Junior secondary

Capricornia School of Distance Education has developed a Junior Secondary School Model to suit our unique distance education environment.  Our philosophy is based around the provision of an exciting and challenging curriculum, using the IMPACT pedagogical framework. 

The welfare of students is of prime importance.  There is an emphasis on developing independent learning skills whilst maintaining the connectedness to the teacher, the class and the school.  Our aim is to maintain enthusiasm for learning and build self-esteem so that school and learning is a positive and meaningful experience.

At Capricornia SDE students will be required to study at least four core subjects from the National Curriculum: English, Mathematics, Science, History (Semester 1) and Geography (Semester 2) as well as a Language Other Than English.

We are confident that we have met the challenge of providing a transition to secondary school, which provides students with opportunities unique to the secondary school environment e.g. specialist teachers and programs, while preserving the level of engagement and confidence built up in the primary setting.
