You are invited...

We think you are fabulous. Information from your primary school, results in recent testing, and classroom teacher observations - or a combination of all three, tells us that you have great potential in one or a number of subject areas. Sometimes, that can mean you find work easy. You may find yourself getting easily bored. You may also find that you feel confident in lots of the work being presented to you. We would love for you to be a part of our Stretch program.



Do I have to do it?
No you don't. We are inviting you because we think you would be benefit from being "Stretched." You can do all, or just a few of the tasks. Like life, what you put in, is what you get out! The more you work, the more you learn.

Is it for marks?
At the end of the year, you will get a certificate of participation in the Stretch program. This is great for the resume. You may find some of the tasks you undertake help you directly with subjects you are currently studying. Some other tasks, will just be for fun, improving your skills of critical thinking or creativity.

How much time do I have to spend doing it?
New tasks will be added regularly. Some challenges will be long ones. Other tasks may involve writing just a 50 word story. You will be encouraged to share some of your responses with Stretch students from other classes / year levels.

When do I do it?
You can work on Stretch in your own time. One of the main aims of the program will be to give you something meaningful and challenging to do, in those lessons when you finish early or have mastered all the work. It will be important to check with your classroom teacher if they are happy for you to "Stretch" in a lesson. Your classroom work is always your first priority.
