Excellence programs

Academic Excellence

Academic Excellence was established in 2001, specifically created for students who desire to achieve the most out of their scholastic studies. Students that participate study a modified curriculum to further streamline their progression into the senior school.[2]

Creative Arts Excellence

The Creative Arts Excellence program focuses on developing ambition, artistry and academia in students. The program includes specialised skills training, arts showcases and projects.[3]

Sports Excellence

In 1996, the Sports Excellence program was created to allow students in years 8-12 excelling in sport to play and train at a more professional level. The program helps students develop as athletes as well as the fair play and leadership aspects that accompany it. ‘Sport Ex’ is taken as 1 of 6 chosen subjects, which enables more time per week in the program. Sports Excellence now accommodates students in AFL, Basketball, Kayaking, Netball, Soccer, Rugby League, Tennis, Track & Field, Surfing and Touch Football.[4]

Media appearances

The school was used for the TV series Mortified around 2005 - 2007. In the first series, the school was used as Sunburn Beach Primary, and, in the second series, was used as Driftwood High School.[citation needed]
