Life Ready is a mandatory 25 hour program for students in Years 11 and/or 12 in NSW public schools.
It aims to prepare and support senior students as they encounter situations related to health and safety as they become more independent and gain more responsibilities.
Life Ready focuses on offering opportunities for students to build the functional knowledge and skills for life after school.
The content of the school’s Life Ready program is based on the needs and interests of students. This means that each year, Winmalee High School develops a program that is relevant to the particular group or cohort of senior students.
The planning, delivery and evaluation of Life Ready is guided by student learning needs and the Winmalee community context.
There are two main approaches that Winmalee High uses to implement Life Ready. The approaches are:
- Timetabled lessons
- Seminar programs.
