We are committed to providing a personalised learning experience for every student. During student enrolment and at other significant times during the year students are encouraged to explore their interests and career aspirations and to make appropriate subject choices.
 
Extension opportunities are provided for gifted students; support programs in the areas of literacy and numeracy are offered to those students needing extra input and vocational opportunities exist for students to develop a diverse range of work related knowledge and skills.

Our Big 3 Strategic Priorities at SSHIPS in 2020 are:

  • Critical thinking

  • Problem solving

  • Writing

To maximise student's skill development in these areas, we have developed a series of high impact, evidence based, signature practices, which are used by teachers across faculties. 

To support student's critical thinking, our focus is on explicitly teaching the skills involved with cognitions, with a focus on our SSHIPS Big 6 Cognitions (comprehend, explain, interpret, analyse, evaluate and justify). 

In developing students problem solving skills, we use the POLYA four step problem solving placemat to guide students through problem deconstruction, planning, responding and checking their answers. 

To improve student writing, we have implemented the Stepping Up writing process. Stepping up provides a tool for students to recraft their responses to improve clarity, structure and quality of the response.
