Year 11 Accelerated Class About To Complete Mathematics B Course

​Year 11 Accelerated Class About To Complete Mathematics B Course
As we enter the final term of 2016 I feel it is important to acknowledge a special group of students here at Toolooa SHS. Mr Slape’s year 11 class is about to complete their Senior Mathematics B program in 6 weeks’ time, 12 months ahead of their peers.
Even though being fast tracked through a course is not new to students at Toolooa SHS, it is something that has been restricted to single students or small groups in the past.
Back in 2013 Mr Slape’s class (which was then Miss Gwynne’s year 8 maths class) were quickly identified as being an extension class like no other we had seen before. Their knowledge base, maturity and willingness to be challenged academically led us to leap frog the entire class into the year 9 curriculum during term 1 of that year. Since then they haven’t looked back. Easily matching it with older students and in many cases achieving higher results.
At Toolooa SHS we pride ourselves on the fact that we are always trying to do the best educationally for our students and it is with great satisfaction that we are now seeing 18 of our finest year 11 students about to complete their formal mathematics education 12 months ahead of their graduating cohort.
We hope that these students are able to use the extra time they will have available next year to make sure they are just as successful in their remaining subjects so that they leave Toolooa SHS at the end of 2017 with the OP they want and an education that will set them up for life.
Well done guys!
