Kurri Kurri High School’s Learning HUBs are a new, exciting and innovative approach to secondary education. In Stage 4, students work in classes, known as HUBs, which have up to sixty students and two specialist teachers to engage in all core subjects. Working in HUBs, PODs and HUDDLES, students engage in their learning in integrated REAL projects to ensure learning is rigorous, engaging and authentic. These projects are expertly planned to incorporate all syllabus requirements from English, HSIE, Science and Mathematics. HUB learning places and emphasis on teacher and student collaboration while encouraging critical thinking skills to apply key learning knowledge to real world problems. Working in award winning learning spaces, teachers utilise a brand new way of teaching working collaboratively to co-plan, co-teach and co-assess students in an exciting and engaging curriculum model with strong foundations in literacy and numeracy. HUB Learning is a unique way for students to begin their high school adventure and will ensure the development of their key skills to ensure their own academic excellence.

Peer Critique

Peer Critique provides students with a structured and supported process to analyse and discuss their classroom tasks and assignment submissions. Utilising guidelines, students provide feedback to each other before discussion with their teacher, identifying strategies to improve the quality of final submissions.

360 Conferences

Student led 360 Conferences are a unique way for students to communicate their progress and achievement with parents by putting students’ front and centre. These 360 Conferences replace the traditional parent teacher interviews, create an opportunity for students to authentically engage with their parent/carer and a teacher utilising work samples and assessment tasks, while reflecting upon their progress in these areas. Students will discuss their skill development, commitment to learning, goals they have set for the semester, areas of strength and areas for improvement. Students then discuss within the 360 Conference possible goals for the next semester to ensure they are working toward achieving their personal academic excellence, thus making the process a genuine, honest student led reflection.
