Programmes

 Curriculum

The school provides a comprehensive curriculum program that covers a range of learning areas which are approved by the School and Curriculum Standards Authority.

Our program will introduce students to the academic curriculum and standards required in the Australian Curriculum along with a specific emphasis on pastoral care.

In addition to the normal selection of subjects offered at a senior high school – English, Mathematics, Science, Society & Environment, Home Economics, Art, Information Technology, Design and Technology and Physical & Health Education. Narrogin Senior High School also offers LOTE -Indonesian or Aboriginal language and Culture as well as a strong Music program. An extensive Local Area Wireless Network has been established to support the use of information technology throughout the school.

Study Skills will be incorporated into English, Mathematics, Science and Society & Environment classes and Literacy and Numeracy will be integrated across all subjects.

A subject selection booklet for Year 7 is being developed.

    • Safe use of ICT

In the ever expanding world of ICT, student safety and appropriate use of ICT becomes a risk that schools must manage. Most students are aware of the dangers of the internet but they often believe the risk does not apply to them.

In an effort to manage the risk and to assure safe and appropriate use of the internet, Narrogin Senior High School has recently introduced NetControl. This software package allows staff to view student computers while they are logged in and observe how students are using the internet resource within the school. While inappropriate or risky use is detected, the teacher can send the student a screen message reminding them of their responsibilities and asking them to cease what they are doing. Further actions can be applied by the teacher when required, to either log the student off the computer or block the inappropriate program they have been accessing. This will allow staff to further develop student awareness of appropriate workplace usage of technology.
