Years 7 - 10
Our Junior High School programme offers a wide variety of learning opportunities, including core curriculum subjects and a range of ‘hands on’ subjects. Extra-curricular activities include camps, and leadership and teamwork opportunities through the Student Representative Council and sporting teams. Exploration of the Bible through the Encounter programme, and special events offered through the pastoral care programme provide students with the option to explore and broaden their Christian experience. Teachers mentor and support the students’ learning both in and out of the classroom.
“Our high-quality Junior High programme is only possible because of the teachers involved, providing a quality curriculum and strong pastoral care. And this is why as Principal I am personally committed to having the right quality teachers.”
Phil Murray, Principal
At this age, students can sometimes struggle with relationships, as they try to understand the consequences of social media and manage in-school relationships and develop their self-esteem. We appreciate these years can be challenging for both students and parents. The school seeks to support families, by personal interaction and with special programs available for girls and boys. In addition, each student's personal development and wellbeing is supported through access to the school chaplaincy service. This service provides an onsite school chaplain 3 days each week. The school chaplain presents a protective behaviours programme to groups of students and also offers counselling when requested.

What a fantastic experience it is for young people to serve others. The school has sent teams of students to serve the people of the Philippines, Cambodia and Mauritius. 2018 will see our fourth group of Year 10 students embark on a mission trip abroad.
Our students will have the opportunity to work with families, communities and schools to engage with educational and environmental development programmes. The Year 10 group engage in a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the year to enable them to participate in these service trips.
