Grade 9 at Launceston Big Picture School

YEAR 9: Learning Through Interest and Internship

Every year, your learning opportunities grow and so do our expectations of what you should do.

As a year 9 student, your specific requirements are:

  • Explore your interests in the world participating in at least 10 excursions and at least 6 outside your local community.
  • Explore an interest completing at least one in-depth project.
  • Explore with your advisory teacher the BPE learning goals and ensure your learning plan attends to each of them.
  • Read at least three books including one autobiography.
  • Have a positive impact on your community by participating with your advisory in at least one service learning activity or project.
  • Participate in at least one internship in the latter half of the year.
  • Do at least one LTI project.
  • Write in your journal at least three times per week.
  • Develop your portfolio.
  • Complete a personal narrative each term.

By now you are learning how to learn in the world as well as at school.  You are also meeting people who know a lot and are also learning all through their lives. 

That’s what you’ll do too – learn all through your life.
