Our Secondary Pathways
At Cunderdin District High School our purpose is “to assist and encourage students to their full potential and strive for excellence whilst preparing them for a changing world.” After researching delivery techniques, reviewing data and consultation with the school staff and the School Council it was decided that this could be better achieved through a more inclusive curriculum that offered greater choice to students with their lower school education. Such choices are also more reflective of the choices offered in post-compulsory education. To this end we have created two pathways comprising the Academy and College streams. The Academy is designed to cater for students who prefer a more “hands on” approach to education, and the College is to cater for students who are considering TER subjects in their post-compulsory years.
Within the Academy students can choose one of the following streams:
- Design and Technology
- Multimedia, Information and Communication Technology Academy (MICTA)
- Hospitality & Textiles
The school continues to offer students a range of TAFE courses to develop their skills and provide future vocational opportunities.
Students in Building Design and Technology, MICTA and Hospitality and Textiles were able to undertake Certificate 1 courses in Automotive and Engineering (Welding), Business, Information Technology and a self paced on-line Cert 1 Hospitality course.
