secondary school

The High School classrooms are dedicated, purposeful learning spaces. The general learning room is a fine example of 21st Century learning spaces. It is a place where the students enjoy being and can move between a variety of work spaces with ease.

Our secondary school teachers are dedicated to getting to know their students as individuals and develop deliberately meaningful, individualised learning opportunities. 

The students in our secondary school are passionate people who desire to grow in the skills required to be effective throughout their lives.  Many of the students in the high school have their own personal relationship with Jesus and already demonstrate their desire to make a difference in the world. Learning experiences are active, useful and encourage students as they are supported to understand real life applications of the knowledge and skills they are working with.

GRADE 9-10 CAMP 2017

11th - 15th September the Grade 9 & 10 students travelled to Hamilton Island for their biannual "Big Camp".  We stayed in a holiday house on the island, with the focus of the camp to stretch the students to think and explore 'outside the box'.

Activities Experienced: Daily active involvement in the "You Version: Young & Free" Bible study, island golf buggy trips, pool swimming, working in the island nursery potting up plants, go carting, snorkeling, career opportunity talk at the Robert Oatley College, hiking Passage Peak, and watching the sunset over the island. The students were in the kitchen each meal, preparing and cooking amazing food.  Their Food Technology skills and knowledge put into place in a 'real-life' experience.

The students are an amazing group of young people who were bold enough to have a go at new experiences and strong enough to share their ideas, opinions and thoughts about life beyond school.

It has been my absolute pleasure to come away on camp with these students.

For their reflections please see the review section of our website available from the 18th of September.
