Middle School

Developing a love of learning

Our Middle Years curriculum aims to inspire a love of learning.

The needs of young adolescents are recognised through our Middle School program which allows each student to grow and learn within a strong community. When the students feel a strong sense of support and are comfortable in their environment, the learning experience is enhanced.

Our teachers plan engaging units based on the Australian Curriculum and focus on the needs of the learner. 

CORE SUBJECTS:

  • Religious Education
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (History , Geography, Civics and Citizenship, and Economics and Business)

Targeted Placement occurs in the Middle School in Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Science and SOSE.
