Message from the Principal

At Ivanhoe Grammar School, we understand just how important it is to give our Year 9 students the opportunity to grow and become independent learners. Spending a year at our new University Campus will provide our Year 9s with new and exciting learning opportunities.

Research pin-points Year 9 as a particularly pivotal year in a young person’s school life. Some of the most profound physical, social, emotional and intellectual changes take place during this stage of adolescence. It is a period of increased independence and curiosity and marks a crucial passage of maturity, as the exploration of adult experiences act as a rehearsal for impending adulthood.

Our long-standing Year 9 Program was designed to allow students in this key developmental stage, the opportunity to explore the adult world in a safe and supportive environment. Out-of-classroom learning experiences motivated students to engage in ways that promote long-standing critical thinking habits. Our Year 9 Program is an opportunity to embed our key values at a critical time in a young person’s development.

Initially designed as a two-week intensive science program, the La Trobe University segment of the Year 9 Program has been so successful that we have evolved it, through our partnership with La Trobe University, from once a year, to three times a year to the most recent evolution in the form of a dedicated University Campus for Year 9 students.

We have appointed experienced educational leader Mrs Stella Batsanis to the role of Head of Campus, leading a team of 20 school staff. Formerly the Head of Middle Years, and the School’s Wellbeing Director, Mrs Batsanis brings a breadth of knowledge to the position.

With access to university academics and subjects, involvement in community and international service programs, and continued out-of-classroom activities, full advantage will be taken of this pivotal year; preparing ripe and curious minds for a lifetime of learning.
