NCC Students Engage in a Diverse and Rewarding Academic Life
Preparing students for a successful future starts at a young age. A strong curriculum combined with a stimulating learning environment has seen NCC consistently achieve outstanding academic results.
The NCC Learning Enrichment Centre assists students with acknowledged special needs from Prep to Year 12. This support is offered in a variety of ways depending on the student’s level of need, the school resources and places available.
Students may be referred for Learning Enrichment at enrolment, at any time by parents, or when teachers identify difficulties.
A comprehensive consultation process, including learning difficulty assessment, is worked through before the students are provided with specialised support. The process involves parents, teachers, the Learning Enrichment teachers and teacher aides.
We understand that all children have special gifts and the initiatives implemented in the Learning Extension program have been tailored in a way that allows all students to be involved.
Nambour Christian College also provides opportunities for our more able students to be enriched and extended through a variety of activities and competitions, often involving other Sunshine Coast schools.
Teachers also extend students in the regular classroom by varying assignment topics and expectations and by allowing students to research topics in their personal interest areas.
Students who display giftedness are encouraged to fully develop their potential and may be accelerated to higher year levels if deemed appropriate.
There is also the opportunity for senior students to take
part in a ‘Headstart’ or ‘Start Uni Now’ course through USC or CQU.
These courses are designed to prepare students for the expectations required at university to help make the transition a smooth process. At USC, if the student successfully completes 2 semesters of study, it will grant them entry to the University at the end of Year 12.
