If learning is a journey, then it is a journey that takes many different roads. While traditional educational values lie at the heart of the Gleneagles experience, our comprehensive curriculum also encourages students to be curious. A broad curriculum in all disciplinary domains of English, Mathematics, Languages Other Than English (Indonesian and German), Science, the Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education and Humanities. Alongside core subjects, the curriculum offers a number of electives, so that students may explore their own interests and talents.
Gleneagles provides a broad range of VCE subjects which are organized into programs that provide students with a clear focus, direction and purpose for their senior studies and future pathways.
Classroom learning is widely supported by computer and multimedia technology.
We have studied Robotics for a semester and have really been enjoying it. In doing this subject we have learned how to create and program robots to accomplish set challenges. We’ve managed to complete an obstacle course for our robot to complete without any instructions. In addition, we’ve done a PowerPoint project outlining the concept of what a robot is and how it’s affected society.
We are glad to have participated in this elective subject as it will help us in our future if we are later interested in an occupation that requires robotic and computer technological skills. This subject is useful to us as it has given us an outlook on how important robots and technology are now and how they will benefit us in the future.
