Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School

Years 11 & 12

Glenaeon’s Senior college curriculum represents the synthesis and culmination of the curriculum of the whole school, from its earliest years. It provides a balanced education — an education which serves the needs of adolescents as they approach the threshold which is the end of their twelve years of schooling.

Each student takes on a research project which comes at the conclusion of the whole journey of education at Glenaeon. This independent Research Project is a blossoming and fulfilment of the creativity that has been nurtured throughout all the years of the Glenaeon curriculum. Projects may be integrated with the requirements of an HSC subject or may be undertaken as a stand alone Major Project. The students select, develop and document a significant research activity and present their results to a gathering which includes members of the school community and a panel of assessors. The Year 12 Research Project gives the students the opportunity to explore an area of interest in a deep and independent way. Work on these projects begins in Term 4 of Year 11.
