2. Meeting

This meeting gives the student and the family an opportunity to meet with school staff and learn about the program.

3. Invitation to attend Induction

To be eligible for entry into the Year 10 program (Senior Years Preparation Program) all students need to attend the three-week Induction program, which takes place at the Yiramalay site.

The Deputy Director or Community Engagement Officer will be in contact to make travel arrangements and discuss the requirements of the induction program.

All paperwork and the Abstudy application must be completed prior to participation in Induction.

4. Post-induction review

All students must successfully complete the three-week Induction program before officially enrolling at the Studio School.

Successful completion of the Induction program relies on:

  • teacher assessment of the student’s academic potential, attitude, readiness to learn, participation and guardian support.
  • feedback from community members and Elders
  • the Deputy Director and Student Wellbeing Coordinator’s recommendation.
