Year 11 & 12 Summer School
The summer break gives students the opportunity to get ahead for their studies, and to reduce stress levels and study loads for 2017. Students who work through subject materials in advance will quickly see the benefits when the same topics are covered at school. While other students struggle to understand new concepts being presented in class, you’ll be hearing this information for the second time.
Working through materials on your own, however, can be tedious, time-consuming and ineffective. Our “Summer School – Head Start” program has therefore been designed to help you secure the best possible advantage in the VCE in a time-efficient and relatively painless manner!
During our “Summer School” lectures, you will receive a comprehensive introduction to the Unit 1 or Unit 3 course, gain advance exposure to SAC and examination-style questions and begin developing the problem-solving skills that are required to secure those higher marks. You will also receive valuable advice and instruction from some of the most prominent and successful teachers across the state, giving you a further edge in the VCE.
Detailed A+ course notes will be provided in each subject.

Advanced Essay Writing Skills - Valued at $150 FREE!
Regardless of how well you perform in your other studies, your two best English units will be used to determine a large part of your ATAR. Every student should therefore be giving this all-important subject as much attention as possible if they want to maximise their VCE marks. Students aiming for the higher marks need to provide responses that clearly stand out above other students’ papers, which is a challenging task when you consider that each response is marked by multiple assessors, and that over 40,000 students sit the English examination each year!
It has been repeatedly demonstrated that the students who can skilfully shape their ideas and arguments, use language appropriate to the chosen audience, context, form and purpose, and show sophistication and flair in their writing will receive the higher marks.
Our “Advanced Essay Writing Skills” lecture will provide systematic, foolproof strategies that will enable students to construct sophisticated and detailed responses in their SACs and exams. Essay scaffolds and models will be provided, simplifying the complex and bewildering task of composing an English essay. By incorporating practical steps, exercises and detailed examples, this lecture will boost students’ confidence in English and will greatly improve VCE marks!
Valued at $150, this lecture is FREE when enrolling into two or more subject lectures, and $75 when enrolling into one entire subject.
Registrations for this program will commence in November 2016.
