Gifted & Talented Academic Extension (GATS)
At Lumen Christi College the Gifted & Talented (GATS) program is run in Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 as an elective. Students are chosen based on teacher recommendations and academic performance. Students are then invited to participate in the GATS Elective through an invitation letter that is sent home.
Students undertake two classes per week and it is sought to increase the efficacy of the course through an extension and application of the regular curriculum, which includes Mathematics, English, Science and Humanities & Social Sciences.
Hands on Tuition
Year 12 students are able to take part in the Hands on Tuition program organised by Lumen Christi College to assist them in preparing for their Year 12 exams.
The classes provide comprehensive revision in a supportive environment, prior to the Year 12 Mock Exams. Participants receive personal tuition with teacher to student ratio's sometimes 1:1.
An expression of interest letter will be sent home and parents/guardians are asked to respond as soon as possible as to whether their Year 12 child will be participating in extra tuition and what subject they require.
The Mentor program benefits students by giving them personalised support and guidance they need to help plan and act for their future.
In most instances, students are placed with Teacher mentors from their own Houses or whom they already have a strong connection with
Lumen Christi College has benefited greatly from the Aspire UWA program run by the University of Western Australia. We are fortunate in being one of the 18 schools chosen to participate within the outer metropolitan area.
Aspire UWA helps them focus on achieving tertiary qualifications in a very competitive environment. This is achieved through University visits and the Aspire UWA team visiting the College, working through engaging activities with each Year group.
UWA Academy for Young Mathematicians
Lumen Christi students now have the opportunity to register at the UWA Academy for Young Mathematicians.
The objective is to broaden and develop their mathematical knowledge, involve them in problem solving and extend their range of mathematical skills.
The Academy for Young Mathematicians is open to Year 10 and 11 students with advanced students from Year 9. Classes run from March and are held every Saturday at UWA under the esteemed tutelage of Professor Luchezar Stoyanov.
