Failsafe – A program designed to assist senior students with time management; assessment tasks, revision and exam preparation.

Failsafe is a specialised program conducted each Wednesday for Years 11 and 12 in the THS Library. Failsafe permits at least three hours each week for students to plan and manage their homework, assessments and revision. The Library acts as the base and each student is required to complete a diary booklet outlining their activities. As many senior students undertake VET and TAFE subjects on Wednesdays attendance is dependent on the student's subject selections. Those students unable to attend on the Wednesday are required to complete the Failsafe hours and booklet entries in their Private Study periods. Teachers are allocated to Failsafe to supervise and assist students with any course related difficulties.

 Senior students have access to the library and trained staff during supervised Private Study and Failsafe.

Year 10 students are trained by TAFE and assist targeted students from the junior school with both literacy and numeracy. Peer reading takes place during DEAR time in the library on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays
