WELCOME TO SENIOR YEARS

Taking a positive and responsible approach to learning, taking advantage of the experiences on offer, being highly motivated and prepared to put in the hard work will inevitably lead to a successful outcome. The timetable is methodically organized so that all students can attempt subjects at a higher level.  Don’t be afraid to take risks, and extend yourself.


Remember we offer a comprehensive curriculum including an extensive range of VCE subjects, the VCAL certificate, as well as an excellent selection of Vocational Education and Training units.  In fact past experience indicates that our College caters for the diverse needs of all students: those wishing to go to university, those who want to attend a TAFE College, those aiming at an apprenticeship or traineeship and those seeking employment.


The staff work exceptionally hard to foster a caring learning environment which emphasizes self discipline, respect and the importance of taking personal responsibility for your actions.  We, in fact, pride ourselves on being a considerate, nurturing community so please ask for assistance if there are issues or concerns.  It is essential that you are happy and contented because this will help you to be successful.


Enjoy your time in the senior part of the College.  Take advantage of the opportunities to develop new skills, knowledge and personal qualities that will hold you in good stead for the future. Strive to achieve your full academic, physical and social potential.


Throughout your senior years, you will make many friendships and create lifelong relationships with many of your peers and teachers.  Remember the following quotes:

“Nothing is achieved without effort”
“Only those who dare to fail can ever achieve greatness.”
“Achieving starts with believing.”
