All About Room 5
Room 5 is the senior class at Outram school and is comprised of a mix of Year 7 and 8 students. Academically, there is a strong focus within the class of ensuring the students are prepared for secondary school. Many of the students have put their hands up to be school leaders, as School Council members or as House Leaders. These school leaders play an integral role in the life of the school. These students help organise and provide key support on school occasions such as sports days, social events such as discos, fundraising events and House events. They also provide leadership in important school areas such as the Allen Centre, sport and the Envirogroup. There is a strong Education Outside the Classroom focus, this is delivered through school camp, a syndicate wide termly focus on an EOTC activity and also a programme which is tailored for the senior class - CAPES+. This looks at physically challenging and extending our Year 7 and 8s in a programme that takes part outside the regular classroom programme. As a group, Room 5 students set themselves high standards. Students are interested in their learning, they are given opportunities to reach their potential, they have a sense of humour, they are loyal to each other, they are a pleasure to teach.
