MR JARROD PLEASS DIRECTOR OF ACADEMICS SECONDARY

Mr Jarrod Pleass, Director of Academics Secondary, discusses how the Secondary Years at Sheldon College provides our students with the opportunity to engage in a broad range of Academic, Cultural and Sporting programs. Exposure to these programs provides them the skills to be flexible, confident, creative and intrinsically motivated.

The Secondary Years at Sheldon College provides our students the opportunity to engage with a broad range of Academic, Cultural and Sporting programs. Exposure to these programs provides them the skills to be flexible, confident, creative and intrinsically motivated. 

The Secondary Years platform also encourages innovation and active collaboration within authentic contexts, thus preparing every student for the rigours of senior study as they track towards their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

Our aim is to provide each student with a holistic education whilst also providing the maximum opportunity for them to develop and grow in their specialist fields of study.
