In September 2022, Laurus Ryecroft saw the launch of its new flagship programme: Year 7 Enhance.
The Enhance programme sees every student in Year 7 take part in a carousel of elective activities on Wednesday Unit 5.
They cycle through electives from the four Laurus cornerstones:
- Academic Enhancement
- Culture, Creativity & Rhetoric
- Competition & Physical Endeavour
- Leadership & Service
There are a huge range of activities on offer, from Origami and Aerospace Engineering to Yoga and Lacrosse!
We are pleased to report that our Year 7 cohort have truly embraced the diverse nature of our electives and developed an appreciation for experiences beyond their comfort zone.
“Aerospace Engineering was my favourite because it will help me pursue my dream to be a naval aviator.”
“I got to learn a new language and I can now spell my name – Sign Language is so fun!”
“My favourite session was Philosophy – it was interesting and I had fun hearing everyone’s ideas. It really got me thinking hard.”
“My favourite session was First Aid – the tasks were really fun! I now know how to keep myself and other people safe.”
All in all, 83% of Year 7 students say that the Enhance programme has enabled them to try something new and that they now understand the importance of taking part in after-school activities.
Well done Year 7 and thank you to our amazing staff for providing such a variety of activities!
