Excellence programs



Tewantin State School implements an innovative program designed for students exceeding in their studies called Acceler8. This program enables bright, highly motivated students to be grouped together, inspiring and challenging them.

This program covers eight different key learning areas, including:


  • The Arts (Visual Art, Music, Dance, Drama, Media)
  • English
  • History
  • ICTs (Information, Communication and Technology)
  • LOTE (Languages Other than English)
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Sport


Throughout the year, students are provided with many opportunities to engage in a range of activities offered through Acceler8. Programs that are currently offered include:

Advanced Music Camp

This annual event invites talented musicians to perform with like-minded students across the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland. Students' musician skills are extended whilst on the camp and continue as they are encouraged to play in all school music groups.


This program complements the extension activities your child's class teacher provides, and also gives the students the opportunity to work with like-minded students on challenging tasks, preparing them for later events such as the UNSW Mathematics or Australian Mathematics test.
Selected students in Year 5-7 participate in the Australian Mathematics Enrichment and Challenge Stages.
