GAT provision at WSC is Department based and all HOD's have a section on their GAT provision in their annual departmental report and in their unit plans. WSC is a mixed ability school and departments use differentiation of lesson content, process or product, run enrichment programmes and accelerate some students.
Philosphy began as part of the Gat programme and is now offered as an option at all levels.
As GAT co-ordinator, I run a withdrawal class for Y9 Maori and Pacific Island students identified by teachers according to certain criteria.
I attempted to introduce ANCHOR ACTIVITIES and Community Problem Solving without success to meet the learning needs of other Y9 and 10 students.
Department Reports includes Media, Mathematics, Geography, Science, Commerce, ESOL, Philosophy.
