GFLC endeavours to meet the needs of our cohort and the community while also adhering to the requirements set out by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCASA) and Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA). The curriculum is delivered with the guidance of negotiated Individual Learning Plans. These plans are developed by the teacher and youth worker, in consultation with the young person and their families.
Immersion (Yrs 7 & 8) The focus of this program is to immerse young people in flexible, negotiated learning that aims to balance academic work with adventure based learning. Subjects and activities include English, Mathematics, Health & Physical Education, Art and adventure based activities such as bike riding, bush walking and snorkelling.
Project (Yrs 9 & 10) Young people in the Project class learn through the concept of negotiated projects that are interest based and cover key aspects of the Western Australian Curriculum including English, Mathematics, Health & Physical Education and Art. Learning opportunities are balanced between offsite adventure-based activities and the onsite classroom environment.
Senior Transition (Yrs 11 & 12) The Senior Transition Class aims to support young people in working towards the achievement of the Western Australian Certificate of Education. Young people have the opportunity to develop functional literacy and numeracy skills, practical work-related competencies, and the chance to build personal and core employability skills that are important for life and work.
