The JMSS Diploma acknowledges and rewards the development of important skills and attributes as outlined in the school’s Learner Developmental Framework.
Acknowledging and rewarding development.
The school believes that these skills and attributes are important in the education and growth of the highly capable leaders and pioneers in science that JMSS produces.
The Diploma champions the development of the whole person, not only their academic achievement and will complement the Victorian Certificate of Education.
The JMSS Diploma is a three year journey designed to inspire, nurture and challenge students to become the best they can be. Students will receive the JMSS Diploma at the end of their three years at JMSS along with their VCE certificate.
Starting at Year Ten, the JMSS Diploma aims to encourage and inspire students to:
- Lead balanced, enriched and passionate lives;
- Develop as well-rounded individuals with a broad range of skills, perspectives and interests;
- Fully develop their interests, strengths and capacities;
- Gain recognition for student-driven initiatives, talents, strengths and service;
- Foster broad academic interests.
