- Build opportunities for more personal responsibility

- Allow interdisciplinary work

- Use different chunks of time to deliver aspects of our programme

- Allow us to work on special projects

- Field trips

- Use space differently

Whatever we can imagine, we can make happen...

- A year level together for a day working how they choose to, with whom they choose to,

where they choose to, deciding what tasks they have to complete.

- Field trips without impact - take a class, a year level, a course, to a venue for the day

- IDO - 2 or more subjects combining resources to deliver aspects of an IDO

- Deans delivering aspects of the SSP

- LAs goal setting with LT

- Maths front-loading a unit of Algebra to all of Year 9

- 2 blocks? 3 blocks? 4 blocks? whole day?
