Year 3 Introduction to University Day 3-phase program


3 March 2011

In late 2010 Compass identified a need to build greater depth and context to a number of our 'foundation' activities including:

  • Year 3 Introduction to University Day
  • Sydney Museum visits
  • Science Alliance activities

With the support of faculties and teachers from our partner schools, Compass has developed a series of pre and post event lesson plans that aim to:

  • explain the role and objectives of the Compass program
  • ensure students gain maximum value from on-campus University visits
  • provide students with an enriched learning experience through action learning and reflection
  • The first of our 3-phase program rollouts will be the Year 3 Introduction to University Day.

    Phase 1 pre-lesson
    provides students with introduction to the concept of higher education and understand the objectives of their university experience day

    Phase 2 on-campus event
    Year 3 Introduction to University Day

    Phase 3 post-lesson
    students are given the opportunity to reflect positively on their experience and highlight their possibility of higher education. Wherever possible, the third phase of our 3-phase programs will be facilitated by University staff or student volunteers.

    All Compass partner schools have been mailed a CD Rom of the Compass Year 3 Introduction to University Day 3-phase program in early March.
