Shearwater is now enrolling for 2019 and there are places in its senior studies program for students in Years 11 and 12. Potential applicants for these classes are invited to come along to Open Day this Saturday, November 24 and talk with high school teaching staff about what the school can offer them.

The majority of the school’s graduates complete an HSC with ATAR. However, some students complete an alternative pathway, the Shearwater Certificate, which may provide entry into degree programs depending on the focus of the major work project.

The School’s annual Wearable Arts performance event in November, is another attraction for high school students, propelling many graduates into careers in the creative and performing arts.

If you would like to know more about Shearwater’s educational approach and how it nourishes the whole being – head, heart and hands, come along on Saturday and see what makes this Mullumbimby school unique.

Classrooms are open between 10am-2pm, featuring exhibitions of students’ work. Teachers from both the primary and high school will be available to discuss the Shearwater learning program. Shearwater’s Early Childhood Centre, housing the school’s preschool and kindergarten, will also be open to visitors.
