Middle School

The Middle School Campus caters for vibrant, active students between the ages of 11 and 15 years. There are twelve pastoral classes with approximately fourteen to eighteen students in each. The class focus is on teaching important life skills such as communication, social interaction, interpersonal skills, in conjunction with numeracy and literacy.

 

Our fantastic staff in the Middle School take pride in the work they do. They strive to develop a friendly and family environment, where students feel valued and respected. Middle School staff develop the confidence in students so they can make the most of every available learning opportunity.  All our staff believe in the school philosophy of ‘Unlocking The Potential Within’, and   work closely as a team so your child will have interaction with a variety of staff to provide a broad educational program to maximise your child’s learning.

 

Throughout the Middle School classes, an integrated approach to teaching and learning is implemented utilizing the Victorian Curriculum.
