In the Secondary Department we aim to challenge and motivate students, encouraging a positive work ethic. As the students move through the secondary school, they continue to develop knowledge, life skills and interpersonal skills to help prepare themselves for life after school in the workforce, leisure activities and participation in the broader community.
A wide range of programs are offered to enable students to develop to their full potential and provide the necessary skills required for their transition into the Pathways program and for individual post school options.
Students are provided with the opportunity to develop a number of skills through our extra-curricular programs. These programs provide rich learning experiences for our students, supporting and assisting them to develop their personal and social capabilities.
Student voice and agency drives our extra curricular programs, giving students ownership of their learning programs and providing options such as:
