Year 7 & 8

Year 7 is all about building friendships, resilience, developing positive personal relationships with peers and adults and developing one’s team work skills. Year 8 develops on these areas further with a focus on the individual student and how they learn best.

At Yea High School, we believe education is most effective when families are involved, when students are empowered and when relationships are strong between the student, family, school and community. With this in mind, our Year 7 and Year 8 is inspired by the Big Picture model of education.

Big Picture Schools believe that true learning takes place when:

  • A student is an active participant in the learning process
  • A student’s learning is personalised &
  • A student’s learning is blended with real life experiences and challenges.

In Year 7 at Yea High School, students are involved in a blend of Big Picture inspired education through Advisories and Student Led Conferences, whilst maintaining core subjects.

Subjects: Advisory, English, Mathematics, Science, Health & Physical Education Humanities, LOTE (Indonesian), Technologies (Textiles, Metalwork, Food), The Arts (Visual Communication Design, Music, Art)
