We trust that through the breadth of our curriculum and the range of opportunities we offer, each student will develop to their full potential.

Our Year 7 to 12 curriculum is a broad and varied offering of learning providing a wide range of opportunities for students to nurture and strengthen their interests and skills.
Diverse SACE, VET and flexible learning pathways ensure your child graduates having had every opportunity to reach their full potential.
Students focus on aspects of religion or spirituality within or across traditions and explore ethical and social justice issues. Students gain an appreciation of, and respect for, the different ways in which people develop an understanding and knowledge of religion as something living and dynamic, and the ways in which they think, feel and act because of their religious beliefs. Units developed from the Crossways document allow students to develop their knowledge and understanding of the Catholic tradition, ethos, values and culture that inform our College.
Students develop a broad range of skills and knowledge through exploring materials such as wood and metal in addition to exposure to systems concepts such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Advanced Manufacturing through both practical and theoretical experiences.
Students use computational thinking and digital systems to design, create, implement, manage and evaluate sustainable and innovative digital solutions to meet and redefine current and future needs.
Our English curriculum caters to students of all stages and abilities. We support students’ growing understanding and use of literacy skills and focus on developing their knowledge and understanding in listening, reading, viewing, speaking and writing.
From Reception, students learn Italian as a second language, and in Year 7 are offered the choice of Italian or Japanese. Our Language curriculum has a leading focus on intercultural awareness.
The Personal Learning Plan (PLP) and Research Project are compulsory requirements of the SACE. The PLP helps students to plan for their future and assists them in choosing the subjects they will study in Years 11 and 12. In the Research Project, students have the opportunity to study an area of interest in-depth and use their creativity and initiative, while developing the research and presentation skills they will require in further study or work.
Students investigate how to be proactive about their own and others health and wellbeing. They study technology (textiles), food, and physical education and learn to perform complex skills in a range of practical and physical activities.
Students study aspects of human society and culture to deepen their understanding of the natural and human environments and ethical behaviours.
We instil in students an appreciation of the place of mathematics and, more broadly, numeracy in society, extending students’ ability to think mathematically, through developing flexibility and logical reasoning.
Students are encouraged to develop skills in critical and creative thinking and gain confidence in self-expression and creativity through expressive arts, visual arts and music. Our arts curriculum develops students’ ability to communicate meaning or intent through different art forms including dance and drama.
With access to specialist subjects and teachers, student learning is supported by specialist facilities including music technology, performing arts, science laboratories, flexible learning spaces, commercial kitchens, resource centre, technology, sporting academies and visual arts.Read more
