Excellence programs

Park Lake State School offers a range of activities to extend students with various gifts and talents. Extension programs such as Mathematics and English (taught by Pacific Pines SHS teachers), Choir, Instrumental Music and Robotics for students in a range of fields. 

In Term 4 of 2015 Park Lake State School introduced the Excellence Japanese program with the assistance of a Languages and Innovation Grant of $10,000. Students displaying high-level progress in Japanese, Mathematics and English learning areas were invited to join the Excellence Program, run as an additional class once per week during class time.  

While the whole-school Japanese program caters for all students, and the teacher continues to differentiate and personalise learning during regular class times, the challenge remains to meet the diverse academic needs of higher achieving students. Across the year levels there is a number of students who continually demonstrate both high achievement and interest in Japanese language studies. The Japanese Excellence Program was introduced as a response to meet the needs of these particular students.
