Academic Extension & Enrichment

Academic Extension & Enrichment Program

If your child is forward thinking, creative, embraces new challenges and is a critical thinker then this is the program for them. The Woodvale Academic Extension and Enrichment Program places like-minded students in a challenging and rigorous environment and further develops their creative and critical thinking skills. The program provides students with connection in a supportive, fun and collaborative environment.  


 The Woodvale Academic Extension and Enrichment student: 

    • Engages with various challenges and projects both within the core curriculum and in the Co-Curricular program. 
    • Is explicitly taught thinking strategies to develop their entrepreneurial abilities. 
    • Cultivates a cooperative, collaborative and 21st Century approach to learning in order to reach their full academic potential. 


Commitment to the Program 

Students accepting a place in the Academic Extension and Enrichment Program are expected to continue in the program until the end of Year 9 as a minimum. 


Two pathways operate within the program—
Creative Communication and 

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) 

Creative Communication  

Within the Creative Communication pathway, students will explore various modes of communication including creative writing, multimedia productions, visual representations and oral presentations. This pathway encourages students to embrace their individual strengths, extend their imagination and encourages diverse, divergent and unique thinking in response to various philosophical scenarios.  


From Year 7 to Year 10, students will engage in innovative challenges, both individually and collaboratively, through English, Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences classes in conjunction with Co-Curricular opportunities.  

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)  

Within the STEM pathway, students will engage with experimentation, coding, environmental issues, bio and physical sciences, robotics, mathematical reasoning, materials and systems design. This pathway will extend their thinking in each of the disciplines and enrich their understanding of the world by taking them beyond the individual disciplines of Science, Mathematics and Technology through an interdisciplinary approach to develop them as future innovators. 


From Year 7 to Year 10, students will engage in activities within real-world contexts through Mathematics, Science and Technology classes, in parallel with Co-Curricular opportunities.
