various leadership positions such as house captain and SRC members. Personal

and the Jewish Studies lessons. Year 10 students have the opportunity, through
the work experience program, to sample their chosen career path. All students
have access to counselling. Programs for younger students include a social
skills program, membership of the SRC (from Year 2), and peer support.
