NOVA Academic Enrichment

NOVA is an academic enrichment program designed to prepare students for an ATAR/university pathway.

NOVA students are given the opportunity to display their knowledge and understanding of content in a variety of ways, with a large emphasis placed on learning using ICT. Places are highly competitive in NOVA. Students who gain a place into the NOVA Program need to maintain high academic standards, adhere to the Code of Conduct and have an attendance rate above 90% or their position will be reviewed.

NOVA students will be effective communicators

It is essential for future success in Year 12, at university and in careers that students can express themselves effectively as writers and speakers.

To enhance this capability students are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of public speaking forums including:

  • Coordination and presentation of ANZAC Assembly.
  • NOVA students compete in the Fremantle District Interschool Debating Competition.
  • Representatives are selected to compete in other speaking competitions held throughout the year.

NOVA and Personal Development

Students are more successful in ATAR exams if they are supported by others working towards the same goal. NOVA will focus on team-building. We want students to be enthusiastic about their academic development and understand the importance of building effective relationships. Throughout Years 7 and 9, students take part in a range of activities which allow this personal growth.

    • NOVA students will strive to achieve and maintain Advanced Standing within the school community, demonstrating the highest standards of behaviour, dress and attendance.
    • NOVA students will be confident in their abilities and assertive in their personal presentation.
    • NOVA students are expected to seek opportunities to take on leadership roles within the school to assist both staff and peers.
