Year 7 is a transition year, a time for students to mature, gain greater independence and prepare for Years 8 and 9 and beyond. Through Year 7 key teachers lead the core subjects English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Pastoral Care/ Biblical Studies. Specialist subject teachers are responsible for the additional offerings of Art, Drama, Music, Technology, Outdoor Education, and Health & Physical Education.
The College has a compulsory BYOD laptop program for students in Years 7 to 12. This is backed by our robust, high-speed wireless network and internet access that is filtered to ensure students are kept safe online. Classwork and assessment items that were traditionally paper-based are now completed and assessed electronically, reducing paper usage and preparing students for work and life after high school. Microsoft Office 365 email, cloud storage, and productivity software, as well as software required for specialist classes, are provided by the College, and our IT Technicians are available throughout the school day to quickly resolve any technical issues students may be having.
Through Years 8 -10 students work with a range of teachers who take responsibility for Core and Elective subjects.
Through Year 7-10 students have many co-curricular opportunities such as Football Academy, Beyond the Classroom experiences and SPIN (Special Interest) Activities. Students requiring extra assistance continue to be supported through our Enrichment Unit and MLC (Multi-Level Classroom).
