Year 9 JEEP runs in Semester 2 each year, allowing our new Year 9 students to settle into the routines of high school. Year 10 JEEP is run in Semester 1 of Year 10, building upon and extending the foundations laid in 9 JEEP.
The course is designed around the Autonomous Learner Model (Betts, 1985) to meet the cognitive, emotional and social needs of gifted and talented students. By developing student’s autonomy for lifelong learning, JEEP fosters growth of their awareness of the world around us through inquiry-based learning and reflection, debate and discussion. Students are encouraged to master concepts by presenting seminars to their peers, completing individual and group research projects and creating action plans for positive change within our community.
