St. Peter’s College HALO Program provides our high achieving students the opportunity to be involved in a collaborative learning group.
Students are selected through examination of data such as NAPLAN, On Demand Testing results, College Reports and teacher feedback.
The program is designed for students in Years 7 to 9, and allows students the time and space to explore complex ideas with likeminded students.
HALO challenges student thinking and provides opportunities to solve complex problems and think creatively. Students work collaboratively and individually to extend their higher order thinking skills.
Examples of projects include development of a Youth Parliament, mock United Nations and completing self-directed projects based on a personal passion.
Once students have completed the HALO Program they are encouraged to continue to challenge themselves by undertaking a VCE Accelerated subject while in Year 10.
