A ‘PERSONALISABLE’ APPROACH TO EDUCATION

There has been much comment in the media of late about the outdated “industrial era” model of education that sees students’ learning shaped entirely by their age: a one-size fits all approach where all students progress at the same time and at the same pace.

 

At ASC, we support the notion of a “stage not age” approach to young people’s learning; where students aren’t forced ahead at an inappropriate pace, nor held back from progressing their learning merely because of their age but, rather, are able to exercise choice according to their own skills, talents, passions and so on (what Prof. Yong Zhao refers to as each child’s “jagged profile” of talents).

 

A personalisable approach is critical for academic reasons, obviously, but also for wellbeing reasons – and I think here of how young people can become disengaged by a lock-step education system, struggling with their sense of self and self-worth.

 

To that end, we have been personalising education as best we can at ASC, within existing constraints. In the Junior School, there is much flexibility to differentiate students’ learning with many programs and examples that have been developed in recent times. In the Senior School, there has been some great timetabling work happening behind the scenes to facilitate, as much as possible, the needs of students who require extension, acceleration or a different kind of program.

 

Facilitating this hasn’t always been as smooth as we’d ideally like, though: for some students, for instance, to progress to an appropriate Mathematics class that is, say, two years ahead of their age, the timetable may have seen them miss out on other subject offerings and opportunities. 

For the past few years, therefore, we have been looking at how we can build on what we are already doing in the Senior School and really aim to progress this commitment.

 

I am pleased to report that we are looking to implement the next stage in this important evolution in 2020, starting with our Year 9 and 10 cohort: giving those students greater agency, flexibility and choice.

 

What we are looking at doing isn’t radical or extreme, but it is significant: it does aim to address what is really a moral imperative that sees schools recognising and responding to the importance of the student’s ability to progress at a pace that is relevant and appropriate to them, to the importance of empowering our young people, giving them choice, voice and agency.


What will this look like?
The revised structure essentially combines grids for students in Years 9 to 12 in order to allow students at all levels to access relevant courses (eg higher Mathematics or certificated courses) in a manner that is more fluid than we have been able to offer, and that ensures students don’t have to miss part of their program in order to accommodate their tailored course.

 

There will be no change to the amount of time provided for Mathematics, English, Humanities and Science, although greater flexibility will be provided for students who require a personalised program.

 

Along with students’ core and elective options, students will continue to engage in Health and Physical Education, Life Skills, Religion and Philosophy, and Futures (ie Careers) classes.

 

For the majority of students, these changes will have little impact besides increased opportunities in electives. On that, there will be a greater number of courses available from which they can select, and more time spent in these areas of choice. Currently, students choose six electives over Years 9 and 10, in six periods per week; in the new model students will choose eight semesterised electives, across eight periods per week. The new model provides the opportunity for students to be more specialised (by choosing a number of elective units in one area of interest) or access a greater breadth of options.

 

Students will also be able to apply for advanced placement in Year 10, 11 and 12 courses in both VET and ATAR pathways.

 

We look forward to hosting student and parent focus groups regarding this initiative as our planning for this new structure progresses in the coming term, and a Parent Information Night for current Year 8 and 9 families will be held on Tuesday, 4 June.

CELEBRATING CULTURE

On Friday the Junior School is looking forward to celebrating the diversity of cultures we have at the College. All students from Year 3 – 6 are completing a survey that gathers information about the different cultures we have represented, and the different languages spoken in the home.

 

JUMP ROPE FOR HEART

Junior School have been running a Jump Rope for Heart Program with Pre-Primary – Year 4 students. We have been focusing on a healthy heart as well as learning some very important skipping skills. We don’t encourage the fundraising however, students can organise their own fundraising if they choose. Some of our younger students have been doing an amazing job and I have just heard that Ananya Aggarwal (Year 2) has already raised $1814 for the Heart Foundation and is currently the highest fundraiser in Australia!

The Old Saints are a vital part of our heritage and are delighted to support the week by hosting many fun-filled activities across the campus, including sausage sizzles, the Junior School Art Competition and the annual Old Saints v Students' Sports event.

AU REVOIR TO OUR EXCHANGE STUDENTS FROM FRANCE

After three weeks hosting students from our sister school Lycée d’Estienne d’Orves, it was with a heavy heart that ASC students said goodbye to their host ‘sisters’ and ‘brothers’, on Thursday, 28 February. With tears in their eyes, some of our students promised to see each other next year during their 2020 exchange to France.

 

Some of the feedback received from parents and students outlines the amazing time spent getting to know the exchange students.

 

We learnt about the French culture and gained another member of the family.”

 

I made a really good friend and I know she will be a friend for life.”

 

It was a great way for us to learn about the differences between Australian and French cultures. The friendships that develop were probably the best part of the experience.”

 

My special thanks to all the families who so warmly opened their home and their hearts to our visitors. The care and willingness of our ASC community is the reason why this exchange has been so successful over the years.
