In the Junior School, our teaching and learning are underpinned by evidence-based practices, including explicit phonics instruction through the Sounds-Write program and use of mentor texts.
Play-based learning, modelled on the Walker Learning Approach, is pivotal to our young learners’ development and growth. Focus students work 1:1 with the classroom teacher to develop their learning and provide a springboard for other learning occurring throughout the day. The Junior School has a dedicated Investigations room with learning spaces such as the Making Table, Tinker Table, Research Lab, Construction Zones and many other spaces.
Students have access to a range of specialist subjects and classrooms, including Art, Music, Health, PE, Science and Food Technology.
Boasting a wide range of core and elective subjects, the Senior School sets our students up for success beyond the classroom.
In the Middle Years, the Experiential Program is key to developing important life-skills such as perseverance, team-work and problem-solving. The Experiential Program sees students visiting different locations throughout the year, including Rocklands Reservoir and the Grampians National Park.
Senior Pathways are designed directly around student interest and aspirations. Career Pathways enable a successful transition to further education, training or full-time employment.
