About our Senior School

Our emphasis in these final years of school is on character development, academic rigour, and leadership and so the Senior School is deliberately integrated within the entire Secondary Campus alongside the Middle School. Senior schooling is very much about leadership and our senior students are wonderful role models to our younger students; our Year 12 students act as buddies for our Year 7 students, supporting their transition into the Middle School.

During Year 10, students begin to refine their career aspirations and, accordingly, their studies. Explore and Soar Week provides opportunities to investigate and extend their thinking about self and others through numerous travel options and the Citizenship project demands that students commit to raising awareness, support and funds for a service organisation of their choice.

Year 11 is the year of leadership. In this year our school leaders are elected. School trips to local, national and international destinations provide wonderful opportunities for growth, SACE studies begin and students get the opportunity to tackle the Stage 2 Research Project.

Year 12 is a special year for our students. Highlights include the Retreat, Formal and Graduation celebrations. Regular workshops and meetings help steer these young adults towards excellent results. While their focus is on achieving their best, our Year 12 students remain heavily involved in school life. They play leadership and mentoring roles in our bands, ensembles, choirs and drama productions. They are pivotal is helping our sports teams thrive.

Our Senior School provides opportunities that enable our graduating young adults an ideal transition towards further independence and to be future good citizens and leaders of society. By the time they depart the School gates, they know and learn what it means to be a team player and have developed a strong sense of community. They care for others, willingly give to others, and care for the environment and the future. Their education is provided by caring, passionate and committed staff who themselves embrace, and have nurtured in their students, a culture of continuous learning.

Our students will have learned to soar.
