Secondary

Through a carefully planned and articulated flexible program catering for individual learning needs, students in Years 7-12 are provided with meaningful opportunities to engage in real world learning

The College’s approach to teaching and learning in the Secondary Phase of Learning recognises the importance of the individual needs of students. Students are engaged and challenged in the learning through pedagogy that promotes students:

  • thinking about broader issues beyond home and community
  • engaging with diverse cultures and technologies
  • handling of new media and multi-modal forms of communicating
  • think abstractly about important ideas
  • engaging in authentic learning
  • seeking meaning in their lives at school and beyond
  • questioning individual identity and beliefs – their place in the world

A Work Studies Program and a Transition Program identify students’ strengths and interests and aligned these with individual pathways for future learning and the world of work. 

Secondary students are guided and encouraged to be independent learners who are curious and creative in their approach to problem solving. Literacy and numeracy understanding remains the major curriculum priority. Our rigorous curriculum is complimented by a focus on the development on 21st Century skills, small class sizes and fluid groups based on the needs of the individual student.

The College Secondary academic program provides the opportunity to explore new areas of study through the College module program. Students select module units covering a range of subjects from a wide variety of disciplines, to study alongside the Core Curriculum. All subjects are developed in line with the Australian Curriculum.
