning.
