PORTSIDE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE - MIDDLE SCHOOL - YEARS 7-9
Middle School students identify their interests and talents through a range of subjects and disciplines in preparation for Senior School. We recognise the importance of deep and applied knowledge, as well as providing opportunities for students to develop the softer skills such as personal and time management, goal setting, critical thinking and collaboration.
Homeroom teachers mentor students spiritually with daily devotions, encouraging them to seek God and know Him personally.
We provide a nurturing, supportive and structured environment to give our students the confidence to explore and learn collaboratively. Christian values are strongly emphasised, with the focus on developing each student’s character and success.
Portside Christian College meets the goals of the Australian curriculum for our Middle School students. We provide a dynamic program which supports and extends student's abilities and creates independence.
