Electives at BIS

The purpose of offering students an elective timetable is to inspire and encourage students to undertake learning of their choice across multiple intelligences. The unique skill sets our dedicated teachers possess will be utilized to facilitate inspired, creative and innovative programmes, which enhance and extend learning outcomes.

A new strategic intent is committed to providing an exciting and irresistibly engaging curriculum for all Belmont Intermediate students. Our vast range of elective options will allow all students the opportunity to experience new and challenging ways of learning.

It furthers our responsibility in meeting the needs of emerging adolescents and fosters a passion for life long learning across many curriculum areas. It allows us, as staff, to take calculated risks and try new initiatives with a mindset of continuous improvement.  It ensures the student voice of Belmont Intermediate is heard, specific and highly engaged learning is undertaken, and our learning community continues to grow together.

Electives occur 3 times during each 10 day timetable during block 3, from 2-3pm.  Each students chooses from a large range of electives, and we will take part in one of their 3 choices.   The aim of the electives programme is for students to experience a subject to extend their potential or provide accelerated extension learning.
