Day and times for twilight classes available at Thebarton Senior College:


Students develop a research question based on an area of interest. learning about their topic through primary and secondary research processes. They produce a folio, showing evidence of capability development and planning. Students create an outcome, then reflect on and evaluate the effectiveness of their decisions and processes.

TUESDAY 4.00-7.00 PM

Students learn about the history, literature, society, and culture of ancient civilisations, which may include those of Asia-Australia, the Americas, Europe, and Western Asia/North Africa, and the classical civilisations of Greece and Rome. Students also explore the ideas and innovations that shape and are shaped by societies.

Students learn about children's growth and development from conception to 8 years and critically examine attitudes and values about parenting and care-giving and gain an understanding of the growth and development of children.

Students explore acting techniques and apply skills gained in a project of their choice. There is also the flexibility to explore other areas such as production, direction or script design.

Students develop a strong understanding of the process of mathematical modelling and its application to problem-solving in everyday workplace contexts. They examine statistical, financial and discrete models, and modelling with linear relationships and matrices.

Students explore up-to-date scientific information on the role of nutrients in the body as well as social and environmental issues related to nutrition. The study of nutrition assists students to reinforce or modify their own diets and lifestyle habits to maximise their health outcomes.

Students develop their knowledge of the principles and concepts of physics to formulate questions and hypotheses, and identify opportunities and challenges. They examine the physical world, including motion and relativity, electricity and magnetism, and light and atoms.

WEDNESDAY 4.00-7.00 PM

The study of Biology is constructed around inquiry into and application of understanding of the diversity of life as it has evolved, the structure and function of living things, and how they interact with their own and other species and their environment.

Students read a range of extended texts and a number of shorter texts from past, contemporary, and everyday contexts. They focus on the skills and strategies of critical thinking needed to interpret texts.

Students have the opportunity for specialised study within the discipline of Entertainment Design such as the development of Characters, Environments, Creatures, Comic Book, 3D Modelling, Sculpting, Storyboarding, Digital Painting, Graphic Design, Props and Costumes. Thebarton Senior College works closely with CDW Studios to prepare students to work in the entertainment design industry and/or undertake further studies in visual design.

Students learn about the Australian legal system from the local level to its global connections, its origins and functions. Students learn how laws are made and enforced and the legal issues affecting Australian citizens.

Students learn and apply skills in digital photography, design and photo editing software.

Students develop their skills in using rigorous mathematical arguments and proofs, and using mathematical models. It includes the study of functions, vectors. complex numbers and calculus. The subject provides pathways into mathematical science, engineering, computer science, physical sciences, surveying, economics and commerce.

THURSDAY 4.00-7.00 PM

Students develop an understanding of the physical world that enables them to be questioning, reflective, and critical thinkers. Students can use chemistry to explore and explain their experiences of phenomena around them. Chemistry is organised so that each intended learning outcome is related to a key idea or concept. Within the study of the chemical ideas and concepts, students develop their chemistry investigation skills through practical investigations and critical analysis of chemistry issues.

Students develop aesthetic and kinaesthetic intelligence, through using the body as an instrument for the expression and communication of ideas. They learn practical movement, choreographic and performance skills. They consider the role of dance in culture, as an art form, and as a life-enrichment opportunity connected to mental and physical wellbeing.

Students develop their knowledge of scientific principles and concepts, the ability to use that knowledge to identify questions, issues, opportunities, and challenges, and the capacity to acquire new knowledge through their own investigations. There are opportunities to learn from professionals working in the Health Science field.

Students examine a variety of media products including their creation for specific goals. They identify credibility, bias and validity of media sources and create media products including documentaries, internet advertising campaigns, short films, and photography-based projects.

Students develop their skills in calculus and statistics, exploring functions and graphs, logarithms, differentiation and integration. It includes the study of discrete and continuous random variables, the Bernoulli and binomial distributions, and confidence intervals for population mean and proportion.

Students develop a research question based on an area of interest, learning about their topic through primary and secondary research processes. They produce a folio, showing evidence of capability development and planning. Students create an outcome, then reflect on and evaluate the effectiveness of their decisions and processes.

Students gain practical skills and knowledge in the craft of film making. They learn how to shoot, capture, edit and distribute video using consumer and industry standard equipment and software.
