Our innovative Learning Excellence at Pioneer (LEAP) program provides
outstanding academic enrichment and extension opportunities for students at
Pioneer. The program is offered in partnership with CQUniversity.
provides a focussed and high-performance, learning environment for our most
able and committed students. The program develops students' higher order
thinking skills and exposes them to a wide range of enrichment opportunities.
program is being offered to Year 7 students in 2016. As LEAP students
continue through their subsequent years of schooling, they will continue to be
involved in a range of enrichment and extension opportunities.
LEAP students will be in all elective courses together, helping to build a
strong group identity and to facilitate greater opportunities for extension and
collaboration across all subjects. In addition to their regular studies,
students have timetabled lessons every week to work on focussed enrichment and
extension projects. Each term, students' projects are linked to a different
discipline area at CQUniversity. The program exposes students to the university
setting and establishes an ongoing partnership between students and
CQUniversity that continues through their secondary schooling.
