ELC

At CCC’s Early Learning Centre we believe every child is a unique individual, a capable learner, full of curiosity and wonder. Children are keen to explore, to share and communicate, to take risks and be challenged.

 

The CCC Early Learning Centre offers a rich, play-based learning education for your child in a modern and engaging setting for children from 15 months to Kindergarten age.

 

Our ELC is located on the campus of Cooloola Christian College – a Prep to Year 12 school with a reputation for providing excellence in education for the past 25 years. Come and explore our beautiful facilities and outdoor play areas – you won’t be disappointed!

PREP

Young learners are naturally curious and creative, they learn through hands on discovery and exploration. Prep children have focused learning and teaching time but also learn through play, investigations and real-life situations.

 

Let us nurture, care for and support your children on this journey, in a literacy and numeracy rich learning environment. Our Prep teachers and support staff are caring and sensitive, helping your children transition to school life.

 

Prep students have opportunities to learn in specialist areas such as Creative Arts, Spanish and HPE lessons throughout the week.They also have access to an exemplary Nature Space. Our desire is to inspire a love of learning in every student. Come and see how we believe in our early learners in Prep at CCC!

PRIMARY

The Primary Years at Cooloola Christian College are an enhancement and extension of the learning that has already happened in a child’s life. The College is passionate about supporting families to educate their children and developing lifelong learners The Primary Years program focuses on the Key Learning Areas giving students a range of foundational subjects with a strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy.

 

The Primary Years at Cooloola Christian College begin with Prep and continue through until Year 6. In each of these years, all students have specialist lessons in Creative Arts, Health and Physical Education and Spanish. Within each classroom, programs are delivered to cater for the many interests, needs and abilities of the children through a variety of experiences. Some students require support that is outside the everyday happenings of the classroom.

 

We endeavour to meet these needs through the learning support provided by our Enrichment Unit. The experienced Enrichment Unit staff work with students, their parents and teachers to assist them to become better equipped to undertake class work, assignments, tests and homework. A priority is given to verified students and those who qualify under the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data as being identified with a disability. These students are provided with an individual plan, with support to achieve this.

 

For those students who are gifted in different areas, opportunities are also provided for developing and exercising gifts in areas such as Opti-MINDS, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, creative thinking, public speaking, mathematics, science and writing workshops and competitions.With everything that is done in the Primary School, all staff work together, seeking to provide the best educational program for each child within their care.

MIDDLE

Middle school helps to bridge students between primary and senior school by caring for, stimulating and challenging students. Year 7 is a transition year through which students will be increasingly integrated into secondary studies and processes in a manner that will ease them into the new systems and prepare them for Years 8 and 9. During the year, they will have two key teachers for the core subjects, Maths & Science, History, Geography & Living Today.

 

Specialist subject teachers will cover the additional offerings of Art, Drama, Music, Technology, and Health & Physical Education. Years 8 -10 will see students exposed to the more traditional secondary schooling format, with a range of teachers taking responsibility for their subjects. As students proceed from Year 7 to Year 10 they will progress from largely teacher directed study to increasingly self-motivated and self-directed study, utilising the teacher as one of many resources contributing to their learning journey.

 

Middle school students are also provided 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-Learning Classroom). Our middle school curriculum aims to meet the needs of young maturing adolescents.

SENIOR

Senior schooling is a challenging time as students move from compulsory schooling into the worlds of post-compulsory education, tertiary studies and work. Students take on new responsibilities and face important decisions with far reaching effects.

 

At Cooloola Christian College we seek to help all students grow in personal responsibility for learning and spiritual growth. Students become more accountable for their behaviour; are required to make commitments; fulfil obligations; and make decisions on courses of action, schedules, and the fulfilling of goals.

 

The College seeks to give every student opportunity to discover their gifts, academic and non-academic, in a community of students, teachers and parents, striving to be faithful to God in all areas of life. The College works towards these goals by experiencing and developing:

  • a respect and desire to learn from God’s Word;
  • a community of respect and sharing for all students and staff;
  • maturity in personal goal setting, time management, and study skills;
  • use of the Independent Learning Centre for negotiated learning activities;
  • increased leadership opportunities
  • an opportunity to be part of a proud record of success in students entering the workforce and tertiary study.

 

Our Independent Learning Centre also provides opportunity for our students to engage with external studies such as head start courses, vocational courses and school-based traineeships.

 

Our Graduates are creative and critical thinkers, compassionate students who love to serve, ethical and moral decision makers, informed and responsible citizens, learners for life and positive contributors to our community and world. To find out why our Graduates are so well equipped and ready to embark on the next stage of their life journey, contact us today.
