Our programs provide a stimulating and enjoyable learning experience for every student. The atmosphere of enjoyment of learning is central to our core programs and is underpinned by a carefully planned structure of Literacy, Numeracy, Science and Humanities. In addition, the students will experience a range of specialist programs in Technology, Arts, Health and PE and LOTE (Japanese and Spanish) which will assist them in making elective choices in year 9.
The curriculum and structure have been designed to enable teachers, students and parents to develop close and positive relationships with each other. This is because students learn well and teachers teach well when they know each other, respect each other and have the trust and willingness to work together. Our House structure supports individuals to grow socially and academically in a safe and stimulating environment.
