Liverpool Boys High School
The introduction of Project Based Learning (PBL) has had a major impact on student and community engagement at Liverpool Boys High School. For a number of years Year 7 to 10 students have been educated through PBL - removing the tradition Key Learning Areas (KLA). Below is the process the school has taken to get to where it is today. Furthermore in 2020 there will be a complete education shift of a vertical stream for years 8 to 12 labelled ‘LBHS 2.0’. Year 7 are taught fundamental skills. In Year 8 to 12 there will be no tradition year groups. Instead a vertically streamed educational system will be implemented based on student choice of passion, interest, challenge and achievement. Students are mentored through a teacher and parent led program. Information collected from REVIEW will be used to mentor every student for their chosen pathway. Under the current curriculum system, many will continue to do the HSC/ATAR. As a result of LBHS 2.0 students will be able to use their skills/capabilities, REVIEW profile and portfolio to move onto their next pathway – whatever that may be.
