Year 6 Orientation - Monday 23rd May 2022
Parents and guardians from the primary schools will be responsible for getting their child to Innisfail State College by 8:40am. Students who usually travel by bus to school can travel on the bus to Innisfail State College on this day. We are grateful to Trans North for their generous support of this arrangement. Under ISC teacher supervision, a bus chartered by Innisfail State College will transport students back to their respective primary schools including non-state schools, leaving ISC at 11am. There is no cost to students for participation in this program. The return buses to primary school are provided by ISC free of charge.
Accelerated Learning @ ISC
Students who are the top performers in their subjects have the opportunity in year 7 to be enrolled in accelerated math and English and extension Science programs. The accelerated classes work at a year 8 level and the extension classes challenge students with work at the top level of year 7. Enrolment into these subjects is based on a student's year 6 results and their year 5 NAPLAN results. Students and parents are advised of their enrolment when they start year 7 in 2023.
The ISC HOTSHOTS (Helping Our Top Students Have Opportunities to Shine) program delivered in year 6 is a taster for what is involved. Student participate in extension and accelerated learning opportunities to extend their knowledge and skills.
