Curriculum

Senior School


Senior School: Years 10 - 12


Senior School builds upon the academic and personal development foundations of Middle School and is focused towards students acquiring a learning and vocational pathway.

Opportunity for extension and vocational subjects including traineeships, TAFE and University subjects are available progressively through the senior school years.

Year Level Coordinators continue to provide a strong support, pastoral and guidance role over the senior school years to ensure students grow in confidence and leadership alongside their academic development.

Leadership and Service proved dual themes for student personal and spiritual development. Each year level undertakes projects and activities within and external to the College to assist and benefit others.

Student Leadership is fostered through the activities of the Senior School SRC, Peer Mentoring Program, Prefect, House, Co-curricular and College Captains.
