The Aspiring Scholars Enrichment Programme

At the start of Term 2, Long Bay College launched the Year 9 and 10 Aspiring Scholars Enrichment Programme for 2023, and this will continue fortnightly in Terms 2 and 3. Students are excited about upcoming sessions which will cover a wide variety of topics such as ‘Ethical Perspectives’, ‘Learning from Memory’, ‘The development of AI’ and ‘Conspiracy Theories’. The Aspiring Scholars Enrichment Programme is designed to give students a head start in developing critical thinking skills which are needed for success in NCEA and NZ Scholarship Exams in future years. Enrichment sessions challenge students’ thinking and encourage them to consider a wider world view. Sessions are led by teachers who have expertise in developing high order thinking skills in students. This programme is in addition to the extension activities which students receive in their Aspiring Scholars core classes.

Placement testing for our 2024 Year 9 Aspiring Scholars class will take place on Saturday 5th August 2023 (Week 3, Term 3). For more information on the Aspiring Scholars programme or to register your interest, please feel free to contact office@lbc.school.nz
