Contemporary learning and pastoral care are the focus for Year 7 students who begin their secondary education at James Sheahan Catholic High School. To strengthen their transition to high school, each student is in an EAGLE class, which allows them to have the same teacher for English, History and Religion. Teaching the same students more frequently allows for an enhanced level of support for the students' social and emotional adjustment in a new environment.
EAGLE classes have a contemporary learning focus with the skills, concepts and outcomes from each of the subjects interconnected to allow students authentic learning experiences that are relevant to a changing world. With the emphasis on skill development, students learn to communicate effectively, think critically, work collaboratively and develop the necessary abilities that allow them to explore and experiment with knowledge.

This process is enhanced by flexible learning spaces which facilitate the movement of students within the room, with whiteboard surfaces on desks permitting easier expression of group and individual ideas. Through EAGLE and other learning approaches, James Sheahan students gain a deeper understanding of concepts and standards at the heart of what they learn in order to build lifelong habits of learning. Lifelong learners are more likely to be happier, healthier, have rewarding jobs and contribute more to society.
