Learning Enhancement

atp-3003ENRICHMENT  – Excite and Engage

Learning Enhancement at Moreton Bay Boys’ College provides diverse extension and enrichment learning experiences for our bright and gifted learners. Individuals and/or groups are provided with extension work building on higher order thinking skills. The College aims for the boys to be reflective thinkers and problems solvers.

ALTIUS ‘higher’
At Moreton Bay Boys’ College, we recognise, value and cater for Gifted and Talented students. In addition to the individualised extension work offered in the classroom, the College’s Enrichment program; ALTIUS will be offered to those identified students of exceptional abilities.

ALTIUS aims to capture the interests and talents of the most academically able students through the provision of educational opportunities that are responsive to strengths and interests and are designed to extend, enrich and excite.

Complementing the ALTIUS program, our students are also offered the opportunity to participate in a variety of extension activities and competitions such as; Days of Excellence, Da Vinci Decathlon, ICAS Competitions, Maths Challenges and Competitions, ‘Write a book in a Day’ workshops, Linguistics Competitions, and individualised research projects.

Support

We also understand that boys learn at different rates with different needs. We endeavour to tailor support programs to assist boys as they move through the learning continuum. The Learning Enhancement support team cater to those boys who have been diagnosed with a disability and those who may be identified as requiring individualised assistance.

Learning Enhancement aims to promote inclusive practices within the College. Educational adjustments and differentiation strategies are implemented throughout the College to support boys with additional learning needs.

Boys with a disability or a diagnosed learning difficulty receive inclusive support. This assistance is provided to the boys by a range of support staff including specialist teachers and support aides. Opportunities also exist for visiting specialists (i.e. Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, etc.) to provide individualised support on campus.
These support practices are implemented in and out of the classroom setting. Utilising support staff, a variety of programs, and strategies we enable our boys the access to appropriate yet challenging learning experiences.
