Building Confidence and Character
Adolescence is an exciting and unique time of development, full of possibilities and opportunities. In our Middle School, we recognise the importance of providing special teaching strategies that engage, equip, and empower students to navigate this exciting journey.
We believe in addressing students’ whole development, which includes intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth. To achieve this, our curriculum is designed to be challenging and meaningful, with a blend of rigour, relevance, variety, and choice. Our Core Studies program offers an integrated approach, allowing students to see the connection between different subjects.
We aim to help our students know and love God, maturing as godly people with passion and purpose. We support them to develop the attitudes, habits and skills required to become a person who can make a positive difference in the world, by loving and serving one another, to the glory of God.
Nurturing and Fair Approach
We are faithful and consistent in our beliefs while being nurturing and fair in our approach. We recognise that adolescence can be a challenging time, and we provide a safe and supportive environment that promotes healthy risk-taking and personal growth.
Practical Problem Solving and Team Building
With a continuing emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy skill development, our teaching caters for varying learning styles, helping to enable practical problem-solving, independent learning, as well as team building capabilities. Our goal is to provide students with the tools they need to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally, both in Middle School and beyond. This includes our Math Pathways program, which was launched in 2016. The program enables learners to move at their own pace, providing analytics and insights into their learning. You can read more about this fantastic program in our Maths Pathways Factsheet.
Dedicated Teachers and Strong Support Systems
We understand that the middle school years can be a pivotal time for students. Our Middle School wellbeing and pastoral care program is integrated into all aspects of our school community, ensuring that every student receives the care and support they need to thrive. We make the transition from Primary to Middle School as smooth as possible by providing dedicated teachers to oversee learning and progress. Our teachers work closely with students, guiding them through the challenges of adolescence with patience, understanding, and care.
Preparation for the Future
By the end of Year 9, students are already mapping pathways in preparation for their Senior years. We provide students with the support and resources they need to achieve their goals and dreams, whether they are planning to attend university, enter the workforce, or pursue other paths. Our Middle School is committed to helping students achieve their full potential and to thrive during this exciting time of development.
