LEARNING

Enhanced Programs

We have a range of extension and enrichment experiences to offer our students to enhance their learning experience at Doncaster Secondary College.

Select Entry Accelerated Learning (Year 7 – 9)

The SEAL program at Doncaster Secondary College is designed to meet the needs of gifted and high-ability learners and to challenge them to achieve their potential.

SEAL students undertake an enhanced curriculum which contains a range of extended tasks, activities and content aimed at providing students with the opportunity to explore material in considerable depth. Due to this, each subject’s curriculum is generally covered a faster rate than in the mainstream classes. In English, SEAL students study a different range of texts to their mainstream counterparts. The SEAL curriculum has also been embedded with a range of tasks that focus on stimulating students’ critical thinking, problem solving and creativity.
