challenging and empowering
Our senior students are challenged to be genuine in their faith, diligent in their studies and positive in their engagement with the school community. These two final school years see them empowered to move forward into life beyond school with confidence and maturity.
A wide range of electives allows students to pursue personal interests and strengths in their HSC courses, and all Extension 1 and 2 subjects are available for study. Small classes allow for close individual attention and build student confidence, and study days provide opportunities for students to consolidate effective study habits. In our classrooms we foster a love for learning, encourage mutual support and cooperation, and value respect for each other. We encourage and celebrate the achievement of personal excellence for all students.
Our mentor program ensures that all students are given individual care as they negotiate the challenges of commitment to their senior studies and maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle. We aim to nurture our senior students as they develop the resilience, organisation and perseverance needed to succeed in the specific challenges of the HSC as well as the broader challenges that lie ahead. Many students enjoy opportunities provided for leadership, and sport, camps and excursions continue to be vital elements in the senior experience.
This is an exciting stage where students are prepared to reflect on our world in an intelligent and thoughtful way so that they might be equipped to be faithful servants of God as lifelong learners. We strive to challenge and inspire our students so that they might leave our community secure in their value and purpose in Christ, excited about bringing God’s truth and hope to the world, and sufficiently humble and confident to engage meaningfully with the world God has made.
