We believe the senior years should provide the opportunities, experiences and skills to enable students to design their future, and to be successful and connected members of society.
Year 10 students plan and prepare for a successful transition to Year 11. They will engage in a variety of learning experiences to assist them to make informed decisions about their Year 11 and 12 course.
Students are explicitly taught the requirements and high expectations of Senior students – what it means to look, think and act like a Senior in terms of effort and behaviour in class, within the school and as members of the community.
Year 11 is the year for students to mature and develop as school leaders. The notion of being a role model to younger students is explicitly taught.
Mental Health and Wellbeing is a focus as students face the challenges that come with Year 11 and 12 studies, work, family responsibilities, sport and other commitments.
Students are encouraged to develop independence and to take responsibility for the choices they make.
In Year 12 we strive for successful outcomes for every graduate and self-confidence in their transition to life beyond school.
The pastoral care program will focus on understanding the implications of finishing school and planning for 'Year 13'.
Year 12 students hold a distinct identity as school leaders and as such explicit teaching of leadership is embedded into the Pastoral Care program. A community project is undertaken to revisit the concept of school and community involvement.
