Enrichment Program for Block 2 is out now!

Enrolment for Block 2 Enrichment is during Home Group in the first week back in Term 3. The program commences on Monday 26th July and concludes at the end of Term 3 Friday 24th September. All students need to enrol in at least one Enrichment activity, and may enrol in more than one if times don’t clash (refer to details on the program). Students can choose something new or continue with the same if they wish.

In Block 2 there are some exciting new activities including an Alpine Bushwalk, Mountain Bike Trail Ride, Outdoor Rock Climbing, Whitewater Rafting, Wheelchair Basketball and other Para-Olympic Sports, Ultimate Frisbee, Book Club, Music Technology, Audio Engineering and Song Writing, Get Brecht (Drama Analysis), and `Peaceful Program’ (managing anxiety). Some of the Block 1 Enrichments which are continuing have also been changed to keep existing students engaged, such as Chess Club which now has a tournament option and Wildlife Rescue which has some different activities and excursions. See the full program here.

 

Hobart City Partner Schools Survey

We are working with Ogilvie High and New Town High on implementing the model for the new Hobart City co-educational school.  If you haven’t had a chance to look at the new model, details can be found at https://www.education.tas.gov.au/hobart-city-partner-schools/.

Whilst this change won’t effect Elizabeth College in the immediate future, we will be strengthening our partnership with the two high schools to improve education and supported pathways for the learners of Hobart.

You are invited to have your say by completing the Hobart City Partner Schools Identity Survey that will help us develop a vision, purpose and characteristics of the new school.

Once we have considered all the feedback we will come back to you with some suggestions for consideration before we finalise a name and identity for the school.

If you have any questions or more feedback please contact us at getinvolved@education.tas.gov.au.
