Students

Students are at the core of our work as educators. Advancing educational opportunities and outcomes for our students is a priority area for the ENABLE Coalition of Schools. Some of the student centred initiatives and programs developed by ENABLE include:

  • ENABLE - Griffith University Days of Excellence: A series of specially designed University experience days for high achieving ENABLE students, these programs seek to enrich and extend the academic experience of students though interactive sessions and lectures conducted by tertiary academics. Current ongoing programs have been developed in the areas of Business, Information and Communications Technology, Human Services, Mathematics, Nursing and Midwifery.
  • ENABLE – Griffith Satellite Program: Developed for ENABLE schools which are situated in regional areas, this initiative enables students who are disadvantaged by geographical location to participate in university early admissions programs. A travelling academic delivers university courses in schools, with the school acting as a satellite campus of the university.
  • ENABLE Human Rights Art Competition: Open to all students enrolled in an ENABLE school, the art competition seeks to provide community awareness about human rights and social justice issues.
  • ENABLE Student Leadership/Joint Schools Council: Developed in partnership with the Youth without Borders the ENABLE Student Leadership program aims to develop the leadership capacity and ‘cultural capital’ of aspiring student leaders in our cluster. The first of its kind in the region, the program presents aspiring student leaders with quality professional learning and networking opportunities in the form on a one day conference for selected Year 11 and students who are aspiring leaders. Students then have the opportunity of nominating for the ENABLE Joint Schools Council.
  • Dux Dinner: This is a celebration event that acknowledges and honours the exemplary achievements of our school duxes. The dinner is well-attended by school leaders, parliamentarians and community leaders.
  • Debating Competitions: The ENABLE Debating Competition is run by the ENABLE English HODs’ Network. The non-conventional style of these competitions serve to build the confidence of our students in public speaking.
  • Chamber of Commerce: ENABLE students are integral to a variety of initiatives offered through the Logan Chamber of Commerce. This includes leadership programs, representation at various wings of the Junior Chamber of Commerce and the annual ‘Dream It Up’ event.
  • ENABLE Cup- ENABLE student athletes have the opportunity to participate in a once a term sporting competition in the sports of touch, soccer, volleyball and basketball.
