Flexible study options

The Athlete Support Manager, can help create a flexible teaching environment for students who have extensive sport and training commitments. The Athlete Support Manager can liaise with parents, coaches, teachers and Director of Studies to create an Independent Athlete Plan (IAP) which will allow a student to meet the Australian Curriculum or SACE requirements whilst still supporting their sporting commitments. Also for those students who have travel commitments the Athlete Support Manager can assist in negotiate assessment deadlines. If you are a student who has excessive training and competition commitments and feel you can benefit from this please contact the Athlete Support Manager.
