Our unique academic face-to-face program provides a challenging curriculum designed to support the growth of individual students to their full potential. Students will have
the opportunity to develop as self-motivated, independent learners and community leaders. Only available regionally at Bunbury Senior High School, your child will learn
alongside like-minded peers and will be taught by teachers with expert skills and knowledge. Applications close 12 months in advance of the school entry year (for example,
January of Year 6 for Year 7 entry). You can apply for the program regardless of where you live in Western Australia and, if successful, your child is guaranteed a place at our school.
The Bunbury Elite Sports Training (BEST) Program is an endorsed Department of Education Specialist Program only available at Bunbury Senior High School.
The program has been developed to help maximise the potential of talented students in the areas of sport and sport science.
BEST students participate in a 6 year program based on contemporary sport science training principles for talented junior athletes. Our commitment is to support your child to be
a self-managing athlete with outstanding age-related levels of fitness and sport science knowledge.
In addition to this, students will develop their understanding of recovery procedures, nutrition planning, specific injury management, generic tactics and strategies, sport
psychology, coaching and officiating.
The BEST Program won't develop students' skills in one particular sport exclusively; students will have the opportunity to work in a range of sporting contexts while in the
program to develop their physical literacy. BEST involves demanding activity programs, sport and classroom lessons. While sports-minded students will find many aspects fun,
the program is not designed to be fun! Our aim is ensure each student maximises their athletic potential, thereby providing them with the BEST opportunity to succeed in their sport of choice.
The Bunbury Senior High School Visual Arts Specialist Program (VASP) has been developed to help maximise the potential of talented students in the area of Visual Arts.
Students will have access to a unique, specialist program delivered by highly qualified staff throughout Years 7 - 12. In the Visual Arts Specialist Program students
will learn through engagement in two-dimensional, three-dimensional and four-dimensional art and design practice, concept, theory, history and technique based on
traditional, contemporary and commercial Visual Arts practice. To this end the program will facilitate four weekly contact hours. Two hours will be in Visual Arts,
one hour in English and one hour in ICT throughout Year 7, expanding commitment and specialisation in Years 8, 9 and 10. The advanced level of skills taught will
result in students being eligible for Vocational Education and Training (VET) certification in Visual Arts upon successful completion. Students will then undertake
Visual Arts and/or Certificate ll and lll in Visual Arts, Applied Information Technology (AIT) and English or Literature in Year 11. Students will also be expected
to attend Bunbury Regional Art Galleries for exhibitions and artist floor talks as well as other scheduled excursions.
Shedworks is an off-site school program that is highly practical and targeted to suit students who are challenged by the traditional academic setting.
It is essentially a school for students for whom "normal school is not making sense anymore"
The program commenced in 2009 and was a success story since its inception. While the curriculum has always varied to meet the needs of individual students, in recent years
staff have added to the complexity of the program, bringing entrepreneurial aspects that have increased the relevance of the student's work and linked the outcomes more
explicitly to the world of work outside the Shedworks setting. The products of that work, furniture, decorator and other items - are all around the school and in many
peoples' homes and gardens throughout the South West.
The Shedworks Program focuses on employability skills and making students future ready. It provides students with life skills beyond the traditional curriculum content,
including developing collaboration, problem solving and analytical skills, all underpinned by literacy and numeracy development. The program is a 'living version'
of both curriculum innovation and differentiation in education.
Selection to the Shedworks Program is limited and is by application.
