Eudunda Area School provides flexible and appropriate programs, as well as alternate education options, for a range of learners with disabilities. Catering for each student’s individual needs is vital to supporting students through the learning process.
- Individualized programs are designed, for children with a disability, to develop skills, knowledge and understandings that are relevant to their learning needs.
- Staff adjust programming to ensure all students are able to participate on the same basis as other learners in the class by using Individual Education Programs (IEP) and Negotiated Education Programs (NEP).
- Eudunda Area School prides itself on catering for all learners need
The Middle School encompasses students
in Years 7 – 9.
|Middle School Subjects|
Design & Technology
Japanese (Yr 6)
Additional Subjects offered in the Middle school:
- Performing Arts
- ALOP (Alternative Learning Programmes)
Students participate in a graduation process whereby a graduation checklist is used to monitor and assess student’s achievement. Graduation occurs at Year 6 as students progress into the secondary part of their schooling and in Year 9 having completed their middle years schooling and as they move into senior school.
Consequently, ‘Success’ in the Middle School is a function of academic prowess, citizenship and personal development.
The Senior School at Eudunda Area School encompasses those students enrolled in year 10 to year 12 as well as adult learners and year ‘13’ students.
For a small school we are able to provide a variety of programs, from the more traditional University pathways courses to the courses best designed to meet the needs of those students pursuing a Vocational Pathway.
Staff have embraced the flexible study options we have in place including: ASBA’s (Australian School Based Apprenticeships), VET courses, Work Studies and Open Access.
Our current year 11 and 12 students are completing their secondary education under the old SACE banner, whilst our year 10s and future senior students will strive to achieve the new SACE (South Australian Certificate of Education)
We offer all compulsory subjects under SACE:
* PLP (Personal Learning Plan)
* Research Project
As well as the following subjects
Design and Technology
Information Processing & Publishing
Students in year 11 and 12 occasionally choose to study a subject we are unable to offer via the Open Access College. We have forged great links within our local and the broader community which enables many students to complete paid or unpaid work and VET (Vocational Education and Training) units as part of their school studies.
A major thrust over the last threes years has been the introduction of ASBA’s. These are school based apprenticeships. Students study a part-time school course and attend paid work one or two days per week. Simultaneously they study VET programs which will lead to certificate completion at level 2 or 3. Eg Certificate 3 in Butchery.
Other exciting programs at the Senior School level are:
- ABW (Australian Business Week)
- Work Experience (unpaid work placement)
- Agriculture (extension from year 9 leading to Certificate 1 in Rural Operations)
- VET courses
- Pedal Prix
- Year 10 Camp
- Year 11 Driver Awareness
- Year 12 SATAC Information Session
- University Visits
