The College takes its responsibility for student well-being and the development of student excellence and voice very seriously. As a College, we recognise multiple types of intelligence. We reward practical problem solving, creativity, lateral thinking, building, fixing, designing and innovating. Every student benefits from a curriculum designed to encourage individuality and creativity.

Student Wellbeing

The College has a youth worker, careers advisor, integration teachers, and support teachers available to provide advice and assistance. All students have a form teacher/mentor and some programs have additional staff with the specific role of student wellbeing. Across the college there are program and year level leaders responsible for overseeing the progress and wellbeing of all students.
