SECONDARY SCHOOL

Our College follows the guidelines of the NSW Board of Studies in all matters of curriculum.  The students sit for the external examinations at the end of Year 12 – the Higher School Certificate.

Within the common guidelines set out by the Board of Studies, there is freedom for each school to design, in part, its own curriculum.  As with the Junior School, all subjects are taught from a Christian perspective by Christian teachers.

As well as the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, all students must study History/Geography, and choose two elective subjects in Years 9 and 10.  In Years 11 and 12 all subjects are elective except English, although students must choose a balanced study pattern.  The elective subjects offered for the current year are listed under Senior School. The College offers a wide range of elective subjects.  For more information on the Senior years, a separate Information Book is available from the Registrar.

DAILY SCHOOL TIMES

Junior School runs from 9am to 3.15pm each day and Secondary School runs from 8.45am to 3.15pm each day.  The Secondary School operates with a 2-week cycle – Red Week and Blue Week.  There are 4 x 75 minute Periods each day.
