The Middle School structure (Years 9 and 10) aims to provide a diverse and rich program that is designed to challenge students to become involved in their own learning and commit to their own self-improvement. The College offers learning opportunities and enrichment programs that motivate and prepare students for multiple pathways.
As a team, we create and implement programs that aim to improve each student, academically, with their health & wellbeing and with their careers. Our intention is to motivate and prepare each student for multiple pathways beyond Year 10. The Curriculum in the middle school offers students the opportunity to continue studying a broad range of subject areas, these are known as our core subjects, these include English, Mathematics, Science, Global Literacy, Health and Physical Education. Students have the opportunity to extend themselves during their Middle School years by study VCE and VET during their middle years.
We offer students a range of extra-curricular opportunities, including various excursions and incursions all aimed at strengthening student’s knowledge and skills related to their academic learning, improved wellbeing outcomes and pathway development. Students have various Leadership Opportunities such as: Middle School Captains, SRC, Peer Support Program & Monash University Access Champions.
We have wonderful partnerships with Monash University and BEACON foundation who support students in developing leadership and career related skills and knowledge.
Our careers and pathways coordinator works closely with the middle year’s team and students in developing the skills and attributes employers look for. Year 10 students then put these skills and knowledge into practice through our work experience initiative. We are very proud and confident in the various curriculum and programs we offer students. Our core business is working with our community, families, students, staff and the wider community in achieving best outcomes for every student. This is what matters most.
