Middle School Community 7 – 9

Building on Excellence

The Middle School nurtures adolescents as they make their transition into young adulthood.

Students in Years 7 to 9 have access to state-of-the-art facilities to develop their academic and social skills within a safe and supportive learning community.

Since 2021, Year 7 students have moved to a secondary setting, following the state guidelines for all schools to transition by 2022.

The Middle School focuses on strong pastoral care and support, creative and innovative learning opportunities and hands on learning. The curriculum incorporates problem-based learning with a focus on preparing students for the future and equipping them with life skills. To help each student achieve their best, we use a team-based approach involving parents, carers, teachers, counsellors and the students themselves.

Students are encouraged to develop their own learning programs, so they acquire values essential in their future careers and study. Staff provide a safe and caring environment within the Catholic tradition, with students developing personal responsibility.
