OPPORTUNITIES

Alongside academic success, students are encouraged to have a growing awareness of their character and to seek to involve themselves in both serving and leadership experiences. Senior students show initiative in their learning, seek to extend themselves in their academic pursuits, and cultivate positive relationships with both peers and staff members.

A range of academic and vocational courses are available. Three subjects are studied in Year 11 and three in Year 12.
