Our College prides itself on the broad curricular and co-curricular programs available to students. We offer VCE, VCAL and VET subjects in senior school years and specialist programs for our students in Years 7 to 10, with the aim to further extend the talents of each individual in our school. We aim to provide excellence in all our education programs. High expectations are reflected through high levels of student responsibility and conduct and in student high success rate in relation to entrance to tertiary education and employment.
Student voice is integral to the teaching and learning at the College and we recognise that when we ‘work together’ we can ‘learn together’. The inclusion of student voice across the college is constantly promoted through our leadership opportunities which advance the capacity of our students and staff.
