Curriculum

Junior Secondary Program: Years 7 - 9
At Loganlea SHS, the junior secondary academic program (years 7 to 9) is based on the Australian Curriculum and Reporting Authority (ACARA) Key Learning Areas and the QCAR Essential Learning. This program is underpinned by the school’s social and emotional learning program.

We see effective relationships and deep understandings of the learner as critical to learning success. As a result in
year 7, we use a core teacher and home room approach to assist students with developing confidence in a familiar environment with a known group of peers.  

In
year 8, there is a small increase in the number of teachers and possible groups a student may experience. This provides opportunities to develop a wider network of learning relationships. In year 9, students transition to specialist teachers for each of their subjects and as a result have opportunities to further develop their learning networks.

The KLAs are: English, Social Science (including History, Geography, Civics and Economics), Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education (HPE), Arts, Technology and LOTE (Chinese- Mandarin).
