A. Yes, this is a 5 day pw school; however we finish at 12.45 pm on Fridays.
A. All students have 4 x 65 minute sessions per day (Monday – Thursday) with a break between each. Friday there are three sessions.
A. We are a very collaborative school and have appointed a team of student leaders. All students are actively involved in having a ‘say’ in relevant matters and are asked to complete a survey twice yearly.
A. The Principal and teaching staff are registered and qualified teachers with collectively a wide variety of experience in schools and other educational institutions. Our vocational education and training staff are qualified trainers with considerable industry expertise and experience in the areas in which they train. All members of the youth/social worker team have qualifications in their field.
A. Enrolment is not automatic and is subject to an initial interview with the Principal. Past school records need to be brought to this interview as well as the young person’s birth certificate. Lack of previous success, however, is not to be seen as a barrier to enrolment. The records are used to help show whether a young person will benefit from enrolment at Horizons. All new students are given a six week ‘trial’ to test their suitability to what we have to offer.
