Attadale Primary School acknowledges the diverse range of skills, abilities, talents and learning styles of individual students and offers several opportunities to enrich student learning, including PEAC, our school-based Enrichment Program and the Creative Edge Challenge.
PEAC (Primary Extension and Academic Challenge)
Identified students are selected to participate in the (PEAC) program throughout the year. This program runs externally to our school.
Mrs Armstrong leads our school-based Enrichment program working with students in Years 3-6. The learning program is based on a collaborative student-centred learning approach, in which students are given specific, real-world projects to work on individually or in groups. A focus is on utilising STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) to facilitate learning.
The Enrichment program aims to broaden the range of experience to improve skills such as creative thinking, problem solving, questioning and collaboration.
Creative Edge Challenges
This program aims to provide students with exciting and innovative challenges to develop critical and creative thinking skills in a team environment. The focus on 21st Century skills gives students a unique opportunity to showcase their abilities to adapt to the changing world around them. This program is aimed at Year 4 and 5 students and is led by Ms Teede. Creative Edge Challenges takes place at our school during the first 6 weeks of Term 3, students then compete at the Regional Finals at Curtin University.
