Our College is recognised as a state leader in teaching and learning, student relationships and wellbeing. We create a safe social and physical environment that helps all our students learn and succeed.
The size of the College and the emphasis on developing and maintaining positive relationships means that we know each student as an individual. With 780 students, we can provide more personal support and greater access to opportunities in each student’s chosen fields of interest.
Parents and visitors compliment us on the warm and orderly school atmosphere and our strong sense of community. We encourage all our students to develop high expectations about themselves, their work and their behaviour, which is an expression of our values of Personal Best, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility.
Our approach involves working with parents to meet the individual needs of every student, and supporting them to fulfil their academic and co-curricular goals and dreams. The broad range of opportunities and pathways offered in the senior school, including VCE, VET and VCAL cater for the diverse interests, needs and abilities of our students. Over the past five years we have had consistent success, with all Year 12 students who applied for a tertiary placement being successful.
As one of a few accredited schools to provide the SEAL program (Select Entry Accelerated Learning) and part of the exclusive SEAL Academy, the College offers support for advanced learners.
Our students are engaged and enjoy coming to school, as reflected by the Student Attitudes to School survey results where we continue to score well above the state average, in fact in the top 25% of the state on variables such as Teacher effectiveness and empathy, Stimulated learning, Student safety and Connectedness to Peers to name a few. There is a genuine sense of community amongst teachers, students and parents, which we are all very proud of.
In a world that rewards perseverance, resilience, initiative, problem-solving and cooperation, our students leave well prepared for tertiary education, vocational training or employment. I am proud of the significant accomplishments of our students and the results our College has achieved in being a better choice in education.
