Programs: SEED (Student Enhancement & Enrichment Department)

Catering for Mixed Abilities

Teachers prepare classes and set work tasks mindful of the differing ability levels within their classes. All students are encouraged to work to achieve their full potential. Some students may require additional assistance within the classroom, while others may, at times, be withdrawn to work in small groups. Students who require extension are strongly encouraged and supported in entering many and varied competitions in their preferred subject areas.

Support Programs

A range of support programs are in place to enable students to work to their full potential. These include:

  • Student Enrichment
  • Extension Programs
  • Literacy Enhancement Programs
  • Subject Competitions
  • Classroom Aides

Student Enrichment is facilitated through the development of Individual Educational Programs designed to take into consideration the needs of individuals. SEED Programs assist a number of students in different subject areas to complete modified curriculum tasks. The SEED Co‐ordinator is responsible for working with the individual subject teachers to develop programs that enable individual students to maximise their educational potential.

Students have access to both individual and group sessions that are designed to complement the classroom courses of study. Much of the modified work takes place within the classroom setting with only a small number of students being withdrawn (on rare occasions) for more intense individual assistance.

Student Enrichment

At Nagle College we place emphasis on the educational, spiritual, emotional and social development of our students. Nagle College endeavours to provide each student with a quality learning environment where he or she can achieve success. Student Enrichment aims to assist in the delivery of programs that enable each individual student to access all aspects of the curriculum.

Extension Programs

Diagnostic testing results and teachers are used to identify those students who would benefit from extension work. These students work a modified program that has been developed by the subject teacher in consultation with the SEED Co‐ordinator. Other extension programs take place outside the classroom.

Literacy Enhancement Programs

Students in Year 7 to 9 are offered literacy support and enhancement programs, which are withdrawal programs. Classroom support is also available for students across all age ranges. The College proudly offers study support, Maths Club and a Homework Centre for all students.
