We take learning out of the traditional classroom. Co-curricular programs support and enhance student learning outcomes by providing a platform to practice the skills learned at school in a real-life environment. Our students are prepared for the world beyond school, with vocational and life-oriented skills at the forefront of projects and programs.
‘I love coffee’ – Findon’s enterprise education initiative
Students are given the opportunity to experience a taste of employment in the ‘I love coffee’ program, trained as level 1 baristas through an accredited provider before servicing the Findon community on a weekly basis behind the coffee machine. In addition to learning practical skills, this program earns SACE credits to provide a head start for graduate years as well as functional skills for future employment.
The program offers a season of Ice Hockey training and competition, including university-style tutorials that are applied and enforced through practice. Students develop skills in leadership, teamwork, respect, humility and perseverance. The integrated learning style affords 10 SACE credits.
Findon High School is home to the only fully functional courtroom classroom in South Australia. Through the civics curriculum, students learn about the Australian legal system before applying critical and creative thinking skills to a fairy tale court case. The courtroom classroom is used across all year levels.
