Masterclass Future Proofing Our Students

Erina High School will deliver an innovative Masterclass Program across stage 4 in 2019 on Tuesday afternoons during period 4 and 5 which provides greater access to resources as year 9 and 10 are engaged in sport. Masterclass aims at creating the productive combination of highly motivated teachers with a highly engaged student. It is this combination that will ensure a student will maximise their development, both intellectually and socially.

With the complex nature of this Century and speed at which advancements are made, it is crucial that students are ’future proofed’ will flexible skills that will maximise their adaptability and ensure their success. EHS Masterclass is aimed at designing pedagogy with a focus on:

  • Developing confidence in maintaining technological currency
  • Maintaining fundamental Literacy and Numeracy standards
  • Ensuring students are digitally literate
  • Developing collaborative and communication skills
  • Problem solving skills
  • Importance of teamwork

Teachers nominate to deliver a Masterclass by identifying their passion in a particular field and then develop an 8 week unit of work. Students choose the course they would like to do and complete 3-4 different Masterclasses during the year. The first 5 weeks of the program will be dedicated to introducing the skills that will be developed when engaging in the content of the program. These have also been designed in order to maximise engagement and commence dialogue on the importance of being ‘Future Proof’. At the conclusion of the program EHS will deliver a Celebration of Learning Showcase so students can share their learning journey with parents and the broader community.

The EHS Masterclass will develop the capacity of our students throughout Stage 4, in an attempt to provide an embedded foundation for students on how they learn and the capabilities that will maximise their growth. This will promote future success into not only Stage 5 and 6, but to the future beyond school to develop a love of learning.

The School community look forward to celebrating the learning developed through our Masterclass program. Please see the 2019 Masterclass options available for students in year 7 and 8 to select.
