YEAR 7-9 COURSES

At Taminmin we believe that every child has a right to engage in learning that is safe, disciplined and challenging. We value high achievement, strong relationships and positive attitudes. Our teaching programs strive for innovation and excellence through the integration of relevant themes associated with the social, physiological and emotional development of the adolescent student.

All students from years 7 -9 are arranged in Pastoral Care groups. The year 7 and 8 student timetable consists of the five core subjects: English, SOSE, Science, Maths and Health and Physical Education; Pastoral Care and a rotation each term of two elective classes. The Year 9 students also undertake core subjects and Pastoral Care however they nominate two electives to study each semester.

Electives on offer at Taminmin include:

  • Agriculture
  • Art
  • Dance
  • Drama
  • Home economics
  • Information technology
  • Music
  • Wood technology

Leading Learner & Aspire

Taminmin’s Leading Learner Program supports and challenges our most academically gifted students as they develop the talents for successful professional careers. The Leading Learner Program creates an environment where it is normal for students to excel and develop their higher order thinking skills. 

The Aspire Program at Taminmin College supports, extends and challenges students who have a commitment to learning which is demonstrated by the effort and attention they pay to their studies. Students are not required to be high academic achievers to be members of this program. These students will have sound literacy and numeracy skills. These students may also be involved in the school community through sports, music, arts or be student representatives. Students in this class will have a history of satisfactory classroom behaviour.

The programs operate in the core subject areas from years 7 through to 9. For more information click here.
