In senior years, we further encourage students to align their studies with their personal aspirations and goals.
Our personalised approach to teaching ensures that we actively assist students through the challenges of senior years to develop autonomy, commitment and self-reliance.
A collaborative partnership between staff, students and their families strengthens the academic and personal support that students need and nurtures a smooth transition towards tertiary education, further training or employment.
VCE induction, study skills workshops, holiday revision and exam preparation programs further assist students during Years 11 and 12.
We offer an excellent selection of VCE subject choices and for students seeking employment, we offer the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).
Students are encouraged to examine their individual pathways and to seek experiences in tertiary education, workplace or applied learning.
By Year 10, some students are already preparing for further study at university or TAFE, while others are more focused on vocational pathways and are looking to prepare for an apprenticeship or other employment-based training.
In addition to the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Humanities and Science, a comprehensive work education program assists students to explore future careers and encourages the development of vocational skills. A two-week Work Experience Program is compulsory.
A range of electives helps students to further their interests in specific curricular programs leading to University, TAFE and employment. This includes subjects that connect with Year 11 and 12 studies.
Comprehensive course advice helps students to identify their strengths, aspirations and goals and the pathways available to them.
